Where to Plant
Unlike most succulents, Krussula ovata ‘Hummel’s Sunset’ is not suited to areas that get colder than 20° F (-6.7° C), so if you live in a zone with proper freezing temperatures, you should plant this succulent in a container that can be brought in the house when it gets cold. This plant thrives in a full to partial sun environment, but can also survive in a very small amount of shade.
It is recommended that you plant your flowers in a part of your garden that receives 6 hours of sunlight each day. Indoors, plants should be placed in a room that gets lots of sunlight, such as a room near a window that faces south.
How to propagate the “Hummel’s Sunset”
Cuttings It is simple to propagate them from leaves. Simply cut cleanly from the mother plant, let callus form for a few days until the wound has healed, then place on soil or in water and wait for roots to form. To find water, roots normally develop first, followed by new leaves.
This might take anywhere from a week to a few months, and there’s no need to water propagating succulents because they’ll get all the nourishment and moisture they need from their mother leaves, which will eventually shrivel up. Once the original leaf has dried and turned crispy in texture, gently remove it; if it does not come away readily, you risk injuring the infant plant.
Seed The wind is responsible for dispersing the tiny seeds. Mix fine seeds with well-draining soil, spread out in a thin layer, wet the soil, and cover with plastic until germination occurs.
Jade is a tolerant grower that is ideal for novices and low-light environments, yet it can return to green when not exposed to the sun or heat. Pests, illness, deer, and neglect don’t have a chance against it. Simply provide it with well-draining soil, frost protection, and heavy watering when the soil is absolutely dry.
Outdoor bushes that have reached maturity do not require any watering. C. ovata can even shrink during droughts and expand after being rehydrated. In the winter, jade produces dense clusters of white, star-shaped blooms that may be propagated by cuttings.
