Plant Care

BOTANICAL NAME: Crassula ovata 'Gollum'

COMMON NAME: Gollum Jade, Trumpet Jade, Finger Jade, Succulent Spoon Jade

ORIGIN: Eastern Cape provinces of South Africa

GOOD FOR: Beginner plant parents

HEIGHT: 3’ tall, 2’ wide

LIGHT: Bright light. Some varieties will develop a red edge on their leaves when exposed to bright light conditions.

WINDOW PREFERENCE: South or west windows work best

WATER: Succulents have the ability to store water in its leaves, stems and roots. Water thoroughly once the soil dries out completely. The preferred method of watering succulents, in order to keep water from their delicate leaves, is to sit the pot in 2 inches of water and let the soil soak up the water until the top becomes moist. Do not let the roots sit in water, longer than it takes to moisten the soil mixture. If watering with a can, be careful not to wet the leaves or stems, as this can cause discoloration or rotting.  In lower light conditions, or in the winter months when not actively growing, you can wait for the soil to dry out completely before watering again.  

HUMIDITY: Regular household humidity.

TEMPERATURE: Prefers to be between 75-80 degrees. Keep away from drafts and heat vents.

SOIL / REPOTTING: Well-draining, cactus soil. Repot once the roots grow out of the bottom of the pot. Make sure the soil is dry before repotting. Repotting in warmer months will be more successful. Let the soil dry out completely, then gently remove from the current pot. Knock away soil from the roots, and place in a new pot, 1 size larger. Make sure to spread out the roots then add soil. Allow the plant to rest for a week before giving any water.

PLANT FOOD: Feed monthly during the spring months April and May, and every 2 weeks between June and August.  We recommend using Joyful Dirt Succulent Plant Food. Stop feeding in fall and winter due to slower growth and dormancy.

PRUNING: Prune stems that have lost leaves, to rejuvenate and stimulate new growth.


PESTS: Mealybugs, Spider Mite and Scale

TOXICITY: Toxic

ANGRY PLANT PROBLEMS: Shriveled leaves - needs water. Mushy stems or leaves falling off - Too much water. Allow the soil to dry out before watering the plant again.
