Planting and care

Jade plant can easily be propagated by leaf or stem cutting.

Stem cutting :

  • Select a branch on the jade plant that is healthy and free from disease.
  • The branch should be 3 to 4 inches long for rooting a jade plant.
  • Use a sharp, clean knife to cut the selected branch off the plant.
  • Allow the cutting to dry. The wound on the jade plant cutting you have taken will be wet and will invite disease if you try to root it wet.
  • Allow the jade plant cutting to rest in a dry, preferably warm, spot until a callous develops (about one to two weeks).
  • In order to further make sure that disease does not infect the jade plant cutting, you can dust the open wound with rooting hormone, which will also contain an anti-fungal compound.
  • Once the cut on the jade plant cutting has dried, place the cutting into a potting mixture made of half vermiculite or perlite and half soil.
  • When rooting a jade plant, water sparingly so that the potting mixture is only damp until the jade plant cutting takes root.
  • After it has rooted, you can treat it as you would a normal jade plant.

  • Leaf cutting :
  • When starting a jade plant from a leaf, start by selecting a healthy leaf from the plant.
  • Snip the leaf from the plant.
  • Lay the jade leaf onto a potting mixture of half vermiculite or perlite and half soil.
  • Water the potting mixture once after you lay the jade leaf down and water sparingly until the leaf puts out roots.
  • Once the leaf has taken root, the leaf will start to grow plantlets, or tiny plants, from the edges of the leaf that touch the soil.
  • Once the plantlets are a few inches tall, you can treat them as normal jade plants.
  • Sunlight: Full to partial sunlight
    Soil: Well drained and fertile soil
    Water: Moderately
    Temperature: 15-30 degree C.
    Fertilizer: Apply any organic fertilizer

    Caring for Elephant bush

    • Keep the Jade plant in a place where it can get at least 4-5 hours of sunlight.
    • Allow the soil to become dry at the top to the touch between watering and do not over water.
    • Jade plant should be repot once a year at the beginning of spring.
