Crassula ovata, commonly known as jade or lucky plant, is a perennial evergreen succulent that belongs to the stonecrop family, Crassulaceae. C. ovata is native to South Africa and Mozambique where it is found growing in dry rocky soils. Crassula ovata has succulent ovate leaves that have waxy cuticles on their jade green epidermis. Each leaf measures about 1 to 2 inches long and 0.5 to 1 inch wide. Crassula ovata is a medium-sized plant that typically grows to be around 1 to 3 feet tall and 1 to 2 feet wide. The stems turn a dull gray color with maturity and thicken to form bark like skin. Crassula ovata blooms in late winter to early spring with large inflorescences of tiny white or pink star shaped flowers. This species is grown as an ornamental plant for its ability to thrive from lack of care and its beautiful anatomy. Crassula ovata grows best in full sun to partial shade, sitting in well-draining soils. Water the plant adequately during summer and sparingly during the winter. It is a drought-tolerant species and can tolerate a wide range of temperatures. However, this species must be protected from frost. Allow the soil to completely dry out in between waterings. USDA plant hardiness zones 10a to 11b.

Crassula ovata seeds require consistent moisture and humidity to germinate, but the soil should not remain soaking wet. Cloning boxes, ziplock bags, and other containers that retain humidity are ideal to store sown pots. Use a well-draining sterilized soil mix. Seeds should be sown directly on top of the potting mixture and lightly covered with a thin layer of sand or potting mix, just enough to cover the seeds. Germinating pots should be kept indoors, out of extreme light and heat. Ideal germination temperatures range from 65°F to 75°F. Germination typically takes 1 to 3 weeks to occur. Even with optimal conditions, germination may be slow and sporadic.
