Simple Pruning, Propagating and Protecting Tips for Jade Plants

The jade plant is a popular succulent houseplant with fleshy, oval leaves and thick, woody stems that resemble small tree trunks. With just a little care, it can grow 3 to 6 feet tall, but it does so slowly, growing about 2 inches per year.

Originating in South Africa, jade plants were thought to bring good luck to their owners, which is why they are often given as housewarming gifts. As they are normally only grown indoors, they can be brought home or started at any time, either at a professional nursery or through propagation.

Pet owners should be careful where they place a jade plant in their homes. All parts of the plant are toxic to dogs and cats.

Jade plants are generally undemanding and easy to grow but are susceptible to high humidity and a selection of diseases. As with all succulents, overwatering is sure to be fatal, so it's best to choose to keep the soil too dry rather than too wet.

Jade plants also need a lot of light to develop their full potential. However, if the right conditions are met, you will be presented with an impressive succulent that can be easily propagated, giving you plenty of additional plants to spread around your home.
