H.Huber & H.Jacobsen, 1952
Crassula marnieriana is a slow-growing small plant reaching a height of 15–20 cm. The thick rounded leaves are green with red edges. They are tightly stacked along the stem and store water, as they are covered with a cuticle to limit the evaporation. An inflorescence with small star-shaped pink-tinged flowers may appear on mature plants in winter if they are given proper conditions of temperature. This plant prefers direct light and as a houseplant is very easy to maintain.
