Hobbit Jade Plant
Crassula ovata 'Hobbit'

Originally from The Lord of the Rings South Africa, Sam loves quick-draining soil, bright light conditions, and the occasional watering. Too much water too often doesn't sit well with him, so maybe offer a beer? (Please don't give your plants beer).

Bright, indirect light and some direct sun is ideal.

SM: ~8" tall and a 4" pot.

Pro-tip: Regular pruning will result in thicker stems and compact growth. Cut within a quarter inch of another leaf or branch. Text us at 646-430-8699 for tips!

Doing well so far

He bounced out of the nursery pot during shipping, so I potted him up faster than I would have liked. Once I find a terracotta pot the right size, I’ll put him in his more permanent home. Other than that, he’s doing great

Sorry to hear that he escaped his nursery pot on the trip to you, but so glad he's unharmed and doing well. We would recommend a 5-6" planter for this guy!

Sam

I loved Sam so much, I ended up buying a second hobbit jade plant and named him Frodo! Sam was a lot larger than pictured and had done quite a bit of growing. He arrived in perfect, healthy condition and is thriving at his new home.

Not Small

I ordered a small and received what looks like a medium plant. Disappointed by the look of it.

Hey Emily! We're sorry to hear that you're disappointed by the size of your plant. We base the size of our plants off of the diameter of the pot, as this determines the plant maturity. If you believe you received a 6" wide pot instead of the 4" wide pot, please email us at hello@heyrooted.com so we can look into it for you. Thanks!
