Deceptor is Latin for "cheater". The plant is named like this because in nature it grows between quartz stones, very well camouflaged and therefore not easily seen.
Locations where it can be found are in Namaqualand SW - Africa: Lüderitz, Knersvlakte, N - Richtersveld until Bushmanland.

Crassula deceptor has been used several times for making hybrids, sometimes being the father, sometimes as the mother.
Examples: Crassula 'Moonglow', Crassula 'Dorothy' and Crassula 'Frosty'.
