Crassula ovata Gollum (Gollum Jade)

This product is currently out of stock and unavailable.

SKU: 8000000000001105 Category:


This is a fun and fashionable variety of Crassula. It is smaller and more compact than the standard variety and is very easy to care for. Its leaves are a fascinating slender, tubular shape, ending in red tips that look like suction cups.

The common names for this succulent are a great blend of fantasy sci-fi: Gollum Jade, Trumpet Jade, ET’s Fingers and Hobbit’s Pipe Jade. Once established as a mature plant, the stems become thick and form intricate shapes.

Supplied in 6cm and 9cm growers pots

Plant Care Tips:

Light: Crassula ovata Gollum prefers bright, indirect sunlight, though a few hours of direct sunlight a day would not go amiss. It will tolerate some degree of shade but may appear less full and vibrant.

Water: This plant likes to be well-watered. Allow the soil to dry out before watering again to avoid overwatering. Crassula do not like having their roots sitting in water.

Feed: During spring and summer provide a weak solution of liquid fertiliser once a month.

Toxicity: This plant is known to be poisonous to pets, therefore please keep away from animals.

Please note: the pot in the photograph is not supplied with the plant (which is sent out in a simple nursery pot). They do however make excellent potted plants and, if you wish to pot yours up, we do have a wide range of pots on our website to choose from.

Please note: images show how this plant may look at various stages of maturity. The size you choose may look different.
