Ok maybe the jade plant is not going to show you the money, although people in the past and in some cultures today believe they do. I will leave that up to the individuals beliefs.
Despite the possibility of not providing a person with extra cash, the Crassula ovata (or Crassula argentea) is a great house plant that I still have fond memories of while growing up in my family home. They were propagated left right and center....on every shelf.
|Light-||The jade plant flourishes in good health with plenty of light. If you can provide a few hours of sunshine a day your going to have a happy plant.|
|Watering-||It's best to allow the soil to become dry between each watering which will depend on the time of year, how much humidity and amount of sunlight it's getting. Allowing too much water to sit at the bottom of the pot with the roots will cause them to rot (avoid this).|
|Soil-||A good draining soil mix that is gritty is advisable to use, which is sold and used for cacti and succulents.|
|Re-Potting-||Re-pot (spring - summer) when the plant becomes root bound or the soil needs renewing. A good solid and heavy pot is best to use because Jade plants are well known for being top heavy. A heavy pot will prevent them from tipping over.|
|Fertilizer-||Feed before growing season and after growing season. Fertiliser made for succulents may be your best bet, that does not need to be a high strength type.|
