How to Grow This Magical Plant at Home:
- Here’s what you need to know – well, there are 2 different ways to reproduce this plant – the first way is to cut a twig, from 5 to 15 cm in length, leave it to dry for a couple of days and plant it either in clean sand or in an equal combination of soil and sand. It should be watered sparingly in 3-4 days. It is not necessary for the soil to be wet at all times as too much water could cause cuttings to rot. It will take the cuttings less than a month to root, when they should be separately planted in a better quality soil.
- The second method of reproduction is the leaf. It’s very simple –if you tear a leaf off the branch and lay it on the semi-most soil, it will begin to root in the places where it was attached to the branch in about a month’s time. And then, when it is replanted, it needs the same type of soil as for other succulents, which consists of 20 % humus, 40 % sand, 20 % of the houseplant compost and the rest can be gravel and broken bricks.
As we mentioned before, the Feng Shui experts say that this amazing plant does not require a big pot but if you plant it in a bigger pot and enrich the soil with fertilizers, it will reward you with faster growth. The roots need to be pruned if you re-pot the plant and the stems should be cut back to keep an attractive shape. Many people around the world think that this plant is a symbol of good luck, so it is a perfect housewarming gift believed to bring overall prosperity, fortune and wealth. If you want to congratulate someone on a new business or marriage, Crassula is a wonderful choice. Jade is a precious stone, signifying something of great value. Its leaves have a beautiful jade-green color that stands for growth and renewal, while the shape of the leaves resemble small coins, attracting material wealth and prosperity to the owner.
