Get ready to smarten up your plant collection with a unique and eye-catching trailing succulent addition - the Huernia procumbens 'Crested,' a vibrant variety of the Huernia procumbens,  is a fascinating succulent that is native to South Africa.  

The crested variety of Huernia procumbens is a small, low-growing succulent plant that forms a mat of fleshy, green leaves that are covered in tiny hairs. Its leaves are triangular in shape and have a distinctive crested pattern of raised veins that give them a textured appearance. Its elongated stem which is in a sprawling manner can grow up to 6 inches tall and 12 inches wide. Its size makes it an ideal succulent for small spaces or for optimal growing conditions.  

This Huernia plant produces small, star-shaped flowers in the summer that are yellow or reddish-brown in color and have a strong, unpleasant odor that attracts flies. The flowers usually last for a few days before falling off, and this crested variety may produce several blooms throughout the blooming season. 

To care for the Crested Huernia Procumbens, it is important to provide it with well-draining soil and a pot with drainage holes to prevent water from accumulating around the roots. It prefers bright sunlight for at least 4-6 hours daily but can also tolerate some direct sunlight. This Huernia should be watered sparingly, allowing the soil to dry out completely between waterings. Overwatering can cause the plant to rot, so it is important to be careful not to water it too often. It can also benefit from occasional fertilization with a balanced natural fertilizer (NPK) with a ratio of 5-10-5 during the growing season in the spring. 

Propagation of the Crested succulent can be done by stem cuttings or by division. This succulent is relatively low-maintenance and can be grown indoors or outdoors in warm, dry climates in USDA zones 9-11. However, it is important to protect it from frost and extreme temperatures, as this can damage or kill the Huernia plants.
