Crassula ovata "Gollum", also known as Horn Tree or Trumpet Jade, 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.

Habitat Conditions

This is a plant from semi-arid open ground in Southern Africa. It is succulent and needs little in the way of water. Like most succulents, this species uses crassulacean acid metabolism (named after this genus of plants) as a way to prevent drying out during the day. the pores on its leaves can only open at night, so a period of darkness is required every day for this species to thrive.

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.
