Aren't they lovely? Are they pale blue Angela? The Crassulas I've seen in flower in the Canaries didn't look nearly as lovely as this!

Is it growing indoors? Crassuls ovata (Jade plant) grows wild here in San Diego, especially in canyons. They're all in full bloom here, right now. Some can grow more than 2 m (6') tall.

It's inside, no way would it survive outside....

A brother of mine gave me a tiny plant just a few days ago. I've never grown it before so I looked it up on Wikipedia & it seems you can get it to flower if you leave it to dry out at the end of summer & put it in a cold, frost proof, place & then it should start to flower at the start of winter.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Crassula_ovata

The bit about its flowering came from the Spanish page of Wikipedia - it's not specified in the English language page. There is a bit more information in Spanish than in English!

Flowering

To stimulate it, you must stop watering completely in the autumn. The combination of shorter days, cold nights and lack of water for several weeks will produce flowering around the beginning of winter
