The stem brittleness of Crassula muscosa may become an asset when the rainy season forms new plants of the dropped-off stem bits, aided by a convenient patch of silty mud. Long ago only one plant, it has become a thriving colony. The soft, many-leaved, olive-green stems grow erectly and branch.
The photo was taken next to a dirt road in Dwarsrivier near Ladismith in the western Little Karoo (Vlok and Schutte-Vlok, 2010).
