Crassula 'Tarantula' is a fascinating succulent known for its unique appearance. It features fleshy, narrow, and spiky leaves that resemble a tarantula's legs, giving it an intriguing, almost spider-like look. This compact plant is perfect for adding a touch of exotic charm to any succulent collection or indoor jungle.

Light

Prefers bright, indirect sunlight.

Can tolerate some direct sunlight but avoid intense, midday sun which may scorch the leaves.

Watering

Water thoroughly when the top inch of soil is dry.

Reduce watering in winter as the plant enters a dormant period.

Ensure the pot has good drainage to prevent root rot.

Soil

Use a well-draining succulent or cactus mix.

Adding perlite or sand can improve drainage.

Temperature

Thrives in temperatures between 18-27°C.

Protect from frost; not frost-tolerant.

Humidity

Prefers low to moderate humidity.

Ensure good air circulation to prevent fungal issues.

Fertilising

Feed with a balanced, water-soluble fertiliser diluted to half strength during the growing season (spring and summer).

No need to fertilise in winter.

Repotting

Repot every 2-3 years in spring to refresh the soil and accommodate growth.

Choose a slightly larger pot with good drainage.

Pests

Watch out for common pests like mealybugs and aphids.

Treat infestations promptly with insecticidal soap or neem oil.
