Oblong, fleshy, shiny, evergreen leaves. Leaves may acquire red tints when grown in direct sun. The jade plant is an evergreen with thick, shiny, smooth leaves.

Planting and care

Crassula ovata flourishes when provided with plenty of sunlight. However, 4-6 hours of sunlight is also sufficient for it. It requires well-drained sandy to loamy soil. Make sure it is well drained and water is not getting logged in the pot. Feed any organic fertilizer once in a week or two in diluted form.

In wild jade plant main method of propagation is reproduction. Branches regularly fall off from wild jade plants and these branches may root and form new plants. Environmental factors such as temperature and humidity affect the speed at which the roots and new plant develop. Foliage usually appears soon after new roots have formed.
