Crassula Ovata (Hobbit)


Hobbit is a larger leafed succulent shrub that can sometimes be mistaken for Gollum Jade (Crassula Ovata Gollum). To differentiate it from Gollum observe the leaf structure, the leaves are more spoon shaped as apposed to tubular. In growing season (winter) it can develop more golden tones around the edges of the leaves along with its red tips that only develop when the weather starts cooling (Autumn through to Spring). 

 It grows up to 90cm tall and 60cm wide with delicate white and pinkish inflorescence. Water regularly from Spring to Autumn but allow the soil to dry out before watering again.
