Crassula ‘Dorothy’ is a fantastic dwarf or miniature hybrid between the two other Crassula species which are Crassula susannae and Crassula deceptor. It is a very slow growing cultivar with thick rosettes that clump readily. The rosettes shows a beautiful design and are larger than those of Crassula susannae, but still quite small. The white flowers appear in autumn (seldom in spring too) and each rosette that is even hardly big enough develops an inflorescence, so the plant flowers abundantly.
This species branches freely, producing a tight clump. It grows best in the spring and autumn, outside of the hottest part of the year. It is sensitive to overwatering, but otherwise easy to care for. It forms a clump, which looks good in a shallow pan or a bonsai pot.
Care For Crassula ‘Dorothy’
Crassula ‘Dorothy’ will form tiny rosettes growing in a dense cluster. It will require a free draining compost and good light to keep the plants compact and encourage leaf colour and flowering. It do well in succulent gardens or in a window sill. Regular water in summer (water only when the soil dries), but reduce watering during winter month , fairly drought tolerant elsewhere. Crassulas are sensitive to mealybugs.
