What kind of fertilizer do you have? Just follow the instruction from the container of the fertilizer. In general, succulents don’t need fertilizer. You can ignore it.
@Phyllid 10mg is a truly tiny amount being 0.01g or 0.0004oz. You can dilute 1g (0.03oz) in 1L (2pts) and then 1ml (1/4 teaspoon) is 1mg.

But the app estimates the feed amounts as each fertiliser is different so I would follow the instructions on the bottle. For something as small as your jade i may go half strength to be safe and let it get used to it.

In all fairness I have barely use fertiliser on my jades and succulents. Maybe once a year, if that. And the compost in the soil does provide a fair amount of nutrients especially as quite a few have fertiliser pellets in them. As they are used to poor nutrient soils.
