Potting A Jade Plant



 2635
Even though we all know that potted jade is basically easy and simple to grow, we wanted to provide a few helpful tips to help ensure you have super success.
 
As expected the most important factor when growing jade in a garden planter is water, temp, light, pottery and fertilizer.  Never let a jade plant dry out completely.  Water on a schedule, like when the top of the soil is just dry to the touch.  If your potted jade starts dropping leaves then too little water was used and you need to increase.

Pick a flowerpot or garden container that has a drain hole.  Do not let the roots sit in standing water or they will rot.  We like terracotta because it breathes and is the most healthy type of flowerpot but you can use colorful talavera or ceramic.  Try not to use plastic. They are basically not that great for most plants.

Place the flowerpot in the sun because they need full sun in order to grow properly. Fertilize with a water soluble fertilizer.  Don't fertilize dry soil so make sure that it is moist first.  That's pretty much it.  Didn't we tell you it would be easy to do!
