Crassula hybrid, possibly deceptor x falcata. Winter grower that can lose it roots/rot in substrate that is too moist.

Great looking and common hybrid of a Crassula deceptor and Crassula falcata that forms thick, sturdy, compact pagoda-towers that are nearly perfectly rectangular. Prone to rot in cold right at the base, but can reroot if taken care of.
