Crassula ovata, also known as the jade plant, is easy and simple to care for. Many people enjoy growing jade plants in their homes and offices, and they are considered to be symbols of good luck.
Never let your jade plant dry out completely, but also do not water too frequently either or you may end up with root rot. Rather, water when the top of the soil is just dry to the touch. To grow properly and not become stunted or leggy, they need full sun. Provide well-draining soil as well, and trim dead or damaged sections as needed. Over time as the plant matures, the stem turn from green to bark-like. They are extremely easy to propagate, with each leaf being able to root on top of soil.
