About Finger Jade
This variety of Jade is known for its comical ogre-ear like leaves. The Jade plants they originate from have been used for centuries across cultures for their beauty and healing abilities. Tree-like succulents, these houseplants can live with you for your entire life, or longer—up to 100 years! Jade is commonly used in the traditional practice of feng shui, creating energy to harmonize people and their environments—and encourage the flow of money. 💸

Most potting soils come with ample nutrients which plants use to produce new growth.
By the time your plant has depleted the nutrients in its soil it’s likely grown enough to need a larger pot anyway.
To replenish this plant's nutrients, repot your Finger Jade after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
What other plant parents say
This plant is so sensitive… so sensitive that I got annoyed with it and neglected it with spite. Although it grew quickly at the beginning, it stopped growing abruptly and began being terribly dramatic after a few weeks. This could be due to the fact that it dries out quickly because little soil can fit in this super cute pot (from Groovy Plants Ranch, highly recommend: 5 stars). However, this may have been my fault because I chose a needy, thirsty plant for my rainbow hanging pot. Overall, do not buy this plant unless you want to provide it with small sips of water and tend to its every need for at least 40 hours a week.
