Crassula nudicaulis

Crassula nudicaulis also known as Devi's horn, is a perennial succulent plant forming several basal rosettes with glabrous leaves collected into a head at the crown of the root and amidst them an annual flower stalk surmounted by clusters of small greenish flowers.
Root: Thickened taproot
Rosette: Close to the ground forming a sort of head
Flowers: Small, cream-coloured or greenish, which often fail to open as broadly as other species do
Blooming season: It flowers in spring and sometimes again in the latter part of summer.

Cultivation and Propagation: Crassula nudicaulis are of easy cultivation and relatively low maintenance, which makes them a good houseplant, and can be an excellent subject for the beginning succulentophile (they can grow easily on window sills, verandas and in miniature succulent gardens where they are happy to share their habitat with other smaller succulent plants, or in outdoor rockeries). They are spring and autumn grower (summer dormant).
Watering: Provide some water all year around, during the hot summer months, the soil should be kept moist but not overly wet. During the winter months, water only when the soil becomes completely dry. Wet soil quickly causes root and stem rot, especially during chilly winter months, but can re-root if taken care of. No water should ever be allowed to stand around the roots. Low ambient humidity is always needed.
Sun Exposure: Full sun or bright, filtered light with ample airflow to stay compact, but avoid direct blasting sun in mid summer (with sun exposure the leaf develops a nice brownish tint), they do not do well in full shade as they tend to etiolate, fall over and rot easily.
Hardiness: Will survive mild frost if kept dry (hardy as low as -5° C) they should be protected from frost to prevent scarring. USDA 9b-12
