Succulous Crassula Browniana, is native to southern Africa. Its leaves grow opposite, which is fleshy and the leaf edge has even point. Under sufficient sunlight, the leaves will become plump and full, the whole leaf covered with fine down, grow fat, hairy, very lovely. Flowers have five petals, white in color. Let's take a look at how Crassula Browniana is raised.
Succulent Crassula Browniana care is also relatively simple. crassula browniana needs sufficient sunshine and cool, dry environment, tolerance of semi-shade, afraid of waterflood, avoid hot and humid. It has the habit of growing in the cold season and hibernating in high temperature in summer. crassula browniana is not strict with the soil, but peat and coarse sand to keep the water permeable.
The growing season of Crassula Browniana is from September to June of each year (the growing season has its own length because of the different environments of the Flower friends). If the plants are easy to grow in the absence of light, the distance between the leaves will be longer, which makes the plant shape lose, the stems become very weak, the leaves will also be elongated and the color will become lighter. On the other hand, plants that grow in sunny places are short and strong, with relatively compact leaves between them, and Crassula Browniana doesn't grow too slowly.
During the Crassula Browniana growth period, we need to keep the soil micro wet, and avoid water. Crassula Browniana in the basin soil dry condition can withstand the low temperature of -2 ℃ or so, is the indoor temperature, not open air. The whole winter basically cut off water, below 5 degrees will begin to cut off water slowly. When the temperature exceeds 35℃ in summer, the growth of the whole plant basically stops. At this time it should be reduced watering, to prevent excessive moisture caused by the basin soil root rot. And strengthen ventilated, appropriate shade, avoid the strong sunlight, the whole summer such basic maintenance, is worthy of that summer, water is not the entire season, is the only tiny amounts of water, or leaflets of easy to dry, water it only at the edge of the basin about 2-4 times a month, 7-9 o 'clock in the evening feed water, when the sun is setting, will not affect the roots of plants.
Crassula Browniana is cultivated to avoid long-term rain exposure and to prevent root damage, yellowing and rot of the branches. Because the growth of Crassula Browniana is relatively fast, 1-2 years for a basin is about the same, in the early spring before the first watering for a basin.
Crassula Browniana has branches, and reproduction can be decapitated for cuttings and splitters. Cuttings are very simple. You can take healthy old branches and dry them in slightly wet sand. More than 20 days of cool ventilation basic root. Do not water when cutting, or easy to rot stems. Cuttings should choose in spring and autumn.
