Crassula ovata ‘Variegata’ - Lemon Lime

Hello everyone. I would like to share an interesting experience I've had regarding my Crassula ovata plant. A little background info: I was at my friend's house visiting and noticed he had a Crassula Lemon Lime. I thought it was beautiful and he gave me a few leaf cuttings. I was able to get it to take root. The plant has grown quite a bit by now and looks very healthy. This is the interesting part - none of its leaves show the lemon lime colouration. To me, it looks like a typical Jade Plant. Has anyone experienced this? I have it growing indoors at the moment since it is too cold for it to be outdoors and it is under T5 flourescent light. The only explanation I could think of is maybe it needs more direct sunlight to get that colouration? Other than that, it's a very healthy plant.

I could take photos of the plant if that will be helpful.

Thank you for reading my post and I look forward to your feedback.
