Crassula Perforata * String of Buttons Plant * Necklace Vine Succulent * 5 Seeds *
THIS LISTING IS FOR 5 SEEDS OF CRASSULA PERFORATA Crassula perforata is a small shrubby and sprawling succulent up to 18 inches (45 cm) tall. The stem is erect, fleshy, later prostrate and woody. Short, broad ovate, opposite, gray-green leaves edged in pink color with small whitish or pink dots on the margin, up to 0.8 inch (2 cm) long and up to 0.5 inch (13 mm) wide. The flowers are very small, star-shaped and white in color. USDA hardiness zone 9a to 11b: from 20 °F (−6.7 °C) to 50 °F (+10 °C). Crassula are easy to grow, but they are susceptible to mealy bugs and fungal diseases. As with all succulents, overwatering is sure to be fatal, so err on the side of too dry rather than too wet. Never let your Crassula sit in water. If you water from beneath by letting the plant sit in a saucer of water, make sure to pour off any excess water after a few minutes. Crassula perforata - String of Buttons: Attractive plant, similar to Socialis (Ring Plant) but with smaller and tighter leaves. The leaves are pale green in color with bright rosy pink edges. The leaves grow in a spiral around the stem. Can get to 10 inches if left to grow and will form small colonies. Tender soft succulent - will not tolerate frost. The 'String of Buttons' or 'Necklace Vine' (Crassula perforata) is a small, "stacked" and compact scrambling succulent shrublet that stays relatively low and clumps readily. It is up to 45 cm tall or more, with secondary branches rising nearly vertically bearing subdistant or distant leaf pairs, that are congested at the leaf tips. It blooms with inconspicuous pale yellow flowers in spring. The leaf margins often have reddish tinges and is quite showy. This plant is called Necklace Vine because the leaves can be rotated around on the stem like beads on a string (this unfortunately to the detriment of the plant as this breaks the petiole, the leaf connection to the stem) or String of Buttons because the opposing pairs of lower cordate leaves appear threaded onto the stems and also Pagoda plant because of the regular arrangement of the leaves at the branch tip.
