Maintenance

Crassula argentea needs full sun to partial shade all year.  If you want the plant to flower it needs a sunny position with at least several hours of sun every day. If it does not get enough light, the stems will be thin and break easily. As with all succulent plants that love sunshine, provide a little shading from direct sun on scorching hot days in summer, otherwise the leaves may burn.
