Crassula Columella

Endemic to South Africa, Crassula columella is a fascinating succulent plant that grows very slowly and compact (The Latin name means “pillar” or "little column" and no doubt is rightly given). It makes lovely shaped pagoda-like columns that feel velvety soft. Actually the columns are very densely packed leaves.
The stems are completely coated by the close-pressed leaves that form a 4-angled fat, compact, velvety column 7-20 mm in diameter and up to 80(-150) mm in height
Blooming season: Autumn (In habitat February to April).
Crassula columella are quite smart for the extremely dry circumstances where these plants grow. But not so difficult to grow if you remember not to over-water in the Summer when they're taking their rest. They can grow easily on window sills, verandas and in miniature succulent gardens where they are happy to share their habitat with other smaller succulent plants, or in outdoor rockeries. They are spring and autumn grower (summer dormant).
For best results, use a shallow pot.
Watering: Winter grower, provide some water all year around, in the wild most of the growth occurs during spring and autumn- recommend water less in summer. During the winter months, water only when the soil becomes completely dry.
