The Crassula ovata 'Sunset' is a popular houseplant that originally comes from South Africa. This plant belongs to the succulent family, also known as Crassulaceae. In its natural habitat, the plant grows in rocky areas where it is well adapted to dry conditions.
The Crassula ovata 'Sunset' is known for its fleshy, glossy leaves that range from green to red, depending on the amount of sunlight they receive. This plant can grow to a height of 60-90 cm and has a wide, bushy growth. The ovata 'Sunset' blooms in late winter or early spring, producing small, star-shaped flowers that are often white or light pink.
Taking care of the Crassula ovata 'Sunset' requires little effort. The plant prefers bright, indirect light and can even tolerate some direct sunshine. It is tolerant to periods of drought and therefore requires well-draining soil and only occasional watering, usually once every two to three weeks. Over-watering can lead to root rot, a common problem with succulents, so it's important to let the soil dry out completely between watering.
