Interesting Plant: Crassula plegmatoides

Crassula plegmatoides

Crassula is an amazingly diverse genus and this Crassula plegmatoides is especially cook looking. This plant seems to be synonymous with Crassula arta, if my research is accurate, and more information can be found under that name. The Pinterest link was originally linked with the “arta” name.

Crassula is a large genus of succulent plants containing many species, including the popular jade plant, Crassula ovata. They are native to many parts of the globe, but cultivated varieties originate almost exclusively from species from the Eastern Cape of South Africa.

Crassulas are usually propagated by stem or leaf cuttings. Most cultivated forms will tolerate some small degree of frost, but extremes of cold or heat will cause them to lose foliage and die. — Wikipedia
