Dear All: I know this plant as dawrf / miniature Jade plant..
NOT RELATED BOTANICALLY to the "real" jade plant...
Both make nice Bonsai habits, there in lies the rub... confusion...
but look closely and the differential diagnosis is not so difficult...
the bark is distinctly different and internodes etc etc...
And if you the flowers once will never forget them...
Crassula ovata puts on a spectacular show of masses of white flowers
on green peduncles
Portulacaria afra gets sparse small pink flowers on pink peduncles .
Univ of Hawaii has nice pictures
SO dawrf jade plant is : ** Portulacaria afra , Family:
and the "real" Jade plant is : ** Crassula ovata , Family:
Thanks for showing this plant..
