With the correct balance of water and light, a Crassula ovata can be a plant that will stay with you for generations. This is also a very easy plant to propogate--almost every part of this succulent can make new plants.
Succulents are a group of plants that have some parts that are more than normally thickened and fleshy, usually to retain water in arid climates or soil conditions. While they do need water to survive, they can endure extended periods of drought. Nearly all cacti are succulents, but not all succulents are cacti.
Care and Maintenance
Keep it in very bright rooms (direct sun if possible), and water only once the soil seems fully dry. This is a fairly drought tolerant variety but it does need consistent watering to stay healthy and keep growing.
