Don’t overwater these guys!! They thrive in dry soil, dry air, whatever! The common black spots people experience is sometimes from high humidity, especially for plant lover homes where we are used t…
I love my jade! They are SO hard to kill and it never complains, it is 15 years old this year and I think everyone should get a jade! Also they are good for feng shui if you are into that :)
I love how cute it looks. It’s a perfect succulent to have in your home that is easy to care for (doesn’t need a lot of water). It grows pretty consistently. I love how cute it looks
I didn't like this plant initially and kind of neglected it but when I actually started taking care of it well she reacted so well to me and grew like crazy so I like her a lot now.
love this plant because it survives everything!!!! it’s the kind of plant that you can leave when you’re on vacation and not have to worry about (as long as it’s close to a window)
It’s a really fast grower. When I first got it in early February it was a decent size but now I’m already considering reporting it cause it’s grown so significantly since I got it
Super easy plant, I’ve had it for a while stopped taking care of it so it went dormant but once I moved it to another pot and started keeping it happy it’s been growing like crazy
This is my garden where I put fallen leaves to grow back. I like the large stems because they grow a new succulent from each node.
Never any problems with this one. I’ve trimmed her back several times to keep her from getting leggy and she keeps growing!
Since it’s a succulent it can survive you also don’t have to water it a bunch. Some leaves might fall off though

Jade love being close to bright, sunny windows 😎.

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 Jade after it doubles in size or once a year—whichever comes first.
