Succulent: (Crassula sp.)

Unread postby Neil Crawford » Fri Jan 02, 2009 10:41 pm

Heres a succulent that we're not sure of, does anyone know this one?
We've tentatively called it Crassula capitella, and it's from Hogsback in February
Thanks for your help

The first one is a crassula sp., when I go back to work on Monday I will get you the name of the species.

Hi Price,

The first one, is as naturelover indicated, a species of Crassula; unfortunately for me difficult to give a specific name because of several similar-looking species.

Nice photos :clap:

The first is Crassula ericoides, the other is Crassula pseudohemispherica
