The Crassula (Morgan's Beauty) succulent is a stunningly beautiful plant native to South Africa. It is a member of the Crassulaceae family, and is closely related to other popular succulents such as jade plants and kalanchoes. This unique succulent has an upright growth habit, with stems that can reach up to three feet in height. Its thick, fleshy leaves are oval-shaped and grow in opposite pairs along the stem. The leaves are a vibrant green color, with pinkish-red tips that become more pronounced during times of drought or stress. In late spring or early summer, the Morgan's Beauty will produce clusters of small white flowers on long stalks above the foliage. These flowers have five petals each and are very fragrant, making them a favorite among gardeners and pollinators alike. When it comes to care requirements, this hardy succulent is relatively easy to maintain. It prefers well-draining soil and plenty of sunlight but can tolerate some shade as well. Water sparingly; allowing the soil to dry out completely between waterings will help prevent root rot or fungal diseases from developing. The Morgan's Beauty has been cultivated for centuries by gardeners around the world who appreciate its unique beauty and low maintenance needs. With its striking foliage and sweetly scented blooms, it makes an excellent addition to any indoor or outdoor space!
The Crassula (Morgan's Beauty) succulent requires bright indirect light for optimal growth. It should not be placed in direct sunlight, as this can cause the leaves to burn. For best results, place it in a spot that receives several hours of bright, indirect light each day. If you cannot provide enough natural light, you can supplement with a grow light set to medium or low intensity.
The Crassula (Morgan's Beauty) succulent requires well-draining soil that is slightly acidic with a pH of 6.0 to 7.5. The soil should be loose and light, allowing for plenty of air circulation around the roots. For best results, mix in some organic matter such as compost or peat moss to provide extra nutrients and moisture retention.
The Crassula (Morgan's Beauty) succulent is a drought-tolerant plant that prefers to be watered infrequently. It should be watered thoroughly when the soil has dried out completely, and then allowed to dry out again before being watered again. This usually works out to about once every two weeks during the growing season, and once a month during the winter months.
The ideal humidity conditions for the Crassula (Morgan's Beauty) succulent is around 40-50%. This is a relatively low humidity level, so it's important to keep an eye on your plant and make sure that it doesn't get too dry. If you notice that the leaves are starting to wrinkle or curl, you can increase the humidity levels by misting the leaves with water or using a humidifier.
