Crassula capitella, commonly known as Crassula 'Campfire' or Crassula capitella subsp. thyrsiflora, is a succulent plant native to South Africa. It is a popular choice among succulent enthusiasts due to its unique and striking appearance.

Crassula capitella 'Campfire' has rosettes of triangular, fleshy leaves that grow in a stacked or pagoda-like arrangement.

The leaves are typically green or gray-green in color and have red or orange tips. The vibrant coloration is more pronounced when the plant receives adequate sunlight.

Light: Crassula capitella 'Campfire' thrives in bright light conditions. Place the plant in a location where it can receive at least 4 to 6 hours of direct sunlight per day. A south-facing window or a spot outdoors with partial shade is usually ideal.

Water: Like most succulents, Campfire has low water requirements. Water the plant deeply but infrequently. Allow the soil to dry out completely between waterings to prevent overwatering, which can lead to root rot. During the winter months, reduce watering even further.

Humidity: Most indoor environments have humidity levels ranging from 30% to 60%. This range is generally acceptable for this succulent. Avoid excessively humid rooms or areas, such as bathrooms or kitchens, where humidity tends to be higher.

Temperature: This succulent prefers moderate temperatures ranging between 65°F and 75°F (18°C - 24°C). Protect it from extreme heat or cold as it can damage the plant.

Toxicity: This Plant is  generally considered to be a non-toxic plant. According to available information, it is not known to be harmful to humans or pets if ingested. However, it's always a good practice to keep plants out of the reach of curious children and pets to prevent accidental ingestion.

Origin: Crassula capitella, including the 'Campfire' variety, is native to South Africa. It is commonly found in the Eastern Cape Province and parts of the Western Cape. It is well adapted to arid and semi-arid regions, where it grows in rocky or sandy habitats. Over time, this succulent has gained popularity worldwide and is now cultivated in various regions as a decorative plant due to its attractive appearance and ease of care.
