Crassula Succulent FlowerThursday, February 18, 2010
I was so glad that this did not turn out to be another rosette of succulent... it's a flower!
Not just one bloom but a bunch...
The bunch of flowers came from a rosette that's really strong.
Normally as the rosette grows taller, the top will become too heavy and the whole rosette will fall. I would have to cut and re-root it by just poking it back into the soil. But this particular rosette grew bigger, stronger and like a pair of conjoined twins.
For the first time after growing this succulent for a few years, flowers have emerged. But of course with a little help from blooming fertiliser ;-)
The flowers took a few weeks to develop.
Below pic was taken three weeks ago when those tiny bunch of flowers started to flourish from the rosette.
