Description

Dwarf Jade Plants (Portulacaria afra) are succulent houseplants, which makes them fairly resilient and easy to grow indoors—plus, they’re long-lived. With their thick, woody stems and oval-shaped leaves, jade plants have a miniature, tree-like appearance that makes them very appealing for use as a decorative houseplant. They live for a very long time, often being passed down from generation to generation and reaching heights of three feet or more when grown indoors. They are best propagated by taking cuttings. Although stem cuttings are the most common method of propagating house plants, leaf blade cuttings are the best method for jade plants. One of the reasons jade plants are so well-liked by indoor gardeners is their relative immunity to disease. The most common insect problem with crassula ovata is mealybugs, which can be treated by gently wiping the leaves and stem with a cotton swab dipped in rubbing alcohol.

Sunlight – Dwarf jade requires at least five to six hours of indirect sunlight and can tolerate partial shade.

Watering – Dwarf jade has very low watering needs. When watering, let the soil dry slightly out before watering again.

Plant Care – Dwarf jade is a low-maintenance houseplant. Stop fertilizing during the winter and restart the monthly fertilizing in late winter with a 50% diluted fertilizer.
