Crassula Buddha's Temple

I have had my Crassula Buddha's Temple for 3 years and it just gets taller and taller.
Can I just cut off the main part and will it shoot out to become multi-stemmed?
How near the base would I cut.
The top I can just let callous over and then pot up.
I have heard all the comments on its shape,length and its ability to stand up straight or lean (as it is doing now)  ;) so no sniggering at the back!!!!!!!

  • i am sure it would work, I would cut off the top above the first few leaves. Remove the bottom leaves from the top section and let it callous and then replant it. You will then have two plants. 

    To keep them growing straight you need to rotate them every few days so that different sides get the light.

    Thanks,I shall do that.
    I do rotate regularly to stop it leaning but think it has just got a bit to heavy now!

    I have now bitten the bullet and chopped the top off and allowing to callus over for a few days before potting up.
    Because it as so long I have decided to cut into 3 pieces and see what happens,I may end up with 4 plants!
