Like other succulents, Ovata thrives in dry soil. You need to water it when the soil is dry during the growing phase. Do not allow water to sit on the pot. Consider watering it once every 7-10 days.
Crassula Ovata is not a heavy feeder. You need to fertilize it with cacti or succulent specified fertilizers. Alternatively, use a diluted standard houseplant fertilizer. Also, consider feeding the plant once per month.
Ovata will flourish when it has access to adequate light. Allow your plant to enjoy morning sunlight to retain its shiny red color on the leaves. However, do not expose them to the afternoon sun as it can scorch your plant leaves.
The ideal temperature range for Ovata is between 15.5°C and 24°C. Any temperature below 10˚C will hurt or kill your plant.
Crassula Ovata is a slow-growing and root-bound plant meaning it will not need regular repotting. However, you repot the plant when the soil needs renewing or outgrows the current pot.
