Watering Needs 

Although crassula ovata Hobbit is commonly associated with desert environments, some varieties, such as hobbit jade plants, prefer to be watered using the "soak and dry" technique. This involves thoroughly watering the jade hobbit plant before allowing it to dry out between watering sessions completely. Both potted and outdoor variegated jade hobbit plants should receive a deep soak once or twice a month during their growth periods, ensuring proper drainage so that the roots don't become waterlogged.  

Avoid watering your outdoor Crassula species when it's raining or during the winter months. 

Light Requirements 

Providing enough light for these desert jade hobbit plant (Crassula ovata Hobbit) succulents is one of the most important aspects of their care. It is important to grow your jade plants in areas that receive at least 4-6 hours of bright, indirect light daily to keep them happy. Under bright sunlight, bright red margins appear on leaves that are up to 2 inches long. 

If indoors, place your Crassula ovata hobbit directly in front of a west- or south-facing window. If they don't receive enough light, their stems may grow leggy and become paler, and their spines will shorten. So, make your jade hobbit plant happy and give it plenty of light. 

Optimal Soil & Fertilizer Needs 

The hobbit jade plants prefer sandy, well-drained soil, as excess moisture can promote root and stem rot. Planet Desert specializes in succulents and has a specialized succulent potting soil that includes an organic substrate with mycorrhizae to help with the growth of a healthy root system to help your Crassula ovata hobbit jade succulents thrive.

When it comes to fertilizing your jade hobbit plant, organic fertilizers with an equal mixture of 5-10-5 (NPK) also last longer and keep your soil alive by adding other beneficial compounds and microbes that encourage your Crassula ovata Hobbit health and nutrient absorption. So, skip those harsh chemicals and give your hobbit jade succulent some love with some awesome organic fertilizer!
