jade reducedCrassula (Jade)

Temperature: Average warmth from spring to autumn – succulents relish a marked difference between night and day temperatures.  Keep cool in winter – 10° C – 12°C is ideal.

Light: A windowsill is the right spot, as some sunshine is vital.

Water: Treat as an ordinary house plant form spring to autumn, watering thoroughly when compost begins to dry out.  In winter, water very infrequently, every 1-2 months.

Air Humidity: No need to mist leaves.  Likes fresh air in summer.

Repotting: Only repot when essential.  Transfer to a slightly larger pot in spring.  Use a shallow pot rather than a deep one.
