Crassula perforata ‘Hoshi Otome’, commonly known as “Star Maiden,” is a cultivar of Crassula perforata, which is part of the extensive Crassulaceae family. This succulent is admired for its unique growth pattern and ornamental appeal, making it a favored choice for succulent enthusiasts and collectors. The name “Hoshi Otome” translates to “Star Maiden” in Japanese, reflecting the plant’s star-like appearance and delicate beauty.

The ‘Hoshi Otome’ cultivar features tightly stacked, small, cylindrical leaves that spiral around the stem, creating a pattern that resembles a string of beads or a tower. The leaves are variegated, displaying shades of green with creamy yellow to white margins, and can develop pinkish hues when exposed to bright sunlight, adding to its visual interest. This compact growth habit and leaf variegation set it apart from the more common green forms of Crassula perforata.

Crassula perforata ‘Hoshi Otome’ is a slow-growing plant that prefers well-draining soil and is best suited to conditions that mimic its native habitat, with plenty of light and minimal water. It thrives in bright, indirect sunlight but can tolerate direct sun exposure for part of the day. Like many succulents, it requires watering only when the soil has completely dried out, making it an excellent choice for water-wise gardens or indoor collections.

This plant is ideal for container gardening, rock gardens, or as part of a succulent arrangement, where its unique form and coloration can be fully appreciated. It can also be propagated easily from leaf cuttings or offsets, allowing enthusiasts to share and spread this beautiful cultivar. While ‘Hoshi Otome’ is generally easy to care for, it is sensitive to overwatering and cold temperatures, so protection from frost is necessary in cooler climates.
