What time of year do these flower ? How do I persuade my 10 year old plant (that I took from a flowering plant) to flower?  Please help before I loose patience and throw it out!  Thank you, Maggie

I have cheated and have posted a link that seems to answer your question. I hope you find it useful

Thanks Daintiness.   I will now start to feed it with Tomorite. The writer of the article keeps his in a greenhouse - the best I can do with mine is a coldframe so that's where it can go for now.  Fingers crossed.   Maggie

I have several Crassula - what's the best way to deal with a top-heavy Crass. arborescens? Can i root the stem if I chop off the top of plant or do I replant the top bit? Thanks for the tip on feeding Tomorite to these plants.

I have one that flowered last year. after having  it for many years!

It was growing too big for it's pot. so i just cut it back a couple of inches

It lives all year on a sunny windowsill.

But they like to be outside in the sun for the summer. if possible.

that's interesting, Patty.

What month/time of year did it flower?  Maggie
