More than two hundred of them are growing in South Africa, many in tropical Africa and Madagascar, some species are found in the south of the Arabian Peninsula - Crasuss are distributed mainly in the southern hemisphere. The name of the genus happened from the word "Crassus", in the translation of the "fat", which in most cases is the fleece structure of the leaves of many representatives of the race. In room flower growing, Crasusla flowers are known as the "Money Tree" or "Tree of Happiness", although it would be correct Call this kind of Crasus Portulakaya. There are in domestic flowers and other representatives of Crassol, but about everything in order.

  • Temperature: In the summer - ordinary for residential premises, in winter - 10-15 ˚C.
  • Watering: After drying the substrate to a depth of 2-3 cm.
  • Air humidity: irrelevant.
  • Feeding: During the period of active growth once a month, fertilizer with cacti and succulents. In the fall and winter feeding do not bring.
  • People's period: It is not pronounced, but rest in winter time is desirable.
  • Transfer: Not less than once every two years, in spring, at the very beginning of active growth.
  • Reproduction: cuttings, less often seeds.
  • Pests: Mathematically and root worms, shields, paw-tones.

Details about the cultivation of Crasus, read below

Botanical description

And in nature, and in culture among Crassol there are tree shrubs, aqueous and even grassy plants, there are giants and tiny succulents, but combines them among themselves one general feature: their leaves are located on the stem against each other crosscright. Succulent Crassus at home, of course, does not reach the same size as in nature, because the room plant of the Crassus is limited and the space, and the amount of soil, and the other conditions necessary for intensive growth, but, nevertheless, homely Crassula has been gradually turns into a tree with a thick svolkom. Leaves are simple, one-piece, in some kinds of seeds. Tree blooms with white, yellow, bluish or red flowers, collected in the final or side umbrella-scaby or private inflorescences, however, at home, the coloring collapse is a rare spectacle. The popularity of Crassul flower has acquired due to its endurance, unpretentiousness and ease of care.

Growing conditions

Most Krassul straight sun rays are harmful, so you can put a pot with a plant on the southern window, although the best place for Crasus is a windowsill window overlooking the south-west or east. The lack of light negatively affects the decorativeness of the Crasus - the shoots are pulled out, the leaves are falling. If you have the opportunity in the summer, it is possible to contain Crassus in the fresh air - on the balcony or terrace - this will benefit the plant.

Crasons of thermal-loving, so the summer heat is transferred normally, and in winter, from the neighborhood with working heaters, they do not suffer as other plants, at the same time they feel beautifully in winter and in cool rooms at a temperature of 10-15 ºC. Low air humidity also for the Crasus is not a problem. Click to start video

In essence, constant care for the Crassus includes only not very frequent watering plants, washing leaves and feeding. How to water the Crassus, which, as already mentioned, is a succulent? How often do it? In the summer, moisturize the plant only after drying the upper layer of soil, let the soil dry by 2-3 cm deep into. Much more drought Crasus is afraid of overwhelming, so she calmly takes your departure on a summer holiday for 3-4 weeks.

Fertilize the Crasus in the spring-summer period once a month with liquid fertilizer for succulent and cacti, in the fall and winter the plant in the feeding does not need.


The formation of a tree should be started when the plant is still young, because when the adult tree is being formed at the site of removal of leaves and truncations, hemps remain, from which the decorativeness of the Crassus. The first thing you need to choose the right pot for the plant: the root of the Crassus in a too big vessel is striving to the depth, and the Crasus itself - up, which is pulling the trunk, becoming weak and thin, so the pot for the Crassus is needed small and, most importantly, is shallow.

As for the soil, the soil for the Crassus should contain three parts of the turf, one part of the ground, leaf land, sand and fine gravel or brick crumbs. When the Crassus reaches a height of 15 cm, disconnect the two youngest tops. - Branching should begin in this place, that is, two pairs of leaves should appear instead of two. As Crassus grows, remove the top leaves in places where, in your opinion, the shoots should branch up - so you will form the crown to your money tree.

Crassula Tree / Crassula Arborescens


Transplanting the Crassus as needed when the roots fill the entire pot, not necessarily annually, but if you want to see the bloom of Crassus, then replancing it at least once every two years. Do it better in spring, at the beginning of active growth.

How to transplant Crasusu? Take the pot of a little more than the previous one, put in it a decent layer of drainage material - clay or bold shards, then pass the Crassus from the old pot into a new one with a lore and add a fresh substrate how much will need to fill emptiness. If the Krassuy's root became too long, shorten it before the transplant, so that he fit into a new pot. If you are striving to save the compact sizes of the Crassus, try to do without transplantation of the plant at all, replacing only the top layer of the substrate in the pot.

Properties of Crassula

Crasusla is the keeper of your health: it highlights substances in the air with a strong antibacterial, antiviral and anti-grab effect.

However, it should be remembered that Crassus juice cannot be accepted because it contains arsenic in high concentration.

It is believed that Crassulu brings good luck in business and well-being in the house, which is why, as well as because of its unassumability in care, Crassoulu can often be seen not only in apartments, but also in the offices of trading firms and shops.

Reproduction of Crasusla

Growing from seeds

Seeds of Crasus sewn into wide plates with a soil of such a composition: leaf land - 1 part, sand 0,5 parts. The plates are covered with glass that is removed daily to remove condensate and ventilation of crops. Seed seeds in two weeks. A slightly grown seedlings are picked at a distance of 1 cm from each other into a container with a soil from one piece of leaf land and half an hour of sand and light turf. Contain sipped seedlings under bright scattered light.

The rapid and adolescent cravings are dismissed in the pots of 5-7 cm in diameter in the ground, consisting of sheet, delicate earth and sand in equal parts, and contain the first time until they come down at a temperature of 16-18 ºC, and then transfer to a permanent place .

Plant Crassus

Shining Crassus

If you think about how it is better to multiply the Crassus, then, of course, the method of reproduction with stalling and reliable, and easier seed. How to root the Crassus and which parts of the plant are suitable on the cuttings? For this method of reproduction, stem segments are also suitable, and leaves. A large escape or a large sheet is cut into a sharp knife by finishing the cut with a crowded coal, rolled for two or three days and planted for rooting in a mixture of sand and leaf land. You can roam the cuttings in water with the addition of charcoal in it.

When the cuttings appear the roots, they are planted in a pot of 5-7 cm in the diameter into the ground from the sheet, the delicate earth and sand in equal proportions, are placed on a permanent place and care for an adult plant. Click to start video

Pests and diseases

It is all the worst of all for Krassul an excess of moisture, from which the roots of the roots can happen and even the base of the trunk can happen, because Crasusla refers to those colors that are better to forget to pour than to pour twice. Danger for Crasus represents and drafts - the plant is caught up, its leaves dry and fall out.

From the insects harm to Crasusuli may cause milders - they are removed from the leaves moistened in a vat's medical alcohol. Sometimes the plants are breeding on the plant, in this case you will have to process the Crassus of the accutelle. If you take a long time for a long time, the web mites can settle on it - about their presence, you will learn about the lightweight web, which appeared on the leaves of Crasus. This trouble is eliminated by the processing of the crown of the plant with the same accomplish or phytodeterm.

Crassula Transplantation

The plant reacts well to dry air of urban apartments, no additional spraying requires. To purify sheet plates from dust it is recommended from time to time to wipe them with a wet cloth. You can wash the flower under the shower, not forgetting to cover the earthen commercial film.

It should be noted that in the collections of indoor plants and stores and stores are found not only to the well-known "money tree", but also other types and varieties of Crassol. Their growing at home has a lot in common and differs only in minor details. So, the varieties with a wax or silver rode on the leaves are better protected from solar burns, therefore, for example, for hybrid Crasus Mix, the care provides for more vivid lighting than for the plane-shaped or portulakaya, which are not bad and in some shading. Different size and growth energy also lead to some differences in care.

Problems in growing

In compliance with the recommendations on the cultivation of money, difficulties arise extremely rare. With rough non-compliance with care requirements, the following problems may arise:

  • If you water the thickness of cold water or put on a draft, it will begin to fall off the leaves;
  • On the leaves, red, yellow or brown spots appeared - these are sunburns;
  • If the crown of the plant has become pale, you need to reduce the frequency of watering;
  • If the barrel curved, then the tree lacks the light.

Diseases The flower is rarely amazed, most often due to the oversupply of moisture in combination with a violation of the temperature regime.


Crasusul Mix may get sulfur or root rot. In the first case, a dirty or yellowish color appears on the leaves, similar to mold. So that the plant does not finally rotate, you need to remove the affected parts and handle the flower with antifungal drug.

If the money tree fell ill with root rot, the root system suffers and stem at the base - they begin to black and rot. So that the plant does not completely die, it needs to be transplanted into a new pot with a complete replacement of soil. At the same time, it is necessary to trim the fallen roots in the process.

Important! To protect the Crasus from the root rot and other diseases, you need to disinfect the soil before landing


First, the fungus is striking the above-ground part of the plant. The leaves are losing color, brown and brown spots appear on them, similar to mold. The flower as a whole looks unhealthy. Need treatment with antifungal drugs. Otherwise, the fastest can perish.

Fitofluorosa infection


From insects on a flower can attack a web tick. If a web is seen, you need to process insecticide or soap solution.

Another pest is a torment Cherver. White bugs, which can be seen with the naked eye, drink juice of the plant. Live on stems and leaves. To combat insects, we wipe the sheets with a cotton disk, moistened in an aqueous solution of alcohol.

Krasul Mix is ​​an unpretentious flower, which pleases the owner with a beautiful crown. It can be easily raised at home. It is believed that the money tree attracts money, cleans the apartment from negative energy and has bactericidal properties. Tolstanka is often given to relatives and friends as a talisman bringing good luck.

Features of breeding

One of the main advantages of this plant is the ease of its reproduction. Different methods are used. The seed method is used very rarely, since the reproduction of stalling is much easier.

Cherencut bush at any time of the year. However, in winter it will take additional backlight and protection from cold. Cut cuttings 2-3 days hold outdoors, rolling, then planted into containers with a light substrate consisting of leaf soil, turf and sand in a 2: 1: 1 ratio.

Sometimes the cuttings are pre-roasted by putting in water with the addition of activated carbon for disinfection. After the roots appear, and the seedlings will begin to grow, they are planted one by one in the container with a diameter of 5 cm.

If you wish to multiply the seeds of seeds, mix the leaf soil and sand in the 2: 1 ratio. Seeds scatter on the surface of the earth. Cover the container with glass, spend regular spraying and ventilate daily. Shoots appear in two weeks. Small rabid dive and move in a very bright place. When a young pig string begins to actively increase in size, it is seated by one bush at a permanent place. The composition of the soil is used as during shine.

Diseases and Money Tree Problems


The main enemy of this plant is excess water. Succulents are able to accumulate and very slowly spend moisture reserves, so they simply do not have time to drink water with frequent and abundant irrigation. The tree is not even required to spray from the sprayer.

Prevention: Correct watering (once a week water room temperature).

Treatment: transplanting to new land and removing patients with roots.

Slow Rost.

The money tree in itself is not growing too quickly, but it can be helped by compliance with the conditions close to the "native". It is access to the light, sufficient drainage in a pot, a decrease in temperature and a decrease in watering during resting period (autumn-winter).

Dropping leaves

Surprisingly, but the fallen foliage of the money tree is its way to seek offspring in a worsening situation. As we already know, the fat man can multiply with leaves, and in nature with an unfavorable change in factors, the tree throws off the leaves in the hope of giving life at least "descendants".

In this case, we check a number of factors at once:

  • Whether the tree was not crowded directly from the tap with cold water.
  • Not too much fertilizer was made.
  • There were no extreme changes in temperature, drafts, the scorching sun, etc.

Useful properties of Crassus

Prettyanka is a real keeper of your health. It emits in the air such substances that have antigribkov, antiviral and antibacterial effect. But that's not all. Crassula leaves are used in folk medicine, since its juice has a multitude of useful properties. This agent is used for row, which are particularly effective in herpes, insect bite. Also juice can be used to treat various cuts, bruises, injections. With an angina or inflammation of the gums, it is recommended to carry rinsing using Tolstanka juice, and in arthritis you need to make it rubbing overnight. But during treatment, using this juice, you should not forget that it contains a fairly large concentration of arsenic. When taking inside it can be dangerous for life. Therefore, the Crassus juice is suitable only for outdoor use.

As for accepting and superstitions, it is believed that the money tree brings good luck and wealth to the house. That is why this plant is quite often put not only in residential apartments and houses, but also in offices, shops and other work premises.

Female in the culture of the East

The money tree is used to normalize the energy of qi - to arrange the wealth sector. In the house there is such a place is the southeast side. There you need to put a tree, putting a red napkin or tablecloth under the pot.

In the monetary energy sector there should be no old cheap things - they interfere with the circulation of flows. The sector needs to light well, especially since Crasusla loves light - not straight rays, but very bright lighting needed to form chlorophyll and growth of shoots.

It will help to activate the water sector. Well, if it is a mini fountain or aquarium. Their moisture will help the tree to avoid increased dryness.

It is believed that the tree can eliminate the negative energy, as the form of the leaves is oval or round.

Landing and reproduction

Rooting cuttings in water

A simple and infertility method giving good results, as the root system will be already developed

IMPORTANT: Sometimes with this method of roots can be drown, so be attentive

  1. A healthy process is cut off in an adult tree, dried slightly and installed in the water (follow the leaves to be water).
  2. We are waiting for the appearance of the roots of 2-3 weeks, changing the water 1 time per week.
  3. We take suitable potted pot.
  4. We smell a sufficient amount of drainage pebbles.
  5. Fill the caspets of the earth (the finished excavation mixture is ideal for cacti and succulents). This seemingly poor and dry earth with pebbles and sand impurities - the usual and comfortable environment for succulents.
  6. We set the cuttings, cheer and evenly add ground to the desired level (do not block).
  7. We water, install on the prepared place.
  8. In subsequent days, do not transfer the earth, let it better stay a little dry.
  9. We wish you good luck!

Rooting cuttings in soil

The flow of money towered in the earth immediately remains in his house, without needing additional landing, which is extremely convenient. We act like this:

  1. Cut from an adult tree a sprout of 10-15 cm long.
  2. Cooking the pot, filling drainage and earth.
  3. Place the process so that it does not fall.
  4. We suprate the earth evenly.
  5. We water (in this case, you can also use a special solution for the formation of roots).
  6. We place a planted stalk in a light and warm place.
  7. We are waiting for the appearance of new leaves (this is a signal that the roots have successfully began to grow).

Reproduction sheet

Alignment and unpretentious money tree gives us the opportunity to get new plants even from leaves! Our actions:

  • We choose a piece of leaf (best, oddly enough, faded slightly);
  • You can cut off a healthy leaf and leave it for the air day;
  • I lower the sheet into the water cut on the half acemeter;
  • Some add special drugs to rapid root formations;
  • We are waiting for the roots, and then we transplant the leaf into the ground.

Cut sheet can be immediately rooted in the soil.

Place a cut down in a glass or a pot of a cut; Follow the humidity, do not transfix; For early growth, you can install a mini-greenhouse in the form of cans, cellophane or transparent plastic cup

Problems of cultivation, disease and pests

Most often, the disease of the flower is manifested in violation of the rules of care. For example, stagnation of water helps to boot the root system. Drying leaves and sealing of green mass occurs due to the violation of the temperature mode and drafts.

Diseases of money trees

From the pests the most dangerous is the milders of the creeks. To get rid of insects, you must use a cotton disk, moistened in alcohol. If the shield appears, it is necessary to urgently sprinkle with water with the addition of the preparation of accleretics. If you allow long-term soil drying, you can settle on the succulent paws. In the fight against them, the pesticide was well established - PhyTenerm.

Flowering type

It is important to explore the species features of Tolstanka and not forget about the observance of the rules of Crassoli's care. Creating a suitable climate for the plant will allow you to get a real decoration of the house, and will also give the opportunity to achieve the formation of flower

The well-kept type of succulent will be not only many years to delight its owner, but also, according to folk signs, will bring prosperity to the house.

Diseases and pests Crasus Cologves

The most serious problem in the cultivation of Craral Craral is overflow. The root system of the plant under conditions of oxide of moisture is very soon at the time, the flower goes down, the foliage softens and over time is covered with brown spots, which indicate that most of the roots are permanently lost.

The plant is subject to immediate removal of the pot, the root inspection, removal of rotten and damaged. If there are healthy roots even in a small amount, there is a point in trying to save the flower. To do this, it should be treated with a solution of a fungicide, for example, Fundazola, and leave to climb a couple of days, then put in a new substrate and withstand up to 5-6 days, without watering.

The absence of new spots on the sheets indicates that the disease retreats. However, with the restoration of irrigation, it is not worth a rush, it is desirable not to moisturize the plant for 2-3 weeks, only then pouring very poorly and again make a long break between irrigation. Only finally making sure that the disease completely retreated, the watering mode with a complete drying of the soil between the next moisturies resume.

Crasus is impossible to save if, after removing the soil, completely rotted roots are found. It remains only to try to discharge on new specimens and then if you can choose healthy cuttings without brown spots on the foliage.

To most pests Krasul Coral is stable. In room conditions, it may be in the zone of parasitic action of Tly and milders. With a minor colony of pests, they are inharaged by hand using a cotton tampon, moistened in alcohol, or wash off with a solution of economic soap. If there are many insects, use chemical treatment insecticide, and shed with solution and soil, because among the workers there are species living in the ground.

Sometimes in stores you can purchase small succulent plants under the general name "Succulents Mix". On one tray, the pallet is set up whole collections of small (and very inexpensive) succulents: take what you want. But when you bring a new pet home, I want to know the name more precisely.

For example, these suggestions are:

If the plant is indicated in the name of the plant, as in this case, this means that the indoor plant can be of different colors (and species).

Succulent mix. Choose your!

Our recent acquisitions are a pair of such plants, the names of which managed to establish due to help from people weighing in succulents.

"SUKCULENTS MICS", the names of which are to be defined.

Sometimes the definition of the exact name may cause some difficulties, because many species are quite similar. In an adult plant, the difference is easier to see, but when you have a little baby, there may be doubts.

For example, difficulties may occur when determining the type of Tolstanka.

For example, this is a plant - Crassula Hollum, Hobbit or Coral? Apparently (see comparison of the species below) - this is a Hollum.

Crassus (Fleece) Hollum (C. Gollum).

Crassula Ovata Hobbit (Crassula Ovata Hobbit) and Crassula Hollum (C. Gollum) are similar, but the hobbit leaves is wider and more ears, and Hollum has more tubes and chopsticks.

Hobbit or Hollum?

Crassols of the Hobbit (C. Hobbit) and Hollum (C. Gollum) - two similar hybrid varieties created in the 1970s in the United States, presumably, by crossing Krassul Ovat and Milk (S. Lactea).

Both species have the original form of the leaves, HobBit - turned outward and survived from the base to the middle, and the Gollum is completely twisted into the tube with funnel-shaped extending tips (the so-called "Shrek's ears").

There is still a Cologdist (C. Coral, C. Skinny Fingers). She has most of the leaves like wands, tapering to an end, with funk-shaped tips, as well as a powerful trunk and numerous side shoots.

Crasus Mix, different plants.

And what about the second plant (from the first photo in the article)?

it Adromistus Cooper.

Adromiskus (AdRomischus) belongs to the Tolstanka family (Crassulaceae). Right from southwestern and South Africa. Very thick leaves resembling "barrels", with a wavy edge with specks.

Adromiskus (AdRomischus) Cooper.

There is a similar view called Cotialon.

And this was Mix.

Flowering conditions

Flowering "Money Tree" directly depends on the conditions of growth:

  1. In the natural environment blooms at the beginning of the growing season - in the spring. Tiny stars of fragrant flowers with five petals are inflorescences in the form of a brush or sweaters. White and pink shades prevail.
  2. In the natural environment, plants bloom, which reached an adult state (8-15 years), and at home this age is even more solid - in the region of 20 years, subject to constant compliance with all rules of care.
  3. Flowering in indoor culture occurs extremely rarely and far from each plant. The flowering period is the winter months (very rarely - spring). Inflorescences ripen on young shoots. The cooler in the room, the longer flowering (up to 3 months).
  4. In the home culture "Money Tree" of the retained age forms buds after prolonged or short-term stress: cessation of watering for a month or a sharp change in temperature regime. Return to normal conditions can give bloom. But it is possible to destroy the plant (put or freeze).
  5. After the first domestic flowering, this process can be repeated annually, but five-year gaps are also possible.

Cash care after transplantation

Money tree refers to succulents. For them, the correct watering plays a major role. In natural conditions, the flower accumulates in the leaves of moisture (in the rainy season) to gradually spend it into dry and hot weather. Home flower lives in the same mode.

Money tree - home care and flowering

The thickness does not require special fertile soil. It grows slowly, why nutrients from the soil takes gradually. Feed the tree at the beginning of vegetation in spring and early autumn. In the spring, potassium, nitrogen and phosphorus involve.

Important! During rest, the plant is placed in a dark place at home, and in the summer they bring to the balcony

Illumination and temperature regime

The fat man loves moderate temperature. If it is transplanted in the spring, then she will quickly go into growth. With a summer transplant, the temperature is provided by the plant from +19 to +23. During the day, he is brought to the balcony and leave in a half. For the presence of a tree in winter, the optimal temperature mode from +10 to +13.

Rules of irrigation and humidity

Regular watering start two weeks after a transplant. To do this, use water room temperature, which is pre-defended. Watering is required at the moment when the upper layer of soil dries. In the spring they moisturize the ground no more than once a week, in summer, watering boosts up to two times a week. In winter and falling in the fall no more than once a month. Excessive moisture in the winter can lead to radiating roots, weakening immunity.

Crassula's succulent plant (Crassula), still called Tolstanka, is part of the Tolstanka family. According to information taken from various sources, this genus combines from 300 to 500 different species. More than 200 species occurs on the territory of South Africa, a large number of species can be met in Madagascar and in tropical Africa. Part of the species can be found in the southern part of the Arabian Peninsula, such a plant is widespread mainly in the southern hemisphere. His name is formed from the word "Crassus", which is translated as "fat", this is due to the fact that most types of foliage has a meaty structure. At home, the most often grown the view of the Crassus Portulakaya, it is still called the "Tree of Happiness", or "Money Tree". However, in room conditions, many other types of Crassus are also grown.

Brief description of cultivation


  1. Bloom . Crasus grows as a decorative deciduous plant.
  2. Light . It grows well with the bright light of the sun, and even with bright, but scattered light, as well as in shading. To do this, windows are eastern, southern and south-western orientation.
  3. Temperature mode . In the summer - the usual room temperature, and in winter - from 10 to 15 degrees.
  4. Watering . Immediately after the surface of the soil in the pot will dry to a depth of 20 to 30 mm.
  5. Air humidity . Any suitable.
  6. Fertilizer . During intensive growth, feeding is carried out 1 time in 4 weeks, for this purpose, a solution of fertilizer for succulents and cacti is used. In the autumn-winter period, the plant does not feed.
  7. Period of rest . Is not pronounced. However, it will be better if in winter such a succulent rests.
  8. Transfer . Approximately 1 time a couple of years. The transplant is carried out in springtime at the beginning of the intensive growth of the bush.
  9. Reproduction . Seed (generative) method and shilling.
  10. Harmful insects . Mathematically and root worms, shields, paw-tones.
  11. Diseases . Gray rot, root rot, rotten root rot, phytoofluorosis.
  12. Properties . This succulent is capable of separating substances into air, which differ in anti-virus, antifungal and antibacterial effect. In alternative medicine, its juice is used externally in the same cases as aloe juice, while in terms of efficiency they are the same. But it should be noted that this juice is prohibited inside, as arsenic is included in its composition.

Features of Crassus

Features of Crassus

In culture, as in natural conditions, it is possible to endure the Crassus represented by grassy and aquatic plants, tree shrubs, there are both very small succulents and large, but they have one common feature: on the shoot, their sheet plates are placed against each other. Cross . Such a succulent plant in the cultivation in room conditions has a smaller value compared to those specimens that the fact is growing in nature in the fact that such a crack is limited by the volume of soil, space and other conditions that are needed for active growth. However, over time, such a flower still becomes a trees with a thick stem. Sheet plates are solid and simple, in part of the species they are seeded. Side or final inflorescences can be a creeping or umbrella-blurred, their composition includes flowers of yellow, red, white or pale blue colors. But it should be noted that in room conditions the thickness almost never blooms. This culture is very popular among the flower water, due to the fact that it is unpretentious, straightened and for her very just to care.



It is very easy to grow a Tolstanka in room conditions, for this it must not be very often watering, regularly wash the sheet plates and feed the timely.


Most of the species of Crassol to harm the straight rays of the sun can not, so the container with a flower can be placed on the southern orientation windowsill. However, the best of all such a culture will grow on the Eastern or South-West window. If the bush feel the lack of light, it will definitely affect his decorativeness, namely, the foliage takes place, and the shoots will become elongated. In the summer, Tolstanka is recommended to transfer to the street, where she will feel great.

Temperature mode

The thickness is distinguished by thermo-lobby, in connection with this summer in hot days it feels good. And in winter it can be quite normal to grow next to heaters. However, in winter, such a culture feels quite comfortable in the coolness (from 10 to 15 degrees). Room humidity in the room can be high or low, the bush will grow equally well.

How to water

How to water

In the summer, watering Crassus should be carried out immediately after drying the upper layer of the soil. In winter it is necessary to wait until the substrate will dry to a depth of 20 to 30 mm. This plant is not so scary to dry the substrate, as stagnation in it. In this regard, it will be able to calmly unimpose 20-30 days until you send or in summer holidays.


Feed the bush in spring and summer 1 time in 4 weeks, for this, use a solution of fertilizer for cacti or succulent plants. In the autumn-winter period, all feeding stops.

Formation of Tolstanka

Formation of Tolstanka

It is necessary to start forming a tree when the bush is still relatively young. The fact is that if the adult plant is already forming, then in those places where the stalks were truncated or the leaf plates were truncated, hemps will remain, which will be extremely negatively affecting the decorativeness of the bush.

To begin with, select the right tank for landing. If the pot will be too big, the root of the bush will strive deep into, and he will begin to actively grow up, because of which the trunk will become stretched thin and weakened. In this regard, it is recommended to use a fairly small and low pot. It is important to prepare and correct soil, which should consist of a sheet, humid and turf, and still from brick crumb (fine gravel) and sand (1: 1: 3: 1: 1). After the height of the bustle will be equal to 15 centimeters, he needs to pinp off 2 of the smallest sheet plates located at the very top, in this place he will begin to branch, namely, instead of one pair of leaves will grow two. In a growing bush, it is necessary to systematically overst the top leaflets in those places where you wish to branched the stems. Thus, you will succeed to give the growing trees the necessary form.

Crassula Transplantation

Crassula Transplantation

The transplant should be carried out as needed after the root system becomes very closely in the pot. It is not necessary to transplant Tolstanka every year, however that it blooms a transplant must be carried out once a couple of years. This procedure is recommended to produce in spring time at the beginning of intensive growth.

A new pot should be only a bit more old, at his bottom it is necessary to make a fairly thick layer of drainage, for this you can use the crushed shards or clayzit. Then the flower is transplanted into a new tank by transshipment, while it takes it together with an earthen room, then all empties fill in fresh soil. In the event that the root system of the bush rumbled greatly, it needs to be shorted during transplant, so that it can fit in a new container. If you wish you to have a compact size, you need to try not to transplant it at all, while 1 time per year you need to change the upper layer of soil.

Properties of Crassula

You can preserve the health of everyone who lives in the house where she grows. Such a flower is capable of separating substances into air, which have a powerful antiviral, antibacterial and anti-haircut effect. In addition, the foliage juice is widely used in alternative medicine for row in the treatment of OS bite and bees, bruises, herpes, jaws and cuts. It is still used for rinsing in the treatment of inflammation of gums and angina. Also in arthritis juice is used for rubbing overnight. But note that such juice cannot be accepted, since it includes arsenic at great concentration. It is believed that the fatman brings welfare to the house and good luck in business. And thanks to unpretentiousness in care, it is often found not only in apartments, but also in shopping centers and in the offices.

Methods of breeding

Methods of breeding

Reproduction of Crasus Seeds

Seeding seeds of Crassus must be carried out in wide places that are filled with a substrate consisting of sand and leaf land (1: 2). The capacity from the top is covered with glass, while every day it is necessary to clean the condensate with it, and do not forget the crops regularly ventilated. The first seedlings should seem after 15 days. After the seedlings are growing a little, they should be signed in a large container, observing between bushes with a distance of 10 mm, while it should be filled with a substrate consisting of a slight turf and leaf land and sand (1: 2: 1). After diving, the container with rasters put in a well-lit place, while the light should be bright and scattered. After the bushes are growing and fixed, they should be sipped according to individual pots, which in the diameter reach 50-70 mm, and they should be filled with a substrate, which includes a turf and leaf land, as well as sand (1: 1: 1) . As long as they do not fit, they should be kept at a temperature of from 16 to 18 degrees, and then they put them for a permanent place.

Reproduction of Crassoulla Chenikov

Reproduction of Crassoulla Chenikov

To multiply the Crassula with cuttings is much easier and faster than seeds. As a cutlets, leaf plates can be used, as well as stem segments. A large leaf plate or a big escape should be trimmed with a very sharp knife, while the sections of the sections should be sprinkled with chopped wood coal. They must be checked for 2-3 days, and then planted into a substrate consisting of leaf land and sand for rooting. Also on rooting them can be put into water mixed with charcoal. After the cuttings grow roots, they should be planted into individual pots, in the diameter reaching 50-70 mm. To fill them, use a substrate consisting of a delicate and leaf land, and also sand (1: 1: 1). Then the bushes are removed to a permanent place, while care for them is needed the same as adult plants.

Pests and diseases of Crasus

Pests and diseases of Crasus

The greatest danger for the Crassus is stagnant fluid in the substrate, since due to the root system and the base of the barrel may appear rot. The fact is that this culture is among those plants that the earthen coma is driving less than frequent watering. More than such a flower will be very harmful to the drafts, if he caresses, he will get drying and flying foliage.

In such a plant, milders can settle in order to remove them from foliage, use a melt that is moistened in alcohol. In some cases, the shields will settle on it to get rid of them, the bush should be accomplished by accomplishing. In the event that the bush does not pour for a long time, it can occupy the web ticks, it is possible to learn about it on a thin cob, which is formed on the sheet plates. To combat them, you can use phytodener or accility.

Types of Crasus with photos and names

As mentioned above, there is a very large number of types of Crassol. Below will be given a description of those species that enjoy the greatest popularity in flower flowers. Representatives of tree Tolstyankas, called "cash trees":

Crassula Ovata (Crassula Ovata) or egg-shaped

Crasusla oval

This species is the most popular in flower water. His homeland is the southwestern part of Africa. In nature, the height of the bush can reach 300 cm, and when growing at home it does not happen above 150 cm. Oval glossy sheet plates are painted in green or gray-silver color. Such a plant is fast-growing and it grows a large number of shoots. The top umbrellas consist of small pink flowers or white. This species is distinguished by the greatest teenagebility from all others, which is very important when cultivating at home. Breeders This species is used as the main to derive a large number of varieties that are very simple and easy to grow even novice flowers. For example:

Crassula Ovata (Crassula Ovata) or egg-shaped

  • Crasus Minor. - this is a compact form of an egg-shaped cravilla, especially the "Crosbis Compact" variety is highlighted, its pale-red sheet plates in length reach up to 15 mm, and in width to 10 mm, such a kind of good for mini-gardens;
  • Crassula Hobbit and Crasus Hollum - these 2 American hybrids of the milk colleague and the ovoid cravings are very similar to each other, they have an unusual to be turned out to the outflow of sheet plates, which have grown from the base to the middle - at the Hobbit, and with rolled in the tube expanding funnel-shaped to the tips of Harlum leaflets;
  • Crassus Sunset. - This three-color Cultivar has foliage, the surface of which is decorated with a strip of yellow or white, and she also has a red edging.

Crassula Tree (Crassula Arborescens)

Crassula tree

This species is similar to the Crassula egg-shaped. The barrel and the branches are naked, the shape of flat fleshy leafy plate plates round-in-one-person, they have a gray-handed color with a pale blue sampling and red crossing over the edge, their length can vary from 35 to 70 mm. Metelkovoid inflorescences consist of white or pinkish flowers, but when growing in room conditions, blooming such a plant is a very rare phenomenon. In order for such a species to grow well and develops, he needs a bright sunlight, while he does not like the shadow. The following varieties are cultivated with flowers:

Crassula Tree (Crassula Arborescens)

  • Crassula Undulatifolia - Flat narrow foliage of a bluish-silver color has red tips, there is a voyage shape;
  • Cracheriavaya Crassula - with wavy large leaf plates.

Crassula Portulakaya (Crassula Portulacea) or silver

Crassula Portulakaya (Crassula Portulacea) or silver

Outwardly, this species is very similar to the Crassus tree and oval, however, it differs more compact values.

The greatest popularity of the flowerwood is enjoying such rawlings, as:

Crassula Playovoid (Crassula Lycopodioides), or mossy (Crassula Muscosa)

Crassula Plauanovoid

This shrub plant is characterized by compactness, it reaches no more than 25 centimeters. Sliding fleshy stems have a tetrahed shape and wrapped tops. By the placement and structure of sheet plates, this species is very similar to the pladen. It has inconspicuous and grows well in shading, and during the bright sunlight of his foliage becomes slightly reddish.

Crassula Falconnovnovoid (Crassula Pseudolycopodioides)

Crasusla falcon-like

The stems of this species are distinguished by a greater curved, and they are not very severely pressed to the shoots. There are forms of which the foliage of which has silver, yellow or motley color.

Crasusla Lacta, or Milky (Crassula Lactea)

Crassula Lacta, or Milky

This large ampel plant is the length of the stems about 0.3 m. Rounded pointed to the tips of greenish-gray leaf plates have a length of 30-40 mm and a width of 20-30 mm.

Crassula Picturata (Crassula Picturata)

Crassula pointing

This species is characterized by high decorativeness. On the connecting branching stems there are leaflets with an unusual color: there are many points of red on the bottom side of the plate, they look purulene on the underside. On the edge of the foliage there are transparent cilia.

In addition to these splinters, flower types are still grown by Krasul Cooper and a tetrahedral.

In the culture of the greatest popularity of colon-shaped cravings like:

Perforate Crassula, or Digitable (Crassula Perforata)

Crassula perforated

A small bush decorates the foliage of a diamond shape that covers escape as if she is risen on him. The color of the foliage is greenish with a sizogue bloom, and on the edge there is a cartilaginous red bordering.

Crassula Buddha

Crassula Buddha

This hybrid of Perfolian Crassus and Crassouls Pyramidal more correctly call the Krussula "Buddha temple" ("Buddha's Temple"). Such a bustice is externally similar to columns that consist of tightly pressed leaf plates of triangular shape and dark green color. After the height of such a "column" exceeds 15 centimeters, it is capable of falling under its own weight on the side. Shortly topful inflorescences consist of red flowers.

In room conditions, such species are cultivated as: the edge (or bordered), shovel, rock-in, rounded, offshore, foster, sickle, grouped, pierced, woolly, shmidt, etc. In specialized stores, in some cases, the plant can be met, referred to "Crassula Mix". In this case, it must be borne in mind that this is not the name of the form or a variety, but simply marking a party of Crassol, which means that it consisted of a variety of species and varieties.

It has long been almost in every house grew on the windowsill Crasus. Care at home behind the plant does not require any particular effort from a flower, a lot of time or botanical knowledge. It suffices to learn several light rules and fulfill their responsibly.

Most of the species from the genus of the element of the same family in vivo grow in the southern regions of Africa and on the island of Madagascar. Their value and form are the most diverse. Among them are perennial, single and two-year plants that live on land, and even in water. However, the advantage is still for succulents that are growing on sandy and stony soils. In moderate latitudes, they are grown only in the conditions of closed soil - in the oranges, winter gardens and the windowsill in the apartment.

What do Tolstyanka look like?

Crasuslas are a multi-sided genus, whose representatives are completely miniature crumbs in a height of several centimeters, and a decent height of 3-4 m grassy giants.

The leaves in many Krassul are located oppositely on monocarpic shoots or form a compact root rosette, simple and all-strinny, form oval, rounded, rhombic, often semicircle, and at the base or have grown or free.

Flowers preferably do not represent decorative value, dimensions are small and unwashed, most often whitish color, but come with a yellow tinge, less often coral and very rarely pale blue. Collected in lateral or top umbrella or creeps-shaped inflorescences.

Tolstanki has a property of accumulating in the leaves of arsenic, so the hitting of their fragments into a human digestive system, especially children, as well as pets is extremely dangerous for their health.

Views of Tolstyanok

In various sources, it is called an unequal number of species in the family - from 200 to 300-350. About 25 representatives of Tolstyanka, their shapes and varieties with unusual victims are grown in the indoor flowerness of the middle strip.

The most popular of them:

  • Crassula Ovata, or Oval (Crassula Ovata) and its shapes and varieties - Crosby's Compact, Crassus Hobbit Hobbit, Crassula Gollum Gollum, Hammels Sunset (Crassula Ovata CV.

Landing Rules and Flower Capacity

The fat man is equally growing well in clay, and in plastic dishes. The size of the pot is selected in such a way that it is only a little diameter exceeded the previous one and it turned out to be too spacious for the root system of the flower.

Young Crasuss transplanted annually, adult specimens - every 2-3 years. The soils are made of turf or leaf land, the ruggage peat and washed river sand. The root neck is placed at the same level as in the old pot. Immediately after transplantation, the plant is not crowded for several days to exclude infection from the water in small wounds on the root system, which happened during the transfers.

Basic lighting and temperature requirements

Tolstanka is considered the most shadowless succulent, but for normal development and annual flowering, it needs good lighting, even during the relative peace from October to February. In winter, it is transferred to the lightest window in the apartment, but the temperature during this period is maintained low - within 12-14 degrees of heat. The critical thermometer indicator is a short-term decrease of up to 5 degrees above zero under the condition of dry content, almost without watering.

With the arrival of heat, the plant is transferred to the garden, but the exhausting heat of the Crassus does not like - with high ambient temperatures, the leaflets become soft, lose their elasticity, thinning and turning.

How to care for collapse

Ensure the correct watering is one of the most important tasks in the care of Crasus at home. It is advisable to use soft and acidified water that does not contain chlorine to moistrate the Tolstanka. The tap water is estimated in an open vessel for no less than a day, before irrigation, it is checked its temperature - it should not be cold. Usually follow the thermometer indicator corresponding to room temperature or 2-3 degrees above. For acidification, a slightly pink solution of manganese can be added to the irrigation water.

During the vegetation, it is necessary to water Tolstanka with so much water that would impregnate the entire earth com. The roots of the plant, to which the water does not reach during irrigation, begin to gradually die, relaxing the plant. In winter, the succulent is watered very rarely, especially if the plant is placed in the cool room.

Thin, barely noticeable edging of the sheet plates posed or a purple shade will tell the flower, that everything is in order, and the moisture, and the lighting is enough. However, if the kaimo becomes more intensely painted, almost red, it means that the plant is not moistened enough or contain it in too hot for it.

The feeders produce only during the growing season with special fertilizers for succulents and cacti once a month. However, the recently recent plant in good fertile soil in the feeding does not need, moreover, to some extent they are even undesirable, because they do not allow the succulent to independently develop immunity to various kinds of problems in the development and adverse conditions of the winter period.

Breeding Tolstyanka

In the room flower growing, the most common way to multiply the Crasus - leafy or stem cuttings. They are cut with neatly sharp blade, wounds and on the process, and in the royaltics are triggered by activated or charcoal and leave for several days to dry cuts. Then they plant in well washed wet river sand or in soil, they are not covered on top. Support a substrate wet, but not wet. Typically, Tolstanka is rooted actively and well spicy roots even in ordinary water.

The seed method of breeding the Crassus is rarely applied, it does not fit the varietary forms and unusual varieties, since the succulents grown from seeds almost never identically repeat the features of the maternal instance. However, natural species are grown out of seeds.

They are sown in a peat-sand mix and moisturized with a pulverizer. To create a greenhouse effect, crops are covered with polyethylene film and put the vessels on a warm place. With the appearance of 3-4 seedlings, the seedlings are diverting for further comprehension into separate small pots filled with nutritional land. Seedlings grow slowly, in the flower capacity of the larger diameter they are over, when they form at least 7-8 leaves.

Diseases and pests of Crasus

Tolstanki is considered one of the most resistant to pests and plant diseases. Only excessive watering are caused serious harm. If the foliage looks softened, and the succulent seems to hang in the substrate, in addition, visible pests are not observed on the leaves, and strange dark spots and soft sections appeared - there are all signs of rot after the bay.

Plant must be removed from the pot and carefully examine the roots. Damaged areas of the root system are cut, if there are few of them, there is a chance to save a thickness, while having fungicides, the same Fundazole, for example. However, strongly affected roots can not be saved. The plant can be triggered repaid again, cutting off the entire root system and driving for 7-10 days. Next, the flower is planting in pure sand and rarely moisturize. Another way out is to draw, that is, to disassemble a large number of cuttings into fragments and rooted in a classic way.

From pests on mushrooms, shields, web ticks, traps are noticed. If the shields did not have time to multiply and settled a small colony, they are removed by hand, and all the plant washed with soapy solution several times with a break in a few days. With a massive damage, the Crasus is treated with insecticides, for example, a Testa preparation. This method gets rid of the trips. Bow ticks are destroyed by acaricides - phytodeterm, unoeval, treatment with accuters is carried out outside the residential premises, because this drug is toxic.

Cash care at home

Check out our articles of Crasus (monetary tree or crack) - views, photos and titles in order to choose a flower in the shower. Here we will tell you about how to care for Tolstanka to please you for many years.

Location and lighting

Intensive lighting - the key to active growth, health and beauty of your pet. The place for the pot must be selected on the spacious windowsill of the southern, southeast or southwestern directions or near them. Almost all kinds of tree crousses, namely, they include Tolstanka, react well to solar lighting. The color of their leaves directly depends on the lighting intensity.

Tolstanka lighting

Only from varieties with a pure green coloring leaves from the midday sun, the surface of the leaves can become dark brown, and its edges acquire a reddish edge. So that this does not happen, shadow such a flower from direct sunlight in the middle of the day curtain or blinds. The rest of the money is not afraid of the rest of the money.

With a lack of lighting, the voyage and flowering varieties can lose the bright color of their leaves and not blooming. To uniformly form a flower crown, it is necessary to periodically rotate it to the source of illumination with different sides. In the summer, all Tolstanka is desirable to endure on open air. Place Choose well lit, but protected from wind - there they will grow well, and some will bloom.

If you have in the apartment window only the northern direction, you can not do without the help of phytolamba or daylight lamps. Without them, after a short time, the plant will lose its decorativeness - shoots will begin to stretch to the light, leaves thinning, fill and fall.

Detention temperature

The money tree feels well at normal room temperature in the range of 22 - 28 grams. In summer, it can be reached by a balcony, a veranda, garden. If you do not have such an opportunity, rearrange the pot from the window sill to the floor - there is a bit more cool. The temperature change during the day is only beneficial for the flower.

How to care for money in rest

Fat photo.

In winter, the fat man prefers to relax. From the end of November to February, it is necessary to provide a lower temperature: 14 - 16 grams. Remove the pot away from the heating devices, put it from the balcony door, more often carry out the room (not forgetting that drafts can destroy the plant). Water once a month, do not feed. If you have a heated loggia, the Crasus can winter on it at a temperature of 8 - 10 grams. At high temperatures during the winter peace, the plant can reset the foliage and lose decorativeness. The experts argue that the fat man can withstand a decrease in temperature to 0 gr. But we do not advise you to do this. But to secure three months of cool content you try.

We resemble - draft plant does not tolerate.


It is important to know how to water the money tree at home. The thickness reacts greatly to the presence of excess moisture in the soil. It can be said that the flower in moisture needs little. Never pour succulents. Their root system is prone to reinclinition, immediately will begin to fall off the leaves, the lush crown will turn with a bald stem. Therefore, before starting watering, make sure that there are drainage holes in the pot. If there are no holes in your pot on the bottom of the hole, you will have to do them - drill a drill or burn a hot seer. Now you can water.

how to water a money tree

In summer, the money tree is watered abundantly once every 2 - 3 weeks. Young specimens watered more often, especially in the heat, every week. The substrate during this time should dry at least 2 - 3 cm. Deep into the pot.

If you have an adult plant, you can safely go to rest, not worrying about it. Thick juicy leaves of money delayed moisture, and the plant can wait for your arrival for a month without losing a single leaflet.

In the fall, water Tolstanka in 3 - 4 weeks. Remember that the upper layer of the substrate fits very quickly, especially on the sunny windowsill through the glass, but this is a deceptive moment. Check out a little deeper - most likely around the roots of the soil still raw. The next watering, produce when the substrate will dry by 4 cm deep into the pot.

If the soil between irrigation does not dry up for a long time, then it was not chosen correctly or a pot is too big and the problem is in it. Excess moisture after watering from the pallet must be merged.

In winter, if the fat man is in a cool room on vacation (from November to February), watering comes down to a minimum. Watch only that the soil in the pot does not dry completely. Signal to watering is the leaves - they become soft.

Water for watering should be used resistant, filtered or boiled, room temperature or a pair of degrees above.


The humidity in the room does not play a large role in the life of a money tree. This plant is succulent. Its stems and leaves accumulate moisture and consume it into adverse dry periods, for example during the heating season. Under the condition of regular ventilation of the room, it feels great in an urban apartment. If for some reason the fastener turned out to be in a wet microclimate, then watering is reduced to a minimum. And in spraying, this flower does not need, because it can lead to a deterioration of the appearance of leaves and, even - to their winding.

At the same time, to maintain the purity and elasticity of the leaves, they should be wiped with a wet sponge or napkin. Clean leaflets are best saturated with oxygen. While the dimensions of the flower allow, you can periodically wash the leaves with a warm shower in the bathroom. Just follow the water to do not get to the substrate, it is better to close the pot with a film.

The soil

Soil for money

What land is needed for money? Soil should be not so much nutrient as loose, moisture and breathable. Special soil is suitable for succulent plants, which can be purchased in flower shops. Prepare yourself are also possible. To do this, mix 1 hour. Sheet land, 3 hours. Derdy earth, 1 h. Humming, 1 h. Large river sand, 1 h. Small gravel or agroperlite. You can add some ash. Fan Shui lovers can put two - three coins of different dignity to attract wealth. At the bottom of the pot, along with drainage, add pieces of wood or activated carbon to prevent fungal infections.


Money Tree Pot

The root flower system is basic, rather weak, surface. Therefore, a pot for money should be selected by the width of the roots. In addition, it should be shallow and heavy, better - clay, so that the growing village does not overturn him. In such a pot of roots will be well developed, delivering moisture and nutrients to the stems and leaves.

Young, fast-growing fastest in a year it will be necessary to change the pot - on the pot, more spacious. Adult specimens require transplants less often - once every 2-3 years. In adulthood, the money tree has a lush crown and a high strong trunk. The risk of tipping the pot increases. We recommend during the next plant transplantation to install a support in a pot to which the flower bind.

Drainage for money

Special attention is paid to the drainage layer. The crack is a very sensitive plant to the rebupping of moisture, so a good drainage layer in a pot is simply necessary. As a drainage you can use any non-rotting material - clayzit, stone, pebbles, cork. Before use - disinfect them.


The money tree needs feeding only during the active growth of stalks and leaves - from the end of spring and until mid-August. Three baggords during this time. Preferences should be given fertilizers for cacti or succulents. In order not to suffer the root system, the feeding should be made in liquid form after some time after the main irrigation.

If the flower in the spring was transplanted into a new substrate, it should not feed it this season. In winter, the plant is also not feeding.


Cash transplantation

The best time for transplanting Tolstankov is considered autumn or end of March - April. Young trees transplant annually, adults - after two or three years.

So how to transplant the money tree? If the time has come, remove the flower from the old pot. Inspect its root system. Broken, fed or too long roots cut off the sterile tool. Separate locations Push the activated carbon. Leave the tree for several hours in the air - let the wounds be lit and delay. Only then proceed to landing in a new pot.

If you did not find visible damage to the root system, do not disturb the earthen com, and simply pass the plant together with the ground into a new pot, in which there is already a drain layer and a little fresh substrate. Fresh soil pour all the roots so as not to remain in the pot of emptiness. Do not block the root neck. Slightly construct substrate and pour.

When buying a plant in the store, do not rush home at home immediately reset it into a new pot. Let him live with you for a couple of weeks in the transportation container, in a warm, well-lit place. Let it be adapted in the new conditions. At this time, exclude any negative impact on the village, surround it with attention and love. Remember that the young cash trement is very important to feel the positive energy of the room. Only after that you can proceed to the transplant.

If there was a need to transplant an adult large plant, which has a fat barrel and heavy crown, prepare a wider ceramic pot for him, on the bottom of which are two or three stones to drag the porridge, make it stable and prevent the flower drop. Take advantage of the transfer to the support of the support and tie a stem to it. After the transplantation, at the time of fixing the root system in a new pot, put the stem of the treet on top of the substrate with large stones to prevent the fall of Tolstanka on the side. Put the flower in the half-day for a week and do not disturb it, let the roots fasten in the substrate. Then the stones need to be removed.

How to form a croon of tolstanka

If the flower has already reached the size you need, and it is not necessary that the money tree continues to grow, stop replanting it into a more spacious pot. Just annually change in the old pot of the top layer of the substrate.

Formation of money trees

Croon Tolstanka herself is formed in the form of a tree. But you need to know how to crop the money tree at home, because some side branches will grow so strongly that under the weight of its own weight will break. As a result, it will turn out the tree of a completely unsightly form. If it is timely pruning a young plant in a timely manner, you can form a neat and beautiful mini-tree of the original look.

To form a monetary tree, start in infancy when the stem and shoots of gray-green color, and the sections do not leave marks on them. When trimming an adult tree, hemps remain in the places of segments, which spoil the decorative type of flower.

The essence of the formation of the crown comes down to first remove the side processes until the tree is growing up to the desired height: a naked stem should be about 15 cm, and all the plant is 25 - 30 cm in height. Now it is necessary to join or cut off the top with two upper leaves. After some time, four sheets will appear in their place. So go further. As your tree grows, in those places where you want to get new shoots, pinch the upper kidney escape.

Crawling money

Try so that there are no more than four pairs of leaves on each branch of the money tree. If you missed the moment, 6 - 7 pairs of leaves were formed on the branch, trimming over the growth point of the fourth pair of leaves. Scroll suck with a torque coal or cinnamon powder. To avoid bending branches for one side, more often turn the flower to the light of different sides.

The money tree refers to the tree form of the Crasus, grows in the form of a tree and gradually resets the leaves at the bottom of the decisive trunk.

Crane formation of Krassuly

This is how your church should look like: a bolor thick, gray-green. Over time, it will decide from below. From above, it decorates a neat crown of thick leaves of dark green or silver color, with a glossy surface, with a reddish edging or the same tone of stains. The height of the flower may be like you want - from 50 cm. Up to one and a half meters.

Monetary tree Bonsai

Also the monetary tree can be given a view of bonsai. It will take some time, perhaps not one year. At first you should grow a strong tree, whose trunk will reach the thickness you need. Then you will do it dramatically and wait patiently when you grow up new branches. These branches you will cut almost all the leaves - leave only those that at the most ends. So, gradually, you will form the desired crown of your pet, and the money tree will be the main decoration of your interior.


The fat man (money tree) is extremely rarely blooms at home and only in adulthood (about 10 years). On the blossom of Crasus, with a lot of probability, only ideal conditions of detention can be prompted: intensive lighting all year round, long-term cold wintering and regular plants in a new soil. If a miracle happens, then you can see how the money tree blooms. Blossom will continue two to three months.

How the money tree is blooming

So blooms money tree

Numerous flowers collected in loose inflorescences in the form of umbrellas will appear at the ends of young ridden shoots (therefore, the september and pruning for the formation of the crown, you need to do the early spring, so that after trimming these shoots appear, so that they have grown over the summer and ripen to autumn When the laying of flower kidney for flowering for the next year begins). The flowers at the money tree are very small, in the form of sprockets of white color with a pinkish or greenish tint.

The flowering tree will have a strong sweet aroma during the entire flowering period. The blurred inflorescences should be removed so that the plant does not spend strength on the formation and cultivation of seeds. Try to carefully care for your beautiful Tolstanka, and we hope that it will delight you with beautiful bloom.

Reproduction of money trees

Reproduction with cuttings and sheet

Reproduction of money tree stalk

Most often multiplied Tolstanka with cuttings. Even a randomly broken twig can approach you as a planting material. We recommend that the branches do not break down the reproduction, but carefully cut off the stem or sheet cutlets with a clean knife. Switching space when the activated carbon is crowded to eliminate the infection. Give the time to dry the air. The fat man has poisonous leaves, so put the cuttings in such a place so that animals and children can get it.

Then, place the cuttings for rooting in a slightly wet substrate to a depth of 5 cm. If a leaf is rooted - the depth of immersion in the substrate must be 1 cm. It is better to spend this operation in the spring, in March - April. Well, if you arrange a mini-greenhouse for seedlings. As a substrate, use a mixture of peat with sand. The greenhouse needs to be ventilated, moisturize ground with a small pulverizer if necessary. The root temperature is maintained within 18 - 22 grams. Usually, the rooting of cuttings is quickly and without problems. How to plant a process of money? As soon as you see that your young tree began to grow, develop, reached 10 cm, transfer it to suitable in the size of the pot, put on a well-lit place in the half and take care, as an adult plant.

The rooting of Tolstanka in a glass with water

Very often, the cuttings are rooted in a glass with warm watering water. So that the stem did not start, the activated carbon tablet is added to the water. And so that the roots appear faster, the solution of the root formation stimulator is dripping there, for example, corneser or zircon. After the emergence of stable roots, the cuttings can be resettled into its pot.

Reproduction with seeds

Another way to reproduce a money tree is with the help of seeds. This method is less common and less efficient. If you decide to get your copy of Tolstanka in this way, we will help you. Prepare a substrate for sucques, container, seeds. At the bottom of the container, put a layer of wet soil, lay on it the seeds of Tolstanka, cover the cover. If necessary, conduct ventilation and moisturize the substrate with a small pulverizer with warm water. The best time sowing seeds is February. Two weeks wait for the appearance of the first sprouts. After the mass appearance of sprouts, rearrange the greenhouse into a light warm place and organize additional backlight so that they do not stretch. Start moving the container cover, first - for a while, and then completely remove. As soon as sprouts are fixed, they can be transplanted into separate small pots. In the first year, the period of peace is not satisfied with the plant - let it grow and gains strength.


Fascinally sick is extremely rare. She has a rather strong immunity. However, if it is strongly neglected by the rules of its room content - it will get sick. Consider some such cases.

Rinse leaves Tolstyanka

  • If brown spots appeared on the leaves of the plant, if the leaves began to refuse - these are signs of fungal disease. The reason is in excessive air humidity and substrate. For the same reason, the cash trees may have a leaf fall, it can be bald in a short time. The affected plant is treated with a drug - a fungicide, which includes copper. Adjust the irrigation frequency and the quality of the water used.

Fall leaves of money

  • Why fall leaves of money on money? Sudden dropping of leaves in the summer time says that you insufficiently water the plant or water too cold water. If the fat man drops the leaves every two to three years without visible causes - this is the norm.

Tolstanka casting covered with black spots

  • If the flower leaves were covered with black spots, pay attention to the location of the pot. Perhaps he stands on the sun and the plant got a sunny burn. Rearrange it to another place or pronounce it. If the fastest period of rest spent in a dark place, then it should be accepted in spring to sunlight again, gradually.
  • If the money tree has become kept and faded - this is a sign of choking. Plant is hot. Remove it on fresh air or ventilate the room, wipe the leaves with a damp cloth, spray the ambient air with cool water.
  • Why does not the money tree grow? Perhaps a transplant is required to a more spacious pot. Maybe you have not picked up a plant for a long time. Perhaps in the roots wound insect pests, or the roots were simply rotted from frequent and abundant irrigation. Anyway, transfer the money tree to a new pot and a new substrate. If you find pests - treat pre-roots by some insecticide: Aktara, phytodeterm, accility. If there are no living roots - the plant can not be saved. Try to root his shoots or leaves.
  • If brown specks are formed on the leaves, most likely it is dry healing wounds from insects - pests. Cosmetic defect, but nothing dangerous.
  • From excess moisture, the plant barrel can darken. Stop watering. After a couple, the troika of the substrate and the roots in it are well dried, and the crack can recover. If the flower still disappears, remove it their pot, inspect the roots. If they are all black and soft - the flower is no longer saved. Cut the top and try to root it. If only part of the roots is amazed, remove them and all the fiddled parts of the plant. Treat fungicide or crowded coal. Place a new container with a new substrate. And follow the watering mode.
  • Roots can partially donate with a long lack of watering in the hot season (for example, the owners were on vacation). When resumed irrigation, the plant will almost certainly grow new roots if the root rotations did not happen.
  • If the leaves of the money tree became soft, lost the tour, then it looks like insufficient irrigation or the absence of nutrients in the soil. Rather, paint the plant with warm watering water. After watering, if necessary, make feeding fertilizer for cacti or succulents.
  • If you water regularly, the substrate is constantly wet, and the leaves are withering and yellowing - it means that the problem is in the root flower root system. Most likely, the roots began to rot. This may happen for several reasons:
  1. oversupply moisture in the soil;
  2. incorrectly selected substrate;
  3. watering with cold tap water;
  4. Too big pot.
  • If the flower began to stretch or fall into one side, then it lacks lighting. It is urgent to take action, otherwise, with time, the stalk plant bends, and it can break and die.
  • If the trunk of Tolstanka began to swell, the lower leaves be downloaded - check the temperature of the flower content, the presence of drafts and the frequency of irrigation. In addition, fresh air indoors is extremely important for the plant - do not forget to venture regularly. In the warm season, take a plant on open air. And never water the plant with cold water from the tap.

If you noticed in time that the fat man is not healthy, try to cure it. Remove the flower of the pot. Release the roots from the substrate. If you need - rinse them under water. Inspect the roots. Planting the plots cut the pure tool. Ranks treat with integrated activated carbon or cinnamon powder. If the damage is severe-trees with a suitable fungicide. Hold the treated plant for some time in the air - let the wounds will drag on. Then flower put in a new potted pot in a new soil for succulents. Adjust the frequency of irrigation. Use water only resistant or boiled. We hope that you will be able to save your money tree.


A healthy money tree is rarely amazed by sucking parasites - because its juicy leaves contain arsenic. It easily copes with attacks of any parasites. If the tree is weakened due to poor content - for example, the other, dry air indoors, low or high air temperature, weak lighting, then traces of the appearance of unnecessary guests may appear on the money trees.

  • The thin web between the leaves and the stem produces the presence on the flower of the cute tick. To get rid of it, wipe all the sheets with a cotton swab, moistened in alcohol. Also help with garlic or tobacco influences.
  • If a brown or yellowish tuberculk appeared on the leaves - the shields settled on the flower. It is collected by hand with a cotton swab, moistened with a solution of household soap. In addition to the soap solution, chemical preparations of fufanon and phytodeter helps from the shield.
  • If a muddy wool appeared in the sinuses of the leaves, a torment Cherver was settled on the flower. If the dimensions of the plant allow, it should be attributed to the bathroom and wash off there the parasites with a warm shower.

In any case, the appearance of insects is a very disturbing signal. They quickly multiply, form huge colonies, suck juices from leaves and stems. We recommend using special preparations - insecticides, such as Aktara, Akttellik, Phytodener and others, which are a huge set in special stores. Read recommendations for the use of each drug. Perhaps one time will not be enough to get rid of all individuals, their larvae and eggs.


In this article we told how to grow a monetary tree with beautiful and healthy. If you master the simple rules for the care of Tolstyanka - you will drink it on time, feed, bathe, make her hairstyle (trimming), change its outfits (pots) and export in nature, the flower will give you all your best decorative and healing qualities, will become la Decoration of your home, the mascot of his well-being and financial state for many years.

The money tree is very unpretentious, and even a novice lover of flowers will be able to grow it on his window. It is pretty easily pretty easily. There are several ways to propagate a money tree at home:

  • Leaf
  • Cherenk

Landing seeds

  • Tolstanka seeds are better in spring, in March-April.
  • Take small places, make drainage holes in them, pour small pebbles to the bottom to facilitate waste of excess water.
  • Seeds of Crasusles are small, you can land them into the prepared land, just pouring to the surface, or carefully transfer to the tip of the toothpicks wetted in the water.
  • Spray the seeds from the spray gun. Earth must be wet.
  • Cover the film or glass. From time to time you need to remove the film and delete condensate, as well as give the "breathe" seeds.
  • After about a month, shoots should appear.
  • You can transplant small Tolstanka in 2-3 months in a small pot.

The soil

Crasons are not too demanding to the soil. You can simply take a soil intended for succulents or cacti. But you can cook the soil yourself by taking the deciduous humoring and diluting it with coarse-grained sand or perlite. Soil for Tolstanka should be loose and good to divert water.

Which pot choose

Money tree is a fat manner or Crasus. Home care

The root coinage system is poorly grows in depth, so for your money tree, choose a pot wide and shallow.

It is believed that Croon Tolstanka corresponds to its root system, so to get a tree with a lot of branches and leaves, transplant the Crassus in a wider pot.

Best of all, if you choose a heavy ceramic pot with drainage holes - porous ceramics will allow to breathe roots, and the plant itself will be difficult to turn the sweaty wrestle when it is growing. Excess moisture will be output through the holes at the bottom. Prepare and small pebbles for drainage.


If you see that the flower is closely in the old pot, you need to take a transplant. Money tree transplant is best together with a lore land. Gently remove the plant from the old pot, trying not to damage the roots. In a prepared pot, pour drainage pebbles (a clamzite, broken brick or even large pieces of foam), put a cash trees from above and spread around the edges of fresh land.

How to dissolve

After planting seeds in a pot, many small plants will grow. The same may occur with Tolstanka growing separately. The reason for this - its own leaves eased and rooted in a pot. In some cases, there can be quite a few young plants near the parent tree, which sooner or later will become closely in one pot.
