Crassulas are succulent sub-shrubs with small pink or white flowers. Native to South Africa and Mozambique, they are commonly grown as houseplants in cooler regions.
Crassula ’Buddha’s Temple’ is an unusual, eye-catching plant with upward facing leaves that resemble a Chinese temple. They have a powdery coating which is rubbed off by water or touch – water plants from below to avoid this. A mature plant may bear pink flowers in summer. It will reach around 15cm tall.
Buddha's Temple prefers bright, airy conditions, in cactus compost. Water sparingly and feed fortnightly with a balanced liquid fertiliser. Reduce watering in autumn.
Toxic to cats and dogs, so best to keep well out of reach of pets.
Pot size is 4.5cm
