Silver Dollar Jade Plant

The Silver Dollar Jade Plant, or Crassula arborescens is another variety of jade plant. Jade plants are popular for growing both  indoors and out. I previously posted about my mini Jade.

This variety has a much larger silver tinted leaf and sturdier plant structure, but they are cared for in the same way.

It is a succulent, native to South Africa.

Silver Jade does well in cactus/succulent potting soil. It does not like wet feet, and should be let to dry before giving it a good drink.

Then let the container drain thoroughly before placing  back in its spot. Preferably in a bright area, out of direct sunlight.

Below you can see how my jade plant is producing a pup, which I will eventually remove and place in a small pot.

You can also propagate jade plants with stem or leaf cuttings. Spring and summer are the best time to do this. There are many videos on utube, which show you how to do this.

I especially like the Wisconsin Wonder Garden video titled Different Ways to Propagate Jade Plants. It shows you all you need to know.

Hopefully this will encourage you to seek out some of the different varieties of easy to grow and care for jade plants.
