Care and Propagation Information

General care for Crassula arborescens undulatifolia “Ripple Jade”

“Ripple Jade” is a succulent shrub that is perfect in the home or office. It flowers with white blossoms in the Spring. When it is “happily stressed,” the leaves have a deep red color around the edges.

Watering

Crassula arborescens undulatifolia has typical watering needs for a succulent. It’s best to use the “soak and dry” method, and allow the soil to dry out completely between waterings.

Where to Plant

How to Propagate Crassula arborescens undulatifolia “Ripple Jade”

Crassula arborescens undulatifolia “Ripple Jade” can be propagated from leaves or offsets.

Leaves

When taking a leaf for propagation, gently twist the leaf from the stem. Be sure that the leaf you get is a “clean pull,” where no part of the leaf is left on the stem. This will give you a better chance of a successful propagation.

Allow the leaf to callous over for a day or two before placing it on well-draining soil.

Offsets

“Ripple Jade” will produce small rosette offsets. Cut the offsets off from the main stem with a sharp, sterile knife or scissors. Allow the offsets to dry for one to two days before laying on well-draining soil.
