Q. Summer dormant crassula umbella

I have 2 seedlings of this species, which are dormant and hopefully not dead. Do they need complete dryness (and warmth) during dormancy, or should I be giving it a tiny sip of water every few weeks?
Thanks,
Rick

They do need to be watered while dormant, especially so if you are in the hotter climates.

Yes. It is a crassula. It can be hard to pin down the exact species, but I believe it to be a subspieces of Crassula schimperi.

This appears to be a species of crassula, which is related to the jade plant. These succulents are easy to care for and have th same requirements as most succulents.

This is, most certainly, a type of crassula. This is the jade family. There are so many cultivars, and many of them are very hard to tell apart so pin-pointing the exact cultivar will prove difficult, but they all have very similar care.

This article will tell you how to care for jade plants in general. This will apply to almost all forms of crassula: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/houseplants/jade-plant/jade-plant-care.htm
