Jade Plant Variegated
Crassula ovata 'Tricolor', aka Crassula ovata 'Variegata' or the Variegated Jade Plant, is a succulent shrub native to the southern coast of Africa. Just like its sister plant, the classic Jade Plant, it has thick leaves and stems that store water – a necessary resource in hot desert plains. This variety, however, has green leaves with cream variegation, a stunning pink border can even develop when placed in bright light.
They enjoy some direct sun, but they'll also do well in bright, indirect light. It is best to place this plant somewhere where it will receive some nice morning sun, or a couple hours of afternoon sun, and then indirect light the rest of the day.
They will do best in bright light. A nice bright place inside your home would be on the window sill or a stool that is right next to a window, either with or without blinds, depending on if the plant can handle sun. Remember that plants will grow based on how much light they receive.
They like the soil to be completely dry before the next watering. This can take up to 4 weeks in an average home environment but it will vary depending on the time of year, your environment and lighting conditions. For them, it's always safer to underwater or water when you see signs of lack of water (i.e. wrinkly or soft leaves). Water a little more often in the warmer months.
They can live in any average home humidity condition and are fairly hardy.
As with all succulents, overwatering is sure to be fatal, so err on the side of too dry rather than too wet. Never let your jade plant sit in water. If you are training your jade to go in full sun, make environmental changes gradually so as not to burn the leaves.
The plant comes with a default nursery pot. The nursery pot is usually 0.5" - 1" smaller than stated to fit into the same size decorative pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.
As with all living things, no two plants are alike. There is some natural variation in size, shape, and characteristics. We make every effort to bring you a plant that as closely as possible matches the plant as it appears on our website, in the size you have chosen, and have a good potential to happily grow in your home.
