Almost a year later its grown,yet its also thinned. I have it in the same pot. It seemed to struggle in the winter wet and developed many black spots on every leaf. I've never had any Crassula do that before. Its also seemed to blanch in color. My guess is- this would do much better in ground and I would say whoever filled in "9b" for this Crassula was being generous. Anything below 32f might do it in.
It may not be a great slam dunk plant like most Crassula's..its maybe for more advanced C&S people.
