Jade Necklace is one of the easiest succulents available for beginners. The unusual growth pattern produces stacks of leaves on top of each other in long ropes. Known botanically as Crassula marnieriana, this is a vigorous plant that will reach its mature size quickly. The gray-green leaves add drama to this succulent.
Best Locations For Growing Jade Necklace Plant
The smaller size of this succulent makes it a great candidate for growing on a shelf as part of a larger display or placing in a window where the ropey branches can be left to hang and sprawl at will. Jade Necklace also makes a great filler at the edge of a mixed container.
Jade Necklace Plant Sunlight Requirements
Succulents need to be grown in the brightest location of the house. A south-facing window is perfect for keeping this plant's color vibrant. Growing Jade Necklace in lower lighting will cause spindly growth and a darkening of the foliage. Jade Necklace will grow well under artificial lights. Succulents benefit from having their pots turned regularly; this helps the plants grow more upright and symmetrical.
Jade Necklace Plant Care
Jade Necklace is part of the Crassula family that includes many forms of the Jade plant. All of these plants need fast-draining potting soil. Use a commercial cactus potting mix or add perlite and sharp sand to an all-purpose, peat-free mix. Propagating Jade Necklace is extremely easy and can be done anytime of the year. Pinch off a few sections of leaves from the end of a branch and pop it in the soil. Within a few weeks, new growth will indicate that roots are forming. Repotting is only necessary every 2-3 years and only if the plant is starting to grow roots from the bottom of the pot. Growing this plant in a terracotta or other unglazed container will enhance the air circulation around the roots.
Watering Jade Necklace Plant
Jade Necklace needs to dry out completely between waterings. A thorough watering every 2-3 weeks will keep the fleshy leaves hydrated and the roots healthy. Crassula succulents prefer to live in lower humidity than tropical plants and do well in dry conditions.
Feeding Jade Necklace Plant
Fertilizers formulated for succulents will have a higher phosphorus and potassium content than nitrogen. Look for liquid feed with an NPK ratio approaching 1-1-2 or 1-2-4. Fertilize this plant once a month, year-round. Over-fertilizing will cause salts to build up in the soil and harm the plant.
