Where is it from?

The Trailing Jade, also known as Weeping Jade, is a succulent plant that originates from Northeastern Africa, particularly, Tanzania. 

Trailing Jade: A Winter Beauty 

Unusually, Trailing Jade plants spur small, yellowy-orange flowers during the winter. So, she’s a great choice of houseplant to brighten up the darker days of the year.

Is this the right plant for me?

The Trailing Jade is a low hassle, easy to care for plant. She just needs good light and to be situated up high, so that her trailing stems can hang loose. As a succulent, she requires very little water, so you don’t need to stress about any complicated watering routine.

When it comes to care, less is often more. The spongy, thick succulent leaves store water so you don’t have to! As the name suggests, the leaves are jade in colour, often tinged with a purple burgundy and grow from thick stems which can reach up to 30cm in length. A great plant for a hanging basket, adding elegance and character to your home. 

How To Care For Your Trailing Jade

  • Light: Trailing Jade likes lots of bright, indirect light. She will also benefit from some shade on hot, sunny days. 
  • Water: Allow the soil to dry out almost completely before watering. Watering every 2 - 4 weeks on average in the summer months. Water even less frequently in winter. 
  • Fertilizer: In spring and summer, feed with a balanced liquid fertilizer (this means a ratio of NPK that is all the same), once a month. 
  • Temperature: Ideal temperatures for this plant fall between 18-24°C - room temperature. However, this plant is fairly hardy and will also tolerate the colder winter months without concern. 
  • Humidity: Trailing Jade has no specific humidity requirements. As a succulent, she is suited to dry conditions and will not like collecting water on her leaves, so do not mist this plant. 
  • Soil: For best results, grow your Trailing Jade in slightly acidic, sandy soil.
  • Repotting: This plant responds well to repotting. Transplant every 12-18 months in spring if necessary. You can up-size the pot by 5cm each time. 

Trailing Jade - Common Problems and Questions

Help! I think my plant has root rot

Root rot is a symptom of overwatering. It is important that you allow the soil to dry out almost completely before re-watering your Trailing Jade each time. As a succulent, this plant will not cope well with wet soil. Carefully lift the root ball from the pot and inspect the roots. If root rot has taken hold, the roots will appear brown and mushy. If the whole root system is affected, then sadly the plant will not recover. If only some of the roots are rotting, you can cut them back with sharp scissors and re-pot the plant in a sandy compost.

How can I make my Trailing Jade plant bushier? 

Carry out regular pruning to encourage dense growth. Cutting the stems back to just above a node will trigger the growth of lateral buds. If the stems are long and spindly, cut them back further. 

Why are the leaves of my plant turning yellow and soft?

This is a symptom of overwatering. Cease watering your plant and allow the soil to dry out almost completely. Remove any dead or dying leaves which could cause infection to the plant. Use your finger to test the moisture content in the soil before watering each time and remember that less is often more when it comes to the Trailing Jade.
