ADD A BEAUTIFUL FITTED POT (OPTIONAL)
We love the amazing looks of the Jade necklace vine! It’s got so much individuality and makes a great addition to any houseplant collection! The Jade necklace vine or Crassula Hottentot is a unusual, trailing variety of crassula. As it grows tall, it begins to spill over, making a great hanging plant which has small, star-shaped flowers in the winter.
Native to South Africa where it sprouts from the ground, this houseplant will be happy potted in cactus compost in a hanging pot or on a shelf, allowed to trail down over the sides of the pot.
They prefer bright but indirect light, and in the right conditions they can produce white or pink flowers, but we can’t guarantee flowers will come. Cressula jade plant is a very attractive succulent even without flowers.
If you’re interested you can even propagate this plant easily and have lots of little Hottentots!
If you do want to give this wonderful vine as a gift, we’ll arrange a free, handwritten card if you just note your gift message at the basket stage of checkout. We’ll omit the paperwork too so the price won’t be seen, it’ll just make a lovely surprise!

Seaweed provides a delicate blend of growth hormones and micronutrients that is perfect for all indoor plants. Houseplants grow throughout spring, summer and autumn, so they will benefit from organic fertiliser during this time to encourage flowering and keep them healthy and well.
