With its unusual and attention-grabbing foliage, the Gollum Jade Plant will certainly draw some interest wherever it is grown. Botanically named the Crassula ovata 'Gollum', it is also fittingly known as E.T.'s Fingers, Trumpet Jade or even the Money Plant. Either way, this succulent is easy to grow and popular due to its tubular, green, finger-like leaves that can develop a red tip. With an upright and shrubby habit, this plant can grow over time to six feet tall.
Best Locations For Growing Gollum Jade Plant
This Gollum Jade Plant is toxic and should not be grown within reach of children or pets. Apart from that, this extraordinary succulent can be grown in any warm and well-lit room.
Gollum Jade Plant Sunlight Requirements
This plant is fairly tolerant of most lighting situations. However, to get the best from its foliage, grow Gollum Jade in a brightly lit spot. Unlike a lot of houseplants, it can cope with some direct light but may need to be gradually acclimatized to it first.
Gollum Jade Plant Care
The Gollum Jade Plant is not cold hardy and needs to be kept within a temperature range of 65 and 75 °F. Apart from that, it is fairly tolerant and will cope with most humidity levels without being misted. This succulent is relatively slow growing but over time can become quite large. To keep it to size or to encourage thicker growth, it can be judiciously pruned in spring or summer using a sanitized tool to cut back unhealthy-looking and leggy growth. Any brown leaves that appear can carefully be pulled away.
Watering Gollum Jade Plant
During the growing season, the Gollum Jade Plant will on average need to be watered around once a week and less during the winter. As a guideline, when the top layer of soil is dry, it is time to water again. As a succulent, it doesn’t like to sit in soggy soil, so allow any excess water to drain away freely after watering.
Feeding Gollum Jade Plant
Being a light feeder, overfeeding the Gollum Jade Plant can do more harm than good. Hence, feed sparingly, only once or twice from spring until the fall with a succulent-specific fertilizer diluted to half strength.
