The Money Plant, also known as Crassula ovata, is a succulent branched shrub that can grow up to 2.5 metres in height. The thick, fleshy, green leaves are arranged in opposite pairs along the stem, which branch readily, and are easy to break off at each bud for propagation.

Crassula ovata is often called the Jade plant, because of the colour of its leaves. The variety 'Gollum' has characteristic long, incurved leaves that form a quill shape, almost tubular in appearance, which explains common names such as Horn Tree and Trumpet Jade. All our potted plants come in compostable coir pots - read more here.

Additional Information

Plant Care

Light

Does best in good light, and will tolerate direct sunlight. It will cope with more moderate light levels, as long as it is not over watered

Watering

Needs very little water, especially in winter. The soil should be allowed to dry out between watering. Excess water may cause the stems to rot.

Pruning

If the stems get leggy, the plant should be cut back to a leaf scar (an obvious line on the stem where old leaves were previously attached. This will encourage branching and bushy growth. Cut sections of the plant (including leaves) are easily rooted and will grow quite quickly into new plants

Feeding

A little dilute fertilizer can be added to the water occasionally to maintain a deep green colour

Pest & Diseases

Usually untroubled by pests. Any mealybugs or scale insects shouldbe physically removed as soon as they are spotted.
