@Sephy have you looked on ebay?

@Sephy I'll let you know if I see any for sale. I know they are hard to get hold of in the usa but I've heard it's a lot easier in the UK. I stumbled across mine in "the cactus shop" in Devon. Just found this. Not familiar with the shop https://perfectplants.co.uk/plants-bulbs/house-plants/cacti-succulents/crassula-buddhas-temple-plants-in-a-9cm-pot-rarely-offered-succulent.html

Are those white things 3d printed little pets for your Buddha's Temple? 😉

14/05/18 so happy with these. The tall one has really perked up in the last few days and now has at least 12 water roots. The lower one is well on the way too! #buddhastemple #succulent-propagating #succulent-rooting #waterpropagation

07/05/18 out of my 3 Buddha's temple cuttings this one has been in pumice ( the other 2 are suspended over water). Had a look today and it does have a small root growing so I'm leaving it be. I left the stem quite long under the substrate level to try and give stability but I'm now wondering if it will be risky for rot.

23/04/18 These guys have perked up a tiny bit but I decided to clear off all dark / black from the stems to prevent rot and will leave to callus for 24hrs (should this be longer?) I am much happier having removed this dead tissue. I am unsure whether I will soak in water, suspend over water or pot into pumice / grit. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. The leaves on the middle plant especially are quite far apart, should I remove them so that I can bury the stem lower?

@Alcurtis93 I've been rewatching your Buddha's temple videos. Any advice?

Could leave for a few days then stick the stems in water and they'll root up well. Then stick in soil and let them look dehydrated again before you water as you'll be sure they're then rooting and growing. There's lots of ways but I'd say that was a dependable one to quickly perk them up without worrying about rot so much

@Alcurtis93 thank you for your help. Would you remove the lower leaves on the middle plant to encourage a more compact shape?

Probably and then cut the stem shorter. Doesn't look great does it
