Jade, the most popular plant that can be planted everywhere, indoors, even outdoors.
Both places have similar methods, but have differences at some parts.
It’s easy to grow but there’s some problems that are coming out.
It’s maybe easy, but it’s crucial and it’s the key to keep your life.
Below I will give you the problems that are usually face and I’m gonna give you some below..

Rotting Root Problem
Don’t ever giving it too much water and and the root system, which is shallow and not favorable to too much water, stand in a soil that is not porous enough to drain the water you add quickly enough, or maybe you gave it too much water.”Hesse Satori, B.S. Horticulture & Plant Genetics, Michigan State University.
Never give it too much water and the root system that is shallow and not conducive to too much water will stand…
…in a soil not sufficiently poreous to drain the water you add quickly enough or you may give it too much water.
Watch this article to know more about it.
If you water it too much it’s gonna be a big problem.
The Jades (Crassula), is a succulent plant a desert-like plant that takes sufficient water into its leaves for some time to do well.
There’s a point where overwater is very easy and there’s no turning bac if it done.
If Roots stay too wet and then the plant reacts to protect itself and starts to drop leaves.
It’s all right to water it through but then let it dry again.
Leaves Shrinking & Falling
It’s a quite of a problem.
The real problem is that there is hardly any water in the leaves.
There are two possible causes and contrary treatments are needed:
Perhaps the plant didn’t get enough water.
The plant may be too watery to kill the roots.
A plant in jade needs very well draining soil.
Give it very little and very rarely water if the soil has water.
This gonna be a big problem if you don’t take it seriously.
You should try to care as much of the plant as possible by cutting and rooting pieces if you have overwatered.
Take the plant to a garden store, or florist that may have a soil hygrometer if you cannot tell, if your Jade has overwatered.
This is an example of a jade that has lost or was pruned.
This is not abnormal and illustrates, as it can be cut back vigorously.
New growth will be generated throughout the plant.
In mid-winter each year my mother recommended that the entire plant…
…be removed less than 3 or 4 degrees of growth we got jade plants 5 feet tall.
Soil may be too dry or too wet.
Well if you do not understand the underlying mechanisms, that does not appear to make much sense…
It doesn’t help you to understand what you should do to solve the problem.
Maybe this can help to make this confusion clear.
The main thing that gives the plant almost any plant steepness.
Turgidity is moisture in tissues of stems and blades.
Succulents, of which jade is one depend mainly on the structure of the tongue and leaf holding water…
…these are one of those adaptations which permit them to live in areas of scarce moisture.
If the plant does not have enough moisture the tissues begin to crumble become droopy and wrinkled and soft.
It would occur quite obviously if the soil was not sufficiently watered.
However, it is not clear that the same thing could occur if it is too wet.
It is because the moisture in the plant moves to its roots.
The roots absorb and transmit to the rest of the plant water and minerals from the surrounding soil.
Roots, however, are also a living part of the plant and need oxygen.
The air between the soil particles stays full of water, if the soil remains too wet for too long…
…the roots have no access to the oxygen.
They have and are weakened or damaged.
Moreover, wet, airless soil helps anaerobic bacteria and harmful fungi grow.
These are responsible for what we refer to as root rot.
What that means for your drooping jade plant is that damaged, dead, rotting roots cannot transfer water to the rest of the plant.
The leaves and stems get no water and all become soft and drooping.
So what you need to do? To find out first whether the ground is dry or wet.
Simple-peasy, just stick something into the ground with a pencil an electronic
moisture meter or a bamboo kebob skewer.
Push it all the way down the pot not only upwards.
You can read it from a measuring device or in the reverse pull the sensor up and run it….
…between your fingers and feel it’s dry wet or somewhat damp.
So what are you doing?
To find out first whether the ground is dry or wet.
Water when the soil is dry until the drainage holes run down.
The jade plant has dropped in its leaves when the soil is dry enough for sufficient time.
You can put the plant in a water bucket for a few hours so the ground…
..will become thoroughly dried.
It could be too dry to absorb well.
You have more work to do when the soil is wet or damp.
You must first dump the plant out of the pot so that rotted radicals can be sought, which must be cut off.
You can cut it back into healthy tissue by means of scissors soft, brown or mushy.
You want to pull the soil away gently from its roots to look at it and the soil is full of wickedness…
…so you need to rid yourself of it and repot fresh soil.
In the end…
When your plant has been safe in new soil, water it well until the drain hole passes through the water.
Put it near the window in a brightly lit spot.
Don’t drink again until the soil is nearly entirely dry.
Test it as described above, check it after a week and then almost dry every few days after it.
Keep on, and if it can recover, the plant can recover.
You can lose all that but don’t be discouraged just get another and try again.
Make sure you never water the jade until the soil is nearly dry until, you reach the bottom of the pot.
To prevent you from the problem…
Tips and Trick
Quite a problem right to take care of the jade, here’s the tips for ya:
- Before you pour more water let the floor get dry. Learn to test the moisture of the soil so that you know it’s dry. You can obtain an electronic humidity gauge, move it into the ground, see what the reading says, read “dry.” You can also use a thin wooden skewer or a skewer to pull the kebob into the ground, pull the skewer up and run between your fingers to feel it. It ought to be dry, you can lift the pot for weight when you determine the soil is dry. After a few times you will be able to assess the moisture simply by lifting the pot.
- Water enough to give all roots access to water when you water. To do that, let your pot sit in the river for an hour and absorb the water evenly until you get a good run of 1/2′′-1′′ from the water box. After that time, you can pour out your excess. if you want, but you really don’t have to.
- Place a plant, possibly a south or west window, where it will get as much light as possible. If you can add an electric light the lighter the happier the jade is.
- Sparingly fertilize with a fertilizer mixed in 1/2 package strength. Fertilize 3 times a year when the plants have high light: fertilize once or twice a year when medium light is present.
- Use a cactus mixed perlite, 2:1 soil: perlite ratio if you are repotting. But don’t repot more than every few years and don’t repot the plant if you get it first.
Let’s summarize all of the things that have been learned.
Jade is easy to grow, but sometimes it can bring you up some problems.
From rotting rot, fallen leaf, and many more.
So don’t worry if your jade have problem, maybe it’s the time for you to take care of it
Jade plant is a cool plant for houseplant fit for indoor and outdoor environments.
But also it can cause a problem if you do not care for it properly.
Now do you have any questions?
Or is there anything that you want to add about kind of problem jade that usually occurred?
