These succulents have the most adorable looking grey leaves, which are rounded. These leaves can get as long as 3 inches and are really lovely.
As with many succulents, you’ll see that as they receive more sun, the coloration around the edges of the leaves intensifies.
The Crassula Arborescens plant can reach a height of 4 feet and resembles a little succulent tree or shrub.

Xerosicyos danguyi, also known as the silver dollar plant, silver dollar succulent, penny plant, coin plant, and other names, is a cool and attractive plant. There are numerous names for this plant, many of which are also common names for other species.
The Cucurbitaceae family, which the silver dollar succulent vine is a member of, has its origins in Madagascar. Fun fact: This plant is related to the cucumber and squash families. It is expanding quickly, especially outside. Because I purchased a cutting from Etsy, mine is currently very small, but the plant can eventually reach heights of 12 feet and a width of 6 feet. It probably wouldn’t ever grow this big indoors, but outside.
Due to the shape of the plant, the leaves are its main selling point. They are positioned opposite the tendrils, orbicular in shape (round, like coins), very fleshy, flat on top and convex on bottom, with small but noticeable petioles, and greyish green in colour. The leaves have a light green tint and are not meaty when they are quite young; fleshiness develops with age.
The flowers are typically seen on huge plants and are not particularly appealing. They are grouped in a variety of axillary inflorescences that show up in various stem regions. They are tiny, with four yellowish-green segments on the corolla. It is a dioecious species; some plants have male flowers while others have female flowers; both are required to produce seeds.

water:When the substrate is totally dry, add water since it is prone to rotting in the presence of too much moisture. Only water it during the winter months when the leaves start to wrinkle.
Pests do not frequently attack the string of coins, however scaling insects can occasionally be seen. Overabundance of water in the substrate is its principal .
