Notes re Crassula rupestris: Mini Maxi and Jelly Bean

Recorded at Matjiesvlei, also at Gamkaberg Nature Reserve:

  1. A bigger a smaller version of classic C rupestris. They co-occur, although there could be a slight difference in preference when it comes to elevation. Both in image, first link above.
    2.Another plant is Crassula cf rupestris ‘Jelly Bean’. It also co-occurs with Mini and Maxi. It does not seem to fit into any of the three known subspecies of C. rupestris.

There was a bit of vindication for me when I discussed this with Louis Jordaan of Minwater. He has also noted Mini and Maxi and even had a photograph of a Jelly Bean on his tablet to show (GCBR Forum, Ladismith 26Feb2019).

A bit from:

The Cloud
by Percy Byssche Shelley

I am the daughter of Earth and Water,
And the nursling of the Sky;
I pass through the pores of the ocean and shores;
I change, but I cannot die.
For after the rain when with never a stain
The pavilion of Heaven is bare,
And the winds and sunbeams with their convex gleams
Build up the blue dome of air,
I silently laugh at my own cenotaph,
And out of the caverns of rain,
Like a child from the womb, like a ghost from the tomb,
I arise and unbuild it again.

(written late 1819, early 1820)
