Habitat and Location:

Crassula mollis, also known as Velvet Crassula, is a succulent plant native to Cape Province in South Africa. This species typically inhabits rocky outcrops and well-drained soils in semi-arid regions, thriving in sunny, dry environments.


Description and Key Features:

Crassula mollis is noted for its soft, velvety leaves that are covered in fine hairs, giving the plant a unique and tactile appearance. The leaves are bright green and form compact, rosette-like clusters. This species may occasionally produce small, star-shaped flowers that are usually white or pink, adding a subtle charm to its overall aesthetic.


This species is a compact and visually appealing addition to any succulent collection, whether in a greenhouse, outdoor garden, or as a houseplant. Its distinctive leaf texture and compact growth habit make it an attractive choice for various settings.


Care Instructions:

For optimal growth, Crassula mollis should be placed in bright, direct sunlight. While it can tolerate some shade, it thrives best with ample sunlight. Ensure the plant is in a well-draining mix, of soil, grit, sand, gravel and fine orchid bark, as it is susceptible to root rot if overwatered. Water the plant moderately, allowing the soil to dry out completely between waterings, and reduce the frequency during the cooler months.


Maintain an environment with daytime temperatures ranging from 16-24 degrees Celsius and nighttime temperatures between 07-17 degrees Celsius. Water less frequently when temperatures are at the lower end of the range. Crassula mollis prefers low to moderate humidity and can adapt well to average household humidity levels. Avoid excessive misting, as the plant prefers drier conditions.
