Crassula ovata ‘Minima’, also known as Dwarf Jade, is a delightful cultivar of the succulent Jade. Over time, this plant develops thick tree-like branches adorned with fleshy, glossy, and smooth jade green leaves. In well-lit areas, the leaves may display a subtle red tinge. It is highly resilient and often pruned as a bonsai and finds its place as an indoor plant in courtyards and pots. Under favourable conditions, the Crassula may produce occasional flowers, adding to its appeal.

Jade plants benefit from four to six hours of direct sunlight for optimal growth if grown outdoors. When kept as a houseplant, placing it in a southern window with four or more hours of direct sunlight is ideal. However, Jade plants can tolerate lower light levels, especially variegated varieties that thrive well in bright indirect light.
Jade Plants will require more watering during the Summer months, but in moderate amounts.
A well-draining soil is best for Crassula ovata ‘Minima’.
Crassula ovata ‘Minima’ will thrive with an application of an All Purpose, Slow-Release fertiliser every 9-12 months.
