Jade is a must-have succulent for any succulent collection. There are many varieties of crassula; however, crassula ovata is one of the most popular. This plant, if left to grow, will eventually develop a leafless trunk that will give the plant the look of a tiny tree. This makes jade an ideal plant for bonsai gardens or tabletop zen gardens.
Like all succulents, jade needs plenty of high, bright indirect light. If the plant does not get enough light, the stems will grow long and stretched. Also, the leaves will probably start to yellow and fall off the plant. Water the jade when the soil is nearly dry. Being a succulent, this plant has fleshy leaves that store water. This makes the plant quite forgiving if you skip a watering. Water when the soil is nearly all dry. Plant this succulent in container gardens with other succulents or cacti to create a serene ensemble for a coffee table or as décor for a bright, sunny balcony. Feed with a well-balanced fertilizer for house plants. Feed only after watering the plant; this will avoid root burn.
