Plant Care Guide

Full Sunlight


South-facing windows would be a perfect spot in your home to give your Jade at least six hours of direct sunlight a day. Sunlight helps promote Jade’s vibrant green color.

Frequent Watering


Watering needs for Jades change throughout the year as the plant grows actively during the spring and summer and is usually dormant in the wintertime. It is important to pay attention to the needs of the plant because overwatering can be the fastest way to kill your Jade. In their native climate, these plants are used to receiving heavy watering followed by a drought. So, if it gets overwatered it can often make the plant susceptible to root rot. Give the plant more waterings in the summer because of their growing activities and the warmer temperatures. Be sure to keep the soil moist but not too wet, water again when the soil begins to dry. Reduce your watering to once a month in the winter as the plant typically goes dormant. Another watering option is placing the jade plant into a saucer of water to water the plant from underneath. Just don’t let your plant sit in water too long.



Jades are in the succulent family, so they love a well-draining neutral or slightly acidic soil that’s developed for cacti or succulents. Fertilize sparingly, it is recommended to only fertilize when they start growing once again, typically in the summertime.

Average Humidity


Jade plants can be sensitive to temperature, if too warm they will drop their lower leaves and go into dormancy. If they are too cold, then they will not grow. Temperatures below 30 degrees Fahrenheit will result in death.

Additional Notes

Leaves can turn red when they are exposed to a lot of sun, it is not harmful to them. Redness can also happen when the plant is stressed from lack of nutrients, water or temperature change. It can be difficult to diagnose but try to resolve sunlight last if you do not like the red leaves.
