Welcome to the world of Ripple jade, also known as Crassula arborescens 'Undulatifolia' - a stunning perennial, evergreen succulent that's bound to leave you in awe and a vibrant member of the Crassula genus! This ripple jade succulent is like no other! Its thin, wavy leaves make it the perfect addition to any arrangement that needs a little extra pizzazz.  

Let me tell you, when given room to grow, this stunning crassula arborescens will form a dense and mounding shrub up to 4 feet tall! With some good pruning skills, you can turn your ripple jade into an adorable bonsai-like masterpiece. Now, while flowers are quite rare on this jade plant, don't count it out just yet because, in late winter, it can produce clusters of white, pink star-shaped blooms that'll leave your jaw hanging.  

It grows in large numbers on rocky slopes in South Africa in the wild; however, it also works as an attractive landscaping shrub in frost-free climates and as a houseplant. 

So, if you're looking for something unique and exciting to add to your succulent collection or arrangement - look no further than the ripple jade! 

Watering Needs 

The ripple jade succulent is a species that requires minimal watering. It's important to only water them when the soil has dried out, as overwatering can cause root rot. Succulents, including this ripple jade crassula, are prone to rot if their roots are constantly submerged in moisture.  

As a drought-tolerant plant, the Crassula arborescens plant has developed an effective mechanism for storing water in its leaves. Oftentimes, people worry about underwatering their plants when they're actually giving them too much water - succulents, in particular, don't thrive well in damp soil, which can lead to root problems. 

Light Requirements 

The ripple jade can withstand full sun, but it prefers to grow in areas with some partial shade. Learn to adjust your ripple jade succulent to avoid burns if the location where you have the plant is exposed to a lot of sunlight. Gradually increase the exposure until it can handle the full sun. 

It's critical to remember that during a heatwave or periods of extreme heat, your Crassula arborescens undulatifolia could still sustain sun damage or get sunburned. In this situation, you can protect the plant by moving it indoors or to a shaded area. 

Optimal Soil & Fertilizer Needs 

The ripple jade favors very airy, sandy soil that drains well. Planting them in ordinary soil will result in compacted roots, stunted growth, and root rot. Instead, make or buy a well-draining potting mix, or ideally, use our specialized potting mix that contains over-organic mycorrhizae to promote the development of a strong root system that helps your succulent to thrive.  

Organic fertilizers equal to 5-10-5 (NPK) also last longer and keep your soil alive by adding other beneficial compounds and microbes that encourage plant health and nutrient absorption. So, skip those harsh chemicals and give your succulent some love with some awesome organic fertilizer! 

Hardiness Zones & More 

Typically grown in hot, arid desert regions, the ripple jade succulents thrive indoors in warm, dry surroundings. If you live in USDA regions 9 to 11, you can also grow these succulents Crassula arborescens outdoors year-round, but they are not cold- or frost-tolerant, so you should plant them indoors or put them in a pot and move them indoors during the winter if you live outside of these regions.  

Keep your crassula jade plant away from cold, drafty windows and air vents if you are growing it indoors in a cold climate. 

Be sure to add Crassula arborescens 'Undulatifolia’ to your home or garden and enjoy its low maintenance care while admiring its impressive display year after year.

Pests & Common Problems of Ripple Jade
