Care Tips for a Jade Plant:

  • Light: Flourishes in bright, southern-facing windows with a minimum of six hours of direct sunlight.
  • Soil: Opt for well-draining soil, ideally potting soil for cacti or succulents, maintaining a neutral to slightly acidic pH.
  • Water: Ensure thorough watering, allowing the soil to dry between watering sessions; reduce watering frequency in cooler months.
  • Temperature: Maintain consistent temperatures, avoiding extremes, especially frost or temperatures below 30°F.
  • Fertilizer: Apply fertilizer sparingly at your discretion, using cactus food once during the summer.

Jade Plant Well Being Signs:

  • Leaf Drop: Indicates underwatering; remedy by watering when the plant appears dry.
  • Yellowing Leaves, Drooping Stems:** Suggests overwatering; allow the plant to dry out completely before watering again.
  • Leaves Turning Red:** Natural response to sunlight or stress; adjust light conditions if necessary.

Pet Friendliness:

Jade plants can be toxic to pets; therefore, it is advisable to keep them out of reach.

Common Pests and Problems:

  • Pests: Keep an eye out for common indoor pests such as aphids, spider mites, and mealybugs.
  • Diseases: Generally resistant; neem oil or horticultural oils can be used for pest control.

The lifespan of succulents, including Jade plants, varies widely, ranging from 20 to over 100 years with proper care.

How can I identify what Crassula plant I have?
