Hi everyone,

I'd love some advice about my crassula morgan's beauty. I bought it as a cutting, with a small root system. I planted it straight into some damp mulitpurpose compost and gave it a good water. I learnt this is not what it needed and part of the plant died, becoming really mushy. I then replanted it in succulent soil and really drew back on the watering, but i think a lot of the roots dyed in that initial planting.

I've had it for 3 months and its not taking root. So I've replanted it again in a much small pot and took off some main leaves to expose more of the stem of the plant. (if that's what its called)

Wondering if this is the right thing to do, or is there another process to encourage it to grow roots? I've included some pics. the pot its not in is the the size of the stem? Also you can see the leaves, they dont look very happy :(

Ive scrolled the internet and there's not much detailed advice out there about this lil beauty. I really hope to get it going! Thank you for reading :)

BIG THANKS

Darcey

Just leave it in the pot, and be very patient, and don't try to water it back to life because that will kill it. Those plants hold a lot of water, and if you give them just a little too much, they will fall to pieces. They have nowhere to store the new extra water. Let the soil be more on the dry side than the wet side at all times.
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌
