Plant Care

BOTANICAL NAME:  Crassula perforate

COMMON NAME: String of Buttons, necklace vine plant, pagoda plant

ORIGIN: Arid soil and rocky slopes of South Africa

GOOD FOR: Beginner plant parents  

HEIGHT: Grows up to 18” tall 

LIGHT: Bright, indirect light will help keep the brilliance of the coloring in the leaves.  

WINDOW PREFERENCE: South facing windows are best.

WATER: These plants are succulents, so over watering can become a major issue. Consider the soak and dry method of watering to minimize that risk.  Soak and dry method require soaking the plant until water runs out of the bottom of the pot and soil is fully moist. Do not water again until soil is fully dry.

HUMIDITY: Basic household humidity. 

TEMPERATURE: Prefers to be between 60-70 degrees. Keep away from drafts and heat vents.

SOIL / REPOTTING:  We recommend using a succulent or cactus potting mix when repotting or add perlite and sand to your normal potting mix. Repot once the roots fill the currently container. They have a strong root system and grow quickly, so this may need a yearly repot. 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: Light feeding in the spring, but the plant is not used to having nutrient rich soil. We recommend using Joyful Dirt Succulent Plant Food. Stop feeding in fall and winter due to slower growth and dormancy.

PRUNING: Prune to manage the length of each stem, throughout the year.

PESTS: Mealybugs and fungal issues

TOXICITY: Non-toxic 

ANGRY PLANT PROBLEMS: This hardy plant has few issues other than over watering, which can cause root rot.
