Crassula 'Goblin Fingers'
(Grand Forks, B.C.)
This plant has the weirdest leaves. They are tubular, and yes, they do look like Gollums fingers. They're rather spatulate (wider at the top end) and all goblins are green, aren't they?
There are a wide variation in the shapes of the leaves. Some are flatter and shorter, others more twisted, some just tubes with reddish tips. Whichever shape yours comes in, enjoy the infinite choice of nature!
Like all Crassula, they like to be dried out before their next watering, and kept in a slightly too small pot. This encourages them to grow, and although I've never heard of this plant flowering, it will also trigger blooming.
This guy would be great as a bonsai succulent - if you try this, let me know.
