Crassula Muscosa is a succulent, belonging to the family of Crassulaceae and are native to South Africa. They are commonly known as Princess pine. The Princess pine has beautiful and interesting foliage which is sure to add a quirky twist to your garden. However, it is prone to certain typical diseases and thus requires special attention in that field

Lighting

The Princess pine has no problem with bright and direct sunlight. They can even tolerate extreme temperature upto -6 degrees Celsius.

During very hot summers, the plant might need to be kept in partial shade.

Watering

Overwatering is very harmful, even fatal to the crassulas. They prefer to be watered less rather than be more. Care should be taken that these succulents are not made to sit in water or that the soil is not waterlogged. The plants should only be watered when the soil is completely dry.

Soil

These succulents are not very fussy about the soil as long as it has good drainage properties. A succulent mix of appropriate drainage properties is ideal. The pH should be maintained at 6 which is slightly acidic.

Fertilizer

During the growing season, the plants should be fed with a controlled release fertilizer. They can be fed weekly with a weak liquid solution. When the plant is mature, a balanced 20-20-20 fertilizer at 1/4th strength can be given to the plants.

Foliage

Princess Pines are succulent plants. They have small light green leaves which are densely packed around a thin stem to form a square structure. The flowers are tiny and yellow-green in colour.

Size

The plant grows into a shrub or a bush depending on the climate in which it is grown. They usually grow to a height of 30 cm.

Diseases

These plants are quite vulnerable to some typical diseases like mealybug invasions and fungal diseases. Overwatering may cause the roots to rot.

Repotting

The plants should be repotted during the warm season. It should be made sure that the soil is dry while repotting the plant. Any old soil must be shaken off the roots before planting the plant in a new pot. Any dry or damaged roots should also be discarded in the process.

Benefits

These plants are mainly used for ornamental purposes.
