Description

Crassula tetragona, commonly known as Miniature Pine Tree or Crassula Watch Chain, is a unique succulent with a tree-like appearance.

How to grow and care for Crassula tetragona:

  1. Light requirements: Crassula tetragona thrives in bright, indirect light. Place it near a window where it can receive several hours of sunlight each day. It can tolerate some direct sunlight, but be cautious of intense, scorching rays that can cause sunburn.
  2. Temperature: This succulent prefers average room temperatures between 65°F and 75°F (18°C and 24°C). It can tolerate slightly lower temperatures, but avoid exposing it to frost or extreme cold.
  3. Watering: Crassula tetragona has low water requirements. Allow the soil to dry out between waterings. Check the moisture level by inserting your finger into the soil. If it feels dry up to the first knuckle, it’s time to water. Water thoroughly, ensuring that excess water drains out of the pot. Avoid overwatering, as it can lead to root rot. During the winter months, reduce watering even further as the plant goes into a dormant period.
  4. Soil: Use a well-draining succulent or cactus potting mix. The soil should be loose and fast-draining to prevent waterlogging. You can also create your own mix by combining regular potting soil with perlite or coarse sand to improve drainage.
  5. Fertilizer: Crassula tetragona doesn’t require frequent fertilization. During the active growing season in spring and summer, you can feed it with a balanced, diluted succulent fertilizer once a month. Follow the instructions on the fertilizer packaging for the correct dilution ratio. Avoid fertilizing during the dormant period.
  6. Propagation: Crassula tetragona can be propagated through stem cuttings. Take a healthy cutting and allow it to dry for a few days until the cut end calluses over. Then, plant the cutting in well-draining soil and mist lightly. Keep it in a warm, bright location. Once the cutting develops roots, you can treat it as a mature plant.
  7. Pruning: Pruning is not usually necessary for Crassula tetragona. However, you can trim back any leggy or unruly growth to maintain a more compact shape. Use clean, sharp scissors or pruning shears and make clean cuts just above a leaf node.
  8. Pests and diseases: Crassula tetragona is generally resistant to pests and diseases. However, keep an eye out for common succulent pests such as mealybugs and scale insects. If you notice any signs of infestation, isolate the affected plant and treat it with an appropriate organic insecticide or by wiping the pests off with a cotton swab dipped in rubbing alcohol.

Remember to observe your Crassula tetragona regularly and adjust your care routine as needed. With proper attention to light, water, and temperature requirements, your succulent should thrive and maintain its tree-like appearance.
