About The Plant

Also known as vining jade or weeping jade, is a succulent plant. It prefers warm temperatures. This plant is characterized by it  thick stems, as well as its flat, teardrop-shaped leaves that stick out perpendicular to the stem and grow in an overlapping pattern like shingles. It produces blooms of bright orange flowers. Trailing jade is used as a groundcover, though in common usage, it’s a popular choice of houseplant due to its lush appearance. As an indoor plant, trailing jades look particularly striking in hanging baskets that allow the stems to hang down and also planted as an outdoor plant.

Planting And Care

Sunlight

Soil

  • Soil should be well drain and porus.

  • Perlite and other materials can help aerate the potting mix, reducing the potential for root rot.

Watering

  • Poke your finger/plain small stick into the soil to check the moisture.
  • Apply 1 cup (Approx. 50 ml) water when the top soil (3-4 inch) in pot feels dry to touch.

  • Do not overwater the plant.
  • As a rule of thumb, water the plant thoroughly in the summer and reduce watering in winter and rainy season.

Plant Protection

  • Remove dead, infected or damaged plant parts and discard them away from the plants.
  • For any insect attack or disease, you can use Neem oil, Eucalyptus oil or Citrus oil spray for primary treatment.

Pests

  • One of the primary pests that afflict trailing jade is mealybug.
  • If you notice a white, cottony substance where the leaf meets the stem, remove it and wipe the area clean with a small amount of rubbing alcohol.
