This is possibly the largest flowered member in the Crassula family and certainly has some of the brightest flowers. Interesting hybrids with this and other members of the genus were created by Victor Reiter and are still being grown by Ed Carmen. Tacitus bellus itself has rose-red flowers over an inch across held nicely above the plant. The plant is easy to kill from over-watering and must be in a fast-draining mix and protected from winter wet and cold. It is most often treated as a house plant.
