description for "Cacti and Succulents: Crassula 'Moonglow'"

Crassula 'Moonglow' is considered a hybrid between Crassula deceptor v. arta and Crassula falcata. Forms very fleshy gray leaves in opposing ranks on an upright column. Leaves are densely covered with short "hairs" or "fuzz". Tiny apricot flowers in masses during winter and spring months. Great for windowsill culture or in rock gardens. Crassulas require very porous soil with excellent drainage. In habitat, usually grow in rocky quartz fields. Bright, filtered light and ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Water with caution in winter, as the plant can lose its roots if the soil stays cold and wet for extended periods. Summer dormant. Protect from frost to prevent scarring.
