Types of Houseplants

Crassula
Jade plant, Silver dollar plant

These are easy to grow succulents. They can last many years and grow into miniature trees.

Care

Do best with four or more hours of direct sun, but also seem to do well in bright, indirect light. Moderate temperature is best, but are tolerant of a wide range. Allow soil to nearly dry between waterings.
