SKU: Crassula muscosa - compact variety Category: Tags: , , , , ,


A wonderful textural succulent which spreads to grow into an intricate bush, reaching around 30cm tall and about as wide, though its size is very variable. It features tiny light green leaves which overlap to stack tightly around stems, which begin erect but droop over under their own weight. Flowers are small and pale chartreuse in colour.

An excellent small scale groundcover that has a mossy look about it, but also commonly grown as a houseplant. It always looks neat and is wonderful for indoor spaces as it does not appear too wild. Stunning in succulent arrangements or spilling out of hanging baskets and easy to care for. Provide a well-draining spot in the garden in full coastal sun to light shade or indoors in a sunny spot. It has low water needs, and should be allowed to dry out between waterings. It does not appreciate being both cold and wet.

Commonly called “Watch Chain” as its interlocking leaves are thought to resemble jewellers’ pocket watch links. Other names include: Princess Pine, Clubmoss Crassula, Zipper Plant, and Rattail Crassula. Native to South Africa and Namibia.

Due to quarantine laws Ezy Care Succulents can only post to QLD, NSW, SA, VIC and ACT. We are currently seeking approval to post to WA, TAS and NT, so please join our facebook group to receive updates of when we can ship to you.


All plants are removed from their pots and all soil cleaned away as this is the safest and cleanest way of shipping. Succulents are extremely hardy, and this will not harm your plants but will just appear "dry and thirsty". Easy instructions on how to repot and care for your succulents are included with every order.

By preparing your plants with bare roots helps comply with quarantine regulations and also minimises shipping costs to our customers, making Ezy Care Succulents a very cost-effective way of purchasing your plants.

All orders are packaged with environmentally friendly recycled paper to ensure safe freight and reduce damage to the plant.


Only the healthiest, top quality plants are selected from the Ezy Care Succulents nursery for your order. The size, colour, and shape of your shipment may vary according to the season, or when shipping to colder areas. All succulents are slightly dried prior to packaging and may look different to the photo. Preparation instructions are included in every order which are specific to the plants that you have ordered, and usually only take a few days to recover.

Even though many of our succulents are known for their agricultural and medicinal uses, all the plants at the Ezy Care Succulents nursery are propagated for ornamental purposes only. Please ensure that you have conducted your own thorough research if you intend on consuming these plants, as we recommend against human consumption.
