what’s wrong with my jade?
i’ve watered her but one stem has just flopped and all the leaves are falling off, the rest of the plant seems fine though.

@lilliandxrson is the stem broken anywhere?
That stem might have root rot, it looks a little darker then The rest. Maybe clip it where it’s healthy, let it callous, then plop it back in. One of my rescue jades is doing the exact same thing
@lilliandxrson I agree with @Jilliebeanstalk on this.
I would clip the stem where @Jilliebeanstalk suggested and propagate the clipping and leaves.

I agree with Jillian!
Hi! Welcome πŸ‘‹πŸΌ πŸ’šJade Ovata's can be a bit tricky... I have a HUGE one and several off different sizes and ages.

They really dislike damp soil for too long and don't like drastic changes in their environment - BUT they CAN acclimate to many different growing styles.

From the look of your plant I'd say it needs more sunlight (gradually exposing) and less watering.

If the leaf drop continues after those changes I'd repot her asap.

I prefer terracotta or unglazed clay for my Jades. They also don't like to be watered with tap water... I can see some white spots on the leaves, which are mineral deposits possibly from the water or soil... they prefer distilled water or you can leave filtered tap water out overnight for residual minerals and chemicals to evaporate before watering.

Also don't stress too much, it will work out everytually with some tinkering... I have saved many Jade Oata's from near death and they propagate very easily too from stem cuttings.

Hope that helps! πŸ™‚ πŸ’šπŸ’™πŸŒ±
