Plant Care

Sunlight:

  • Jade plants need at least 4 hours of direct sunlight each day.
  • Young plants should be kept in bright, indirect sunlight; large, well-established jade plants can handle more direct sunlight. 
  • Kitchens and offices with a south-facing window are typically great spots with just enough light, as are western-facing windows.
  • Jades are not frost tolerant.
  • Keep plant away from cold windows and areas with a draft.

Watering:

  • In the spring and summer, when the plant is actively growing, it will require more water.
  • Water it deeply, then wait until the soil has mostly dried out before you water it again.
  • In the fall and winter, the plant may go dormant, causing it to slow or pause growth entirely. During this time, it won’t need much water. 
  • Try to avoid splashing water on the leaves while watering, as this can expose them to rot in a humid environment.
  • Jade plants can be sensitive to salts in tap water, so water with filtered or distilled water if your tap water is not ideal.
  • If the plant starts to drop its leaves, if leaves start to shrivel, or if brown spots appear on the leaves, it is an indication that the plant needs more water.
  • If leaves become squishy and waterlogged, the plant is getting too much water.

Pot:

  • Jade plants don’t mind being root bound in a small pot. In fact, keeping them root bound will keep the jade smaller and more manageable.
  • Repot young jade plants once every 2 to 3 years to encourage growth. With older jade, repot once every 4 to 5 years or as necessary.
