Distributed as ISI 2004-17 :

This unusal sport is derived from C. ‘Bably’s Necklace, ISI 1073, distributed in 1978. Australian nurseryman Rudolf Schulz noticed it when propagating his ‘Baby’s Necklace’ and described it in the Australian Succulent Review and Newsletter, Vol. 3 (1), Feb. 1993. It differs in its smaller, rounded leaves and upright stems. It is so different, in fact, that I doubted its origin until a few branches of ‘Baby’s surprise’ reverted to ‘Baby’s Necklace’ in our nursery.”
