Description


If you’re a fan of indoor succulents, this unusual Crassula marnieriana Hottentot may intrigue you. Also known as the Jade Necklace Vine as its worm-shaped strings of thickly compacted leaves trail over the edges of the pot.


Though not tolerant of scorching sunlight, moderate sunshine stimulates this Crassula to produce attractive red edging on the grey-green leaves. This small ornamental succulent grows to about 20cm (8in) in height. The Jade Necklace Vine looks superb when displayed in hanging pot or ornamental planter.

Water the plant generously, then leave it until the soil becomes dry. Avoid leaving a Jade Necklace Vine sitting in pooled water. Occasional feeding with a diluted liquid fertiliser solution will help to keep this succulent healthy.
