Sinocrassula is a genus from the family of the thick leafed plants (Crassulaecae) and originates mainly from southern China. The rosette-forming leaves of the plant are thick, fleshy and short-haired.
The flowers appear on stems in late summer to autumn and are whitish to pink with reddish spots. The mother plant dies after flowering, but before that it forms daughter rosettes to ensure further offspring.
A bright, sunny location is recommended for Sinocrassula.
A mixture of cactus and succulent soil and mineral parts is suitable as substrate.
As with most succulents, watering should be moderate and the plant cannot tolerate stagnant moisture, so excess water should be able to drain off well.
Fertilizing can be done about once every two months, i.e. about every eight weeks.
In summer, the succulents can be placed outside after they have gradually become acclimatised to direct sunlight. However, you should bring them back into the house at temperatures below 10°C.
In winter the temperature should be around 10°C. Fertilization is no longer used, watering is reduced.
Sinocrassula is slightly poisonous, therefore no guarantee can be given for its compatibility with animals.
