crassula “springtime” is a cultivar, based on c. rupestris. it’s available with green and silver leaves and flowering in pink.
crassula “springtime” likes a bright position with some morning- and/or evening sun. a half shaded place will be tolerated. afternoon sun and high heat in summer can cause leaf drop.
the soil should be well drained. a regular cactus mix or a mix between standard potting soil, coarse sand and grit (2:1:1) can be used.
drench the soil well, water flowing out of the pot’s hole should be removed after a few minutes. wet legs can cause root rot. before watering next allow to dry.
in spring and summer a half diluted cactus fertilizer can be given monthly and every six to eight weeks in fall/winter (if placed at room temperature).
crassula “springtime” can be grown at room temperature the year round and needs a winter minimum of 15 °c/59 °f. at this temperature range it has to be kept nearly dry and must not be fed.
