Crassula species nova Abel Erasmus Pass
syn. Crassula setulosa
This new and yet unnamed Crassula species was found on top of Abel Erasmus Pass in the Leolo Mountains, South-Africa, where it only seems to grow in pockets of eroded boulders.
In habitat the biggest rosettes are less than one centimeter, in cultivation they grow up to nearly two centimeter in diameter.
By the time more and more rosettes grow out and together they form a lovely dark green, mossy, half ball shaped cushion.
Another characteristic fact are the relatively long hairs that grow on the edges and upper surface of the leaves.
A sunny position and relatively dry circumstances give the leaves a brown-red tint, as shown on the pictures, that will disappear again after a good watering.
