🔆 Light
The Jade plant flourishes in good health with plenty of light. If you provide a few hours of sunshine a day, you will have a happy plant.

Give your plant a turn every few days to expose all sides to light for even growth from all sides.


💧 Water
It’s best to allow the soil to dry between waterings, depending on the time of year, how much humidity, and the amount of sunlight it’s getting. Allowing too much water to sit at the bottom of the pot with the roots will cause roots rot.

To give your plant the absolute best, room-temperature rainwater and bottled spring water are your best options. Any water containing sugar or salt will hurt your plant!


☁️ Humidity
Naturally survives in quite humid conditions, although you will please them with filtered-water misting couple of times a week.


🌡️ Temperature
Room temperatures of around (15-24°C) are ideal. In winter no less than (10°C).


🧴️ Food
Feed bi-weekly with diluted liquid fertilizer. A fertilizer made for succulents may be your best bet; that does not need to be a high-strength type.


🐾 Toxicity
Non-toxic to humans and pets.


 Additional Tips
Propagating is achieved with leaf or stem cuttings which are placed into a soil mix, then waited until they show some growth. Before placing them in the soil mix, you will prevent potential problems from the sap seeping out by allowing them to dry on a windowsill for a few days or so.

⛔ HIGH RISK
● Do Not Overwater! This will cause leaf drop and root rot that eventually could kill the plant. The worst thing you can do regarding watering is "give it too much".
● Make sure your plant is not placed near Heat or AC source. It is best to keep consistent room temperature throughout the seasons and not turn off Heat or AC when away or traveling. The best temperature ratio for almost any plant is (15°C-24°C).
