Jade plants are a mainstay in my plant collection, and they are one of my favorite indoor plants! They are easy to care for succulents, and they make great houseplants. There are several different types of jade plants too, I have four in my collection (and I love every one of them!). Keeping these gorgeous plants thriving for years to come is easy with these basic jade plant care tips.

Water

First, and probably the most important jade plant care tip is watering – they do not like to be over-watered. Consistent over watering will kill them. If the plant is over watered on a regular basis, it will start to rot at the base. Be sure to always check the jade plant soil before watering it, and water only when the soil is completely dry. To check if your jade plant needs water, stick your finger one inch into the soil. If the soil is damp, don’t water it.

Best Potting Soil For Jade Plant

The general potting soil is adequate for growing jade plants, but it’s best to use a lightweight and quick draining succulent soil like a light mix of coarse play sand, potting soil, and perlite. You can buy succulent soil online, or anywhere general potting soil is sold.
