Crassula ‘Emerald’ is a hybrid between Crassula barklyi and C. susannae. Small perennial forming very tight clumps. Tiny white flowers throughout winter.
It grows in bright green (hence the name) pillars, a bit comparable to those of Crassula ‘Ivory Pagoda’, but smaller. Slowly new shoots will appear at the base of the plant, but also the growing tip can split up. Undeep rooting. Avoid full sun during hot summer afternoons. This ‘Emerald’ is definitely not the most easy Crassula: rotting is the biggest danger. Therefore you should water it only from below, so keep the lowest 3/4 part of the pot in the water during 10-20 seconds (depending on how fast your soil mix absorbs the water), so that the upper centimeter of the soil keeps dry all the time. Watering once a month from March until and including September is sufficient for this beautiful Crassula cultivar.
