Jade Succulent is a low-maintenance evergreen shrub originating from South Africa that has an affinity for bright, indirect light but an aversion to overwatering. With crimson circles marking the tips of green spindle-shaped leaves, these succulent shrubs yield petite white, star-shaped flowers tinged with pink. Since this house plant can store a lot of water within its leaves, it is drought tolerant. This verdant star is the perfect choice for a beginning gardener or someone who doesn’t have a lot of free time to spare.

Best Locations For Jade Succulent

Jade Succulent will thrive in any room that has moderate temperatures and humidity; however, due to this plant being toxic to people and pets, children’s rooms should be avoided.

Jade Succulent Sunlight Requirements

Jade Succulent thrives in bright light. Direct light, however, can burn Jade Succulent’s leaves, turning them a reddish color. To avoid this, place this gem in indirect light. A good location is a south-facing window, but place this house plant a few feet away from direct light. Six hours of light per day is optimal for Jade Succulent to flourish.

Jade Succulent Care

Jade Succulent prefers temperatures ranging from 65° to 75°, humidity varying from 40% to 50%, and a neutral to slightly acidic, well-draining soil. Since Jade Succulent is prone to root rot, use a cactus mix or indoor potting soil amended with perlite. A pot size of 6-8 inches will provide the perfect home for this house plant. 

To encourage well-balanced, bushier growth, prune Jade Succulent at least once per year. If you have fallen in love with this plant and eagerly want to see it multiply, propagation is relatively easy with a pair of clippers. Take three-inch cuttings and store them in a dry location with bright, indirect light. Wait about 4 or 5 days for the stems to heal. Next? Place each of the cuttings in slightly moistened soil in bright, indirect light. Wait one to two weeks for the roots to grow.

Finally, if repotting Jade Succulent, provide smaller plants with a new pot every two to three years, while larger plants require repotting every four to five years with the new pot being about an inch larger than the plant’s diameter. 

Watering Jade Succulent

To avoid fungal disease, check the moisture levels in the soil before watering. Simply stick your fingers down into the soil about two inches. If the soil is dry, then, water. If not, then wait a day or two until you can do another moisture check.

Feeding Jade Succulent

Except during the winter, feed this gorgeous green companion with a balanced fertilizer at half strength biweekly.

Plant Shipping

Below are some factors we consider when determining when to ship the plants depending on the timing of the order.

Winter to Early Spring

We ship only when it's warm enough to plant in your growing zone.
Sometimes plants aren't completely ready to sell and ship in early spring. We will wait until the plants are ready before shipping so you don't get a subpar product.
For Southern plants we will be able to ship much earlier than plants coming from our northern nursery.


If there is extreme heat we may delay shipping for a week or several weeks.
We review what areas the plants are traveling through as well as your location.

Fall into Winter

We’ll ship plants out all the way up to the end of the fall planting season!


Get your order in early to reserve your plants for Spring planting!

Once your plant is shipped you’ll receive an automated email with tracking information.
