This is a variant of C. sarmentosa, with serrate leaves and a yellowish/white midstripe on the leaves.

This is a trailing scrambling plant that can become "leggy" when potted. Snip long trailing tips and plant in the pot to give a fuller look if desired.

G. Rowley shows several variants in his book "Crassula - A Grower's Guide".

One knowledgable collector has suggested the name 'Cupid' to echo Rowley's naming of C. sarmentosa 'Comet.'

This may be found as 'Variegata' or 'Variegatum' which have been deemed invalid by Rowley.
