Crassula streyii, native to South Africa forms a subshrub of shiny deep forest green leaves patterned with lighter veining. The undersides of the leaves and stems are a shiny burgundy. Star-shaped satiny white flowers appear in late winter. Requires porous soil with excellent drainage. Grows in rocky quartz beds in native habitat. Water thoroughly when soil is dry. Water with caution in winter, as the plant can lose its roots if the soil stays cold and wet for extended periods. Protect from frost. They like filtered light. The leaves are green on top and mauve on the underside. Like most crassulas, they are winter growers and intolerant of frost. Offer light water in summer. If outdoors, fall through winter, water once a month or allow the rain to water your plants. It is best not to let them get too leggy. Propogate by cuttings. Cutting tops make new plants and parent plants fuller.
