That’s incredible! My neighbor’s is just slightly smaller than yours and is flowering. I have several in the ground and none are flowering. They’re still around 1 1/2 ft tall, though. How long does it take to flower?

The regular jade plant (Crassula obovata) which grows wild everywhere, especially on the sides of the mesas and canyons have been in full bloom since December. They loved the December rains. Unfortunately, no rain since December. : ((

Thanks Hywel!
Andy- thanks too- but I think your plant should start soon.
I had these in pots for years and just thought "Plant them out and less care". I really did not expect them to reach this height. They were supposed to be a short ring around the Cordyline.

I’m guessing it can grow as tall as a jade plant in time (7 to 9 ft). Jade plants are fast, but this Gollum variety is pretty slow.
