Variegated Bear's Paw Plant

This little plant, a variegated Cotyledon tomentosa (Bear's Paw Plant) has been slow to develop over the last year. Last see on MG here, the plant seems to have favoured growing a plethora of small soft furry leaves instead of putting on any appreciable size. 

Trying to remedy this, I have now re-potted the plant in fresh compost. During the procedure, I discovered the root structure was very poor, so I am hoping the different growing medium will have a positive effect on the Cotyledon. I have also changed the location of the Bear's Paw in the house, so it gets more indirect sunlight and am keeping my fingers crossed that, as Spring rapidly approaches, I have given my rather cute Bear's Paw a better opportunity to thrive. Finger's crossed.
