Crassula ovata “Gollum” & “Hobbit”
CARE of Gollum Jade, Trumpet Jade, Hobbit's Pipe Jade, ET's Fingers (Crassula):
Crassula do not consume much water, this plant stores water in its fleshy leaves and does not evaporate much water due to the fat layer on the leaves. Water the Crassula every now and then, pay attention make sure the soil is completely dry before watering again.
In the summer it is best to leave the Crassula dry for 1 week and in the winter 6 weeks before watering again.
When the leaves of the Crassula become wrinkled, this is a sign that the plant is not getting enough water. After watering, these wrinkles generally disappear within a day. Too much water causes more problems. This can cause the roots and even the trunks to rot. This will be the first to show through the yellowing of the leaf.
Crassula prefers a sunny position. Especially in winter it is wise to place the plant in front of a window. In the summer months it will get very hot behind a south-facing window. It is better to place the houseplant up to 3 meters behind the window. Direct sunlight will rarely cause problems, especially if the plant can gradually get used to it.
