Jade Plant - Crassula Ovata

In Asia, the Jade plant is thought to be a symbol of good luck and thought to activate financial energies. It is a traditional gift for many business owners to place a Jade Plant near the entrance of their restaurants or shops to bring prosperity and success. During the Chinese New Year celebrations, Jade Plants are set on top of stock and investment certificates so they will increase in value during the coming year.

02 Plant Care

Light Jade plants need at least 4 hours of direct sunlight each day. They can handle direct sunlight.

Temperature Average warmth is fine of approximately 60-75°F (15-24°C) but prefer slightly cooler temperatures at night and in the winter (down to 55°F / 13°C).

Watering Keep soil moist but not wet in the spring and summer, when the plant is actively growing. Allow soil to dry between waterings in the winter. Try to avoid splashing water on the leaves while watering, as this can expose them to rot.
