Classic jade plant is also known as money tree because it is rumoured to bring great fortune to its bearer. Regardless of whether or not it brings wealth, it definitely brings fresh oxygen and cleans the air around it. Although mistakenly called a tree, this plant is actually a herbaceous shrub. The 'woody' growths are actually cellulose hardening of the mature plant cells. Even though this plant is a true dicot does not have the genes to produce true lignin, so it can never get woody. Regardless of whether or not it's a tree, it makes a solid addition to any plant collection.
The Plant Care
Bright, direct sun to bright indirect light.
Water weekly to semi-monthly. Allow potting mix to completely dry out before watering. The smaller the pot, the faster the soil dries out. If it's in direct sun, it will need more frequent waterings, as the sun will dry it out faster. Water more frequently during warmer months and fertilize during growth. Do not overwater or keep the soil wet for too long, as this will encourage root rot Remember, these are desert plants- they can go for a while without a drink.
The easiest way to kill a succulent is to overwater it or leave it wet for too long! Love this one more by tending to it less. #independentplant
