No, it’s not an artificial plant – but you could easily be mistaken! This peculiar little succulent has triangular, fleshy leaves carried in upright stacks which gradually become more horizontal as they grow. Commonly known as String of Buttons, this unusual house plant is perfect for a sunny windowsill. Crassula perforata shows surprising tolerance to drought making a great house warming gift for beginner gardeners. Height and spread: 60cm (24").

Please note: Some houseplants are toxic or harmful to pets if ingested. If you believe your pet has consumed a poisonous plant then seek veterinary attention immediately. Take a sample of the plant with you.

Grow Crassula in full light with some shelter from the hottest sun. An average temperature of 10- 23C (50-75F) is ideal.
Water Crassula whenever necessary, allowing the compost to dry out between waterings. These fleshy leaved succulents store water in their leaves so they use surpisingly little water throughout the hot summer months. House plants should be fed regularly between March and September when they are in active growth. Reduce watering in winter.
