Growing Cresting Succulents
Since it is unusual for cresting succulents to occur, they’re considered rare or unique. They are more valuable than a traditional succulent, as reflected by online prices. However, there are plenty of them for sale, so possibly we should just call them unusual.
Like variegated succulents, crested succulents arise from a genetic mutation that occurs during cell division. During division, multiple growing points are created, which crowd and push against each other. This results in unique, curved and twisted shapes forming that look very different from normal plants.
The main purpose of placing pebbles on the bottom of the potted succulent plant is to enhance drainage. Succulents and cacti naturally grow in sandy soils that drain quickly. Succulent roots should never be left in wet soil. The rocks help move water through the soil to prevent the roots from rotting.
Hardy succulents: Tolerate frost and can stay outdoors through below-freezing temperatures. They’re ideal for year-round, outdoor growing. In fact, hardy succulents grow better outdoors than in! Soft varieties: Not frost-tolerant.
Cold hardy succulents are those that are tolerant of growing in temperatures that are freezing and below. Like soft succulents, these plants store water in their leaves and need much less watering than traditional plants and flowers.
