Re: Crassula arborescens not looking well

I also think it looks very dry and thirsty. Is it grown indoors in a warm room? If so then it will need much more water than you have given it. Personally I'd repot it and water it more. I would also remove all of the old leaves, it will grow new ones and look better. Good luck!

Re: Keeping my cats away from the plants

Long experience has shown me that your latter option is the only one which will work, keep the plants away from the cats!

Re: Crassula time

Those are lovely photos Mike. I've enjoyed this thread, it's made me think about the sheer variety within the genus. I just checked Plant Heritage and see there is a National Collection in Hampshire, must try to visit when such things are possible again.
Here's my C. ausensis recently

Re: Looking for dwarf Gasterias

Hi Mat, I think I will be able to remove a small offset OK, but it will be small. If you e mail your address, and the correct spelling of your name (!), I will post it off next week. Enjoy!

Re: Looking for dwarf Gasterias

I can probably find a little offset if you like that armstrongii Mat. Here's a nice Gasteria which seems to be growing slowly, might be one for you to look for IMG_1312.JPG I bought it a few years ago from Terry Smale, when he gave a talk at our branch, which he kindly did almost every year. For new...
