What other plant parents say
Okay, my spouse had this Jade plant in the basement & I finally managed to rescue it & bring it upstairs to a window spot. It was definitely dying but after repotting it & getting rid of the parts that were already dead & rotting, this plant bounced back pretty quickly. They’re sold as low-light plants, and we do have one in a low-light room as well, but the ones I have in full sunlight are doing the best by far. This is a really cute little plant!
My two jade plants have been in a garage in 46 degree Fahrenheit weather for a few weeks, just brought them inside and they’re still doing fine. Just make sure you use a good soil with no bugs, because i didn’t do that. i’ve been treating it with cinnamon water when watering. it’s staying strong with no more bugs! my bird bit a piece off a while ago, and i just stuck it back in soil and it started to regrow!!!
