How to sow seeds of Crassula

Sow the seeds, which are light brown and very fine, on a fine sandy medium. DO NOT cover the seeds.   Water from below by placing the trays in a drip tray to allow water to be soaked up by the soil, and then remove the tray and let it drain. The following medium usually works well with most succulents:

  • 4 parts coarse river sand
  • 4 parts fine river sand
  • 1 part sieved well-rotted compost.
  • 1 part perlite
  • 1 part vermiculite

Always treat seeds with a pre-emergence fungicide as seedlings often suffer from fungal diseases which causes them to die rapidly after germination.
