In a classic terracotta pot Jade can produce a big houseplant.
Jade plants are succulent houseplants that make themfairly durable and easy to grow indoors.
Most important thing, Plant need lightning to grow.
See how your jade plant is cared for Jade plants are decorated as a home plant and have a thick,
woody stems and oval-shaped leafs with a small tree-like appearance.
They live for a long time, are often passed from one generation to the next and grow indoors to higher than three feet or more.
In most homes, jade plants are well adapted to the warm, dry conditions.
In the growing season (spring, summer), it is important to keep the plant watered and dry in the sleeping season (fall, winter).
But the soil is permitted to dry out fully between watering also during the growing season,
because jade is very susceptible to rot.
In areas with mild dry climates all year round Jade plants can be cultivated as landscape plants.
They are highly sensitive to cold damage, so it is preferable to grow jade in containers, indoors at temperatures below or freezing, if it is under 50 °F (10 °C).
The cold can be damaging the Jade itself. If you don’t know, take a fast guide from this page
Where to put?
In addition to being beautiful and decorative plants have several advantages for your home.
Good lightning equals to good growing of your plant.
You can also be good for air purification in order to remove toxic agents…
..you can also improve your health and concentrate your attention…
….if your plants are located in an office or at the school.
How do your plants get the most out of them?
Don’t ever put your plant out of light.
Remember lightning is the key!
Well, one indication of maintaining your households happy is that they are placed inside the home.
Plants are generally capable of resisting warmer or colder climates…
…and short-term water surplus or shortage.
If you want to make the most of your plants, however you need to put the water…
…and nutrients in the right climate to survive.
Still didn’t believe that the lightning is important?
Let us hear the story from Suki!
Here’s the story…
One day, after I back from last holiday. Back to my cozy apartment…
Everything looking fine, until I realize something happens. When I look into my Jade…
….I forgot to move it, I just leave it on my room. Without not enough lightning…
I should put this near my window! Why I am not doing that before I go!
Geez. Why I am not realize this before, now I need to learn how to bring this plant back to life…
Which Rooms Work Best?
Every houseplant in your house has one thing in common.
All of them need the sun but the amount they need is different for every plant.
Don’t just think about your indoor plants.
It does not mean that the plant is best for your housing because it fits into the décor of a certain area of the house.
Think of questions like. Which room in my house gets most sunlight?
What are my windows facing in the direction?
Where are my heater?
Where are my heaters?
How about my house’s average temperature?
This gives you an idea of the areas that work best when you locate your household.
How much the light for Jade need?
Cacti and suculents require continuous day-to-day sunlight.
Foliage plants take approximately 8 hours of daylight.
The amount of lightning is determined by the plants that you grow so we recommend that you research specific plants.
The Light Guide!
Light is food for plants. Plants literally eat the sunlight. So for them to do well they need as much sunlight as possible. If you [give them] low light, it’s like putting your plant on a diet.”Christopher Satch, plant scientist, instructor at the New York Botanical Garden
Good lightning is the fuel that powers our houseplants.
It’s the vital ingredient needed for photosynthesis to take place and without it, growth is limited, slow or non existent.
In a typical home, the type of lightning you find varies substantially.
The drawing below gives you a glimpse of what a typical home could be.
Note how the positioning of doors and windows is important.
You will have to think and see how the sun is going about your room and how it’s changing during the day,
how the lightning levels are.
If you don’t have plenty to do, or if you have no choice but to pick a darker spot,
natural lightning can instead be replaced by artificial lightning. However, if you are using artificial lightning
you will need “growing light” or “plant light.”
You are not going to go away using a normal table light.
The purpose of these lights is to stimulate plant growth, by emitting a photosynthesis appropriate electromagnetic spectrum.
However, they are specialized and they will also be a drain in your power…
…supply in addition to being moderately expensive to buy.
In winter, for example, when the natural lightning is limited, we believe artificial lightning are great temporarily…
…but at other times of the year you really need to look for natural sources whenever possible.
You can place the plant anywhere you choose when using artificial light.
However, you would need to consider placing in more detail when using natural light.
Let us take a closer look at this.
For your Jades, and it is free and of the best quality.
North Facing Windows
Windows which face North never get sunlight coming through them.
If the window is facing North East or North West you’ll get some in the mornings/evenings…
…especially during Summer.
However even then for most of the day, you’ll have the typical North facing aspect.
There isn’t anything inherently wrong with a North facing aspect providing…
…your plant doesn’t demand partial or full sun as a lighting requirement.
Certain plants will absolutely thrive in this position such as Aspidistra’s English Ivy and many orchids.
North facing windows also provide the most consistent levels of light…
…throughout the day, so if you’re looking to grow begonias, or a foliage plant this could be the best spot for them.
The rooms that these windows belong to also tend to be the coldest.
Without any sunlight this natural heat source is nonexistent.
This goes hand in hand however, and the majority of plants, that thrive in these locations also do so because it’s cooler.
East Facing Windows
It’s a good spot which a lot of plants will do well in, and others still, will adapt to The Sun always rises in the East…
…and therefore the East facing aspect gets the first weak rays of sunlight in the morning.
Depending on the time of the year, direct sunlight has normally stopped shining…
…through these windows by mid morning to midday.
East facing windows receive very good light levels and natural sources of heat without either being extreme.
Some plants which thrive in the North facing aspect may also do well here…
…but it’s likely they’ll need a little shielding perhaps with the help of a partially closed blind.
Ideal choices could be Echeveria Jade Plants.
Don’t be afraid to experiment with a East facing aspect, it’s a good spot which a lot of houseplants will do well in,
and others still, will adapt to.
South Facing Windows
As the Earth rotates during it’s 24 hour cycle, from late morning to mid afternoon the planet becomes…
…closest to the sun.
Therefore the strongest rays from the sun flow through South facing windows during this part of the day.
Plants which demand full sun will thrive here…
…it provides optimum levels of light for photosynthesis so growth can be pretty fast.
Plants which prefer shady or a North facing aspect hold only be put in this window during the Winter months…
…when the sunlight is less intense.
With all this bright light comes heat and it’s very easy for the area to become incredibly warm, even hot.
You must take this into account when putting houseplants here as very few can tolerate…
…a very hot temperature with very strong light for any great length of time.
It’s true that many from the cacti family will do wonderfully in this type of environment,
but this is arguably a waste of a fantastic location.
If you provide ventilation and some shielding a large number of other houseplants can also make use of this brilliant light space.
Now you know right? Keep reading for more…
West Facing Windows
As the afternoon rolls on, the sun will eventually start shinning through the West facing windows…
…right up until the sun sets and darkness falls.
Like the East facing aspect, the sunlight is weaker than it would be around midday…
…but because the ambient temperature by this point of the day is likely to already be quite warm…
…overheating in these places can be a problem.
Making sure ventilation is good and that the light becomes indirect.
For example by hanging translucent/net curtains or closing blinds will drastically reduce overheating issues.
Alright this is it! The last part!
Alright lets summarize all of the things that we have learned to put the lightning for Jade, it’s a quite problem of it.
Being a houseplant is kind of problematic when it’s concerning about the light.
Different with outdoor, indoorplant/houseplant need a good placement
so that the plant, especially Jade can receive good a mount of light.
