Planting & Care

1. Planting: Dwarf Jades need five to six hours of bright indirect light daily and should be kept out of direct sunlight which can burn the leaves. The ideal location for an indoor plant is a south-, east-, or west-facing window with shade. When moving outdoors, gradually expose it to sunlight and protect it from direct sunlight. Use soil mixes blended with gravel or perlite, but not sand. Keep the temperature between 61 and 71 degrees Fahrenheit, and bring it indoors before fall frost if left outside in summer.

2. Watering: Water dwarf jades indoors only when the soil has dried out slightly. Insert your finger into the top inch of soil to check for dryness. Water moderately until water comes out of the pot's bottom drainage holes. Avoid overwatering and remove excess water in the saucer.  Dwarf jades need more frequent watering outdoors during summer. Watch the soil moisture and water moderately when needed.

3. Fertilizing: Feed dwarf jades monthly with a standard houseplant fertilizer or succulent plant food from spring to autumn. Stop during winter and restart in late winter with a 50% diluted fertilizer once a month.

4. Pruning:  Prune plants when the soil is dry, but before watering. Remove dead/dying leaves and shape as desired. Wait a few days before watering again. Repot dwarf jades when roots clog drainage holes. Wait a week after repotting before watering to prevent root rot.
