Crassula exilis subsp. cooperi is a branched succulent forming dense cushions and often covering large areas of soil under rocks. The stems are with fine spreading hairs. The leaves are dark green leaves, speckled with small dots and a contrasting purple underside, up to 4.5 cm long and up to 1 cm wide. Leaves turn a beautiful purple/grey over summer .The flowers are small, cup-shaped and white to more or less pink in color
Crassula Exilis is easy to grow, but they are susceptible to mealy bugs and fungal diseases. As with all succulents, over watering is sure to be fatal, so err on the side of too dry rather than too wet. Never let your Crassula sit in water. If you water from beneath by letting the plant sit in a saucer of water, make sure to pour off any excess water after a few minutes. It is generally started by division, offsets or leaf cuttings. Plants can be easily propagated from a single leaf: sprout leaves by placing them into a succulent or cacti mix, then covering the dish until they sprout.
