The Crassula (Pangolin) succulent is a unique and captivating plant that has been around for centuries. It is native to South Africa, where it grows in rocky, arid climates. Its thick, fleshy leaves are arranged in an overlapping pattern that resembles the scales of a pangolin – hence its name. The Crassula Pangolin typically grows to about 12 inches tall and 8 inches wide, with an upright growth habit. Its leaves are thick and fleshy, with a gray-green coloration and a smooth texture. They can range from 1-2 inches long and 0.5-1 inch wide. The flowers of this succulent are small white or pink star-shaped blooms that appear during the springtime months. In terms of care requirements, the Crassula Pangolin prefers bright indirect sunlight and well-draining soil with occasional watering when the soil is dry to the touch. It also benefits from regular fertilization during its growing season (spring through fall). This succulent is relatively easy to care for as long as it’s given adequate light and water; however, it can be prone to rot if overwatered or kept in too much shade. Throughout history, this unique succulent has been used for both ornamental purposes as well as medicinal remedies by indigenous peoples in South Africa. Today, it continues to be popular among gardeners due to its attractive appearance and ease of care requirements.
The Crassula (Pangolin) succulent is a beautiful and hardy plant that does best in bright indirect light. It can tolerate direct sunlight for short periods of time, but it should be protected from intense midday sun. For optimal growth, the plant should receive several hours of medium to low light each day.
The ideal soil for the Crassula (Pangolin) succulent is a well-draining, sandy loam. It should contain a mix of organic matter such as compost or peat moss, and coarse sand or perlite to help with drainage. The soil should also be slightly acidic, with a pH between 6.0 and 7.5. Lastly, make sure to water the plant deeply but infrequently to avoid root rot.
The Crassula (Pangolin) succulent is a low-maintenance plant that does best with infrequent watering. It prefers to dry out completely between waterings, so it's best to wait until the soil is dry to the touch before watering. Water thoroughly when you do water, and make sure any excess moisture drains away quickly.
The ideal humidity conditions for the Crassula (Pangolin) succulent are low to moderate. It prefers a dry environment, so you should avoid misting it or placing it in an overly humid room. The best way to provide adequate humidity is by placing the plant on a tray of pebbles and water, making sure that the pot isn't sitting directly in the water. This will help keep the air around your plant slightly more humid without causing root rot.
