Perforata or rupestris?
It usually goes the same way every time. I stay doing something and she comes to check what I am up to. If I ask her nicely to sit net to the plant (which in reality I move the plant next to the princess, because obviously she will not move), she will just ignore it, or walk away.
But as soon as I place it the way I want and start to shoot - she is all over it :) This is usually the time I manage get some shots of her, while making sure she doesn't flip the pot or starts munching on the leaves.
It is a Crassula, that's for sure. But as I started to look for the exact name I got completely confused. Is this one perforata and the one I thought was perforata (and I have shown before) is actually rupestris?
Knowing how mixed info people dump into the net I was getting all kinds of results and all the crassulas looked the same 😱
The two though have a bit different leaves. My "old" is more chubby, the one here has more slim an longer leaves.
This is what Wikipedia tells me though:
I will follow this info then. The one I have doesn't bloom like it is described rupestris does, so I guess I got this one right.
The one here didn't bloom yet. So maybe this is rupestris?
Either way.. I learned something new :)
I dont remember where I got this one from. It was some tiny cutting I got an for the first year I kept it inside to make sure it grew roots frost. In the fall I moved it to the balcony, so it gets some sun an rain. Now it got this pretty amazing re colours. Not sure if it is from the warm sun during the day, or the still quite cool nights we had until few days ago.
Looks amazing though! I hope I don't kill it before I see the flowers :p
I am thinking now of cutting the tips an planting it all over. It will look more compact and can start branching... hopefully.
Isn't the red colour an the tiny posts gorgeous?
It does look much better in the big closeup than with naked eye, but I still enjoy it a lot.

I like this one, and the color and the dots on it. Plant one for S, she will cherish it till the last chewy leaf!
Haha grumpy and bossy.
She already nibbles on other plants... This one is mine!
Hah, you think so! 😏
Excellent shots, as always, but I love the ones with your cat! Her coloring is such a perfect background for color, and she's very photogenic!
Thank you :)
They did turn out pretty good together indeed.
Definitivamente muy lindos. Las flores naturales desestresan mucho. 👍🏻
Thank you! :)
I really like when you combine your amazing diva cat with succulent plants!!!... Fantastic!
Thank you! She is a really nice addition to the photos... or succulents are addition to her photos.. Hmm

No, you will not kill it, it looks lovely. And Ferdinand has to smell some flowers 😉
I will not kill it..
I will not kill it..
Ferdinand will make sure I dont :D
You will not kill it ;))
The little neighbour with his clarinet will practice every day, and they say plants love music :D
Beautiful details and above all the perspectives of the images. I like how you took advantage of the depth and background blur. But the first two with the cat are fantastic, the moment you captured is very much alive and the cat's eyes hypnotize me. My best regards.
Thanks a lot! I had to be fast with the kitty. She changes her mind really fast :p

I love that your lens captures those little red dots on the fleshy leaves of your succulents. They look like tiny droplets trapped inside the leaf.
Your cat (although she doesn't mean to pose) has the look of a face model 😄.
She is used to camera and doesn't really pay attention to it. Lucky me :p
It just seems to be the way things are... cats and plants. She does provide a lovely backdrop, though.
Marvelous detail and patterning on the leaves, when you truly "get down inside" the plant.

Yea.. sometimes she just sits there and I get the furry background :)
The best combination. Those colors 💗😻
I like them too :D Both!
You see, this scares me.
What if you kill her? I hope not.
I loved the first picture and I'm already looking for that succulent for myself.
Then I'll have none :p
But I grew this one from just one little cutting and if I cut it, I will have four.
Hope you find it! It is a nice one :)
Oh, if you see what happened to me. I came home right now and all my plants were on the floor, the pots were cracked. I think my succulents are going to die :(
I don't know what happened, it must have been an animal that knocked over the table where they were. What a great sadness I feel. Tomorrow I will try to save them.
Hello dear friend @ewkaw good day
How photogenic is your princess, apparently she loves to pose for the camera
I love succulents, it's something I want to incorporate into our garden. It is good that you have learned something new, and have made the correct identification.
Beautiful shots, I appreciate you sharing
She is super photogenic! :D Thanks!
The photos are very good 💯📸. It is always good to learn something new.
Thank you :)
I learned something too
Nice. I didnt even know they did have different flowers.
Haven't seen your silver princess in a while, such a gorgeous cat. That first photo is quality 👌
