The jade plant (Crassula ovata) is an easy-to-care-for succulent that is considered a lucky charm in many parts of the world.

The attractive shrub with its large, thick leaves has been popularly cultivated as an uncomplicated houseplant for many decades.. The jade plant develops within a few years from a small, single-shoot miniature plant to a tree up to 3 ft (1 m) tall with a thick trunk and strong branches.. The leaf edges, in turn, are often reddish in color, but not always.. Many people do not even know that a jade plant can develop a profuse bloom with numerous filigree flowers.. In addition to good drainage, the jade plant needs a wide and heavy pot, such as clay or ceramic.. Large plants need more nutrients than small ones, while specimens growing in humic substrate need to be supplied more sparingly than jade plants growing in mineral substrates.. As long as the jade plant stands in a sufficiently bright location and is cared for there according to its needs, pruning is useful at most for maintenance purposes.. Thus, pruning ensures that the shrub grows more compact and denser due to the increased formation of branches.. You can root the branches, preferably cut in the spring, both in a jar of water and directly in a container with a growing medium.. For a leaf cutting, all you need is a leaf, which you place on a pot of moistened substrate and wait for new roots to develop from it.. However, if you want the plant to bloom, you should place it outside during the summer and in winter at about 50 °F (10 °C) with only a little water and without fertilization..
