The jade plant is an evergreen with thick branches. It has thick, shiny, smooth leaves that grow in opposing pairs along the branches. Leaves are a rich jade green, although some may appear to be more of a yellow-green. Some varieties may develop a red tinge on the edges of leaves when exposed to high levels of sunlight.

As mentioned above the Jade has a similar look to a bonsai tree with a thick trunk and branches. The leaves are a thick oval shaped type which are a shiny dark green and possibly red colored outer edge’s. They can produce white or pink flowers in the right conditions, once they have matured.
Easy to grow:- As you will see with the care instructions below these are very easy to maintain, however, the more you see to it’s basic needs, the better and stronger it will grow.
Flowering:- Some growers have just been fortunate that theirs has bloomed while others have had to make the conditions right. Many have never seen one bloom in years (like me).
The general advice is at the end of summer bring the plant into a spot that will provide it with a few hours daylight, stop giving it fertiliser, reduce watering and provide full darkness at night — then you may see them bloom, in the winter. The plant will see this as a resting period.
