Crassula ovata f. monstrosa is known by many names, including: Fluted Jade, Golem Jade, Finger Jade, and many more. This plant is actually a monstrose form of Crassula ovata. Monstrose growth forms are most common in cacti and succulents. This is caused by damage to the apical meristem: a plasm, bacterial, or viral infection, which causes a hormonal imbalance in the plant. As a result, the plant cannot control its own meristems, leading to all of the dormant buds exploding with growth. In this plant’s monstrose growth, the leaves roll and fuse into themselves creating the fluted pattern.
