This hybrid was made by crossing two compact species of Crassula, in order to obtain a cute, “living-stone” plant, resmbling indeed a Titanopsis. Crassula x Celia is hybrid between  Crassula mesembryanthemopsis and Crassula susannae. Small compact growing Crassula forming tight clumps.

Crassula ‘Celia’

The thick gray-green leaves are closely arranged, and the leaves are a bit smooth and plump. The small granules of the leaves are densely covered with grayish white particles, just as some people sprinkle the condiments on the cross-sectional area of ​​the leaves, which is very pleasant, inheriting the leaf shape of the drifting island and also retaining the hypertrophy of the stars. Crassula ‘Celia’ opens clusters of milky white flowers, flowering in spring. The pollination of the plants must be cross-pollination, the flowers are relatively small, and the pollination should be particularly careful and patient. 

Crassula ‘Celia’

Crassula ‘Celia’ needs a sunny and cool, dry environment, resistant to half yin, afraid of water, not hot and humid. It has the habit of growing in the cold season and sleeping in the summer. From September of each year to June of the following year, the growth period of the plant is different (the environment of the flower friends is different, and the growth period is also long). If the light is insufficient, the leaves of the plants are long, and the plants growing in the sunny place are strained.
