Buddha's Temple

When we went plant shopping, this succulent with densely stacked leaves caught our eye. Finding out the name, we just had to buy it. It's a Crassula hybrid and commonly called "Buddha's Temple". The stacked and up turned leaves are reminiscent of a pagoda. Doesn't it look so serene and zen looking? They are slow growers and the ones pictured here were cultivated from single leaves and took several years to mature to this size. 

We took this plant with us to the Grow! Festival and someone purchased it as a gift for their yoga instructor back in the East coast.  Yup, sometimes a plant just totally matches up with the new owner.
