Attractive miniature Crassula hybrid between the species Crassula deceptor and Crassula susannae.
This probably spontaneous crossing is named after Dorothy Dunn from San Diego, employee of a cactus nursery.
'Dorothy' is a very slow growing cultivar with thick, densely stacked leaves.
The rosettes are larger than those of Crassula susannae, but still quite small.
For your reference: the pot on both pictures is 5,5cm (2") diameter. On the first picture the plant was recently watered, so the leaves were sucked full of water.
The white flowers appear in autumn and each rosette that is even hardly big enough develops an inflorescence, so the plant flowers abundantly as you can see at the picture below.
