I understand! πŸ˜‚ If you want to try a 0.5-1-1 succulent fertilizer mixed with 1/3 cup water, try it a few weeks after repotting. The miracle grow liquid succulent fertilizer works best for me (you can find it at Walmart or Amazon). I have a jade too and I only water her very sparingly because they’re just so sensitive sometimes. I hope this helps and give Shrek my best wishes! 😊
@JoyousPinoak Thank you so much! I’ll definitely be trying that!
@oshiposhee I meant to type Johnny Cash. Shrek is a baby jade I just finished typing details on. It has been a long day πŸ˜‚πŸ€¦β€β™€οΈ
@JoyousPinoak I get that πŸ˜‚ I named him Johnny cash and then my husband changed it to Shrek so that was my bad πŸ˜‚
@oshiposhee I also remembered I just tried planting my jade in a terracotta pot and putting a layer of gravel on top of the soil. More resistant to overwatering, no new fungus gnats, and she is thriving! It may also be something to consider bc it seems to have helped mine a lot!
@JoyousPinoak ohhh that’s good to know! I might have to try that and see if that helps absorb some of the water.
@SoigneJellypalm Yes! Terracotta pots are my go-to. I think this lil’ guy is gonna do just fine 😊
@JoyousPinoak Oh that’s good! And reassuring. Thank you for the help! I will have to keep you updated ☺️
@oshiposhee Yes! Please do! 😊
I would recommend to water Jade only when you see that the leaves look wrinkled, also use pot with drain holes, and gritty succulents mix.
Keep your husband’s hands off the jade plants! Or maybe put him in a different pot! πŸ˜‰ ..
