Houseplants-Jade Plant -Pinay Goes Gardening

Dear insansapinas,

This is called Jade Plant. It has two cultivars named Hobbit and Gollum.

Its name may have been derived from its leaves which are green in color but turn red at the edges when exposed to sunlight.

Its flowers are starshaped small white and pink flowers which blossom during winter.

Light: low to bright but it can stay in low light for extended periods.
Watering: Wait for the soil around to become dry before watering.
Fertilizer: does not need heavy feeding.
Tip: Use clay pots instead of plastic. They grow heavy on top.
