Crassula ovata variegata is a bold white and green variegated shrub type of succulent plant, aka ‘Tricolor’. With this type of fast-growing tree-shaped succulent, you could grow your own perfect little bonsai tree!
This listing is for two 2-3” cuttings of bright and striking variegated type of Crassula ovata (commonly known as ‘Variegated Jade Tree’). This plant has bold variegated stripes and gets bright pink edges on its leaves when it receives full sun.
Cuttings will have approximately 1/4” wide stems, 2-3” tall. This succulent plant is often used for bonsai because it can easily be kept smaller when root bound in a bonsai pot, and it is a fast grower, so you can see changes and have more bonsai fun than with some other slower-growing bonsai trees.
The green and white coloration makes this plant an beautiful addition to Christmas centerpieces, arrangements, wreaths and hostess gifts. This is a live plant that ships bare root. The plant for sale is cuttings of the plant shown in the picture.
Plant the cuttings in cactus soil and wait a week or more before watering regularly. Make sure the cut ends are completely dried, or calloused, over before putting them in soil. Keep out of direct sunlight for a few weeks and then gradually increase sun exposure. Immediate sun exposure can cause sunburn.
