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.

Plant Addicts Warranty - 1 Year (Extra Purchase Required)

We encourage all plant lovers to purchase the Plant Addicts Warranty, whether you're a new gardener or an expert. There are many variables outside of anyone's control that can cause a plant to die.

The Plant Addicts Warranty is a 1 year warranty protecting you from all of the unknowns and will replace your plant if something were to happen to it.

The warranty is purchased on a per plant basis and must be purchased at the same time as the plant(s). We will cover 100% of the price of the plant, but the warranty does not cover shipping costs. SImply let us know if your plant has died within 1 year of receiving it and we will get you a new one shipped out as soon as possible (depending on the time of the year and availability).

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.


If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!


Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
