|Description||The Crassula muscosa is a succulent plant native to South Africa and Namibia that belongs to the family of Crassulaceae and to the genus Crassula. It is commonly called Watch Chain Plant, Rat Tail Plant, and others as a reference to its appearance.crassula Muscosa needs sufficient scattered light which should be bright and transparent. If there is not sufficient sunlight for a long time, the plant will be spindling, the tissue will become brittle, and the original color will fade slowly, as a result, the plant will grow into a loose shape, the color will turn green and yellow, and the resistance will decline. Soil is very important for the growth of crassula Muscosa which must be loose and ventilated. crassula Muscosa doesn’t need much water. In fact, it is not recommended to water at a fixed time, but more attention should be paid to the state of succulent plant and specific weather conditions. in hot weather or low temperature, succulent plant will enter dormancy. In such period, watering should be reduced a little, usually once 1-2 weeks. Since the growth of succulent plant is basically stagnant when it is in dormancy, its absorption of water and nutrients is quite slow. At the same time, it is necessary to keep the environment dry and ventilated. Frequent watering can cause succulent plant to die due to black rot. Fertilize your Watch Chain Plant in the spring and summer with a succulent fertilizer or a high-potassium fertilizer diluted to half strength. Don’t fertilize in the winter since the plant is dormant. Crassula muscosa is very easy to propagate from cuttings. Just take a stem cutting that has healthy, thick leaves on it.|
