Help me identify this plant #succulentidentification It was sold as Crassula nealeana 🤨 but I’m not sure if it’s Crassula perforata asp. KOUGAENSIS http://www.crassulacea.ch/de/artikel?akID=31&aaID=2&aiID=P&aID=2883 or Crassula perforata Baby’s necklace http://www.crassulaceae.ch/de/artikel?akID=31&aaID=3&aiID=B&aID=2599. Or something else 😂

Hmmm, links don’t work properly 😞 and autocorrect doesn’t like ssp.

I think this is possibly tom thumb which is a smaller variety. The markings on it also is quite pronounced and very bright compared to Crassula perforata. Some succulents you have to measure. Here is the ICN link for Tom Thumb so you can compare: http://www.crassulaceae.ch/de/artikel?akID=31&aaID=3&aiID=T&aID=1453

After much consideration and research I’ve decided to wait on the ID... thank you @Yollymac , everything I read on Tom Thumb says leaves are 4 x 5 mm (or 1/4”) the largest leaf on mine is 25 x 18 mm! Averaging about 15mm so I’ll let it grow a little longer 😊

If it’s larger then it’s Crassula Perforata. ☺️ The first of your links.
