Frodo, a Crassula 'Hobbit' or Crassula 'Horntree', is one of the most popular varieties from the wider Crassula family - probably because of its shape! It is smaller and more compact than the standard variety. His leaves are almost tubular in shape, with ends that look like suction cups, or Shrek's ears.
Native to South Africa and Mozambique, once Frodo is established, the stems become thick and form intricate shapes. Oh, and he's super easy to care for.
Frodo, Crassula 'Hobbit' - Baby
Frodo prefers bright indirect light without prolonged exposure to direct sun - a touch of morning sunlight however would be welcomed.
If you’re not sure what level of light you have, check the shadows cast by your plant:
- Minimal shadow = lower light
- Half shadow = indirect light
- Full shadow = direct sun
