    Default Crassula ovata

    Nothing awe inspiring here, true, as this is a very common plant. But I like the bit of extra color this has developed. I'm curious as to whether I can get it to bloom if I leave it out until temps really get cold (but not down to freezing). Rot would be my biggest concern. Still if I lose the plant, at least it would be easy to replace.

    Does it get very large? I guess I need to google it and see what size the blooms are.

    you've got a very beautiful crassula! was that a variegated form? i have also a crassula before which get a lot of bright light but the leaves did not turn that way the only error i made was that i didn't keep it on the dry side, always watered now the crassula is already a part of compost

    Plants can get very large. I think the largest I have seen is spread of about a meter in diameter but I know they can get bigger than that in nature. Generally, indoors they stay much smaller. Flowers are small -- each being something in the neighborhood of a centimeter -- but are produced in clusters.

    I believe it is just a "run of the mill" green, not a true varigated. The coloration is due to a combination of degree of light, water and temperature. I can't remember what conditions are supposed to bring out the best color.
