We have a money tree, Crassula ovata, I think that has lived in our office for at least ten years. Recently the leaves and some stems have dropped off but there are still some strong and healthy leaves there. I have just discovered the trunk has split about three inches from the bottom and inside is it a soft and black mush. There is what appears to be new growth from the bottom, that is to say there are branches growing beneath the split. We have a saying in ouroffice, like the ravens at The Tower, the day the money tree dies is the day our company dies. Can anyone give us hope to save our tree?
