Here is the leaf of a money tree (Crassula ovata). The leaves are thick and rubbery. The regular dots on the leaf are apparently stomata. Native to South Africa and Mozambique, the money tree grows worldwide in homes and is known for requiring little care.

Equipment used: Canon EOS Rebel T5i with a standard zoom lens (EF-S 18-55 mm).
