Planting and care

Not under any circumstances let your Crassula fill in with water.
Never overwater your succulent plant as the leaves can rot. Water only when necessary.
If you’re watering your succulent from underneath, by letting the plant sit in a bowl of water, ensure to filter the excess water after a few minutes.
Knock off the oil soil from the plant root by removing all rotted and dead roots.
While repotting your succulent, make sure the soil is dry, and then remove the pot gently.
Place the plant in the new pot and refill with potting soil, flaring the roots out as you repot.
After planting, leave the plant dryfor a week, before starting to water lightly to reduce the risk of root rot.
