Care and Propagation Information
General Care for Crassula ‘Springtime’
Crassula ‘Springtime’ is a great succulent for container gardens. It can be added as filler, where it grows slowly upwards until the weight of the rosettes is too much for it, and it begins to trail. Then it adds perfect “spiller” to your arrangements.
Crassula ‘Springtime’ 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
Crassula ‘Springtime’ is not cold hardy, so if you live in a zone that gets colder than 30° F (-1.1° C), it’s best to plant this succulent in a container that can be brought indoors. It does well in full to partial sun.
Plant in an area of your garden that gets 6 hours of sunlight a day. If planting indoors, place in a room that gets a lot of sunlight, such as near a southern-facing window (if you’re in the Northern Hemisphere).

How to Propagate Crassula ‘Springtime’
Crassula ‘Springtime’ may be a slow grower, but you can easily propagate it from leaves and cuttings.
Propagating ‘Springtime’ from leaves is easy! Simply choose a firm, healthy leaf. Remove it from the main plant by gently twisting the leaf from the stem. Be sure not to leave any of the leaf on the stem (if you take a bit of the stem with the leaf, that’s fine, too!).
Allow the leaf to callous over for several days, and then lay on well-draining soil. Water whenever the soil has dried completely. After roots and a rosette have appeared, and the mother leaf has withered away, plant the new growth.
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.
