Here are some tips for growing a Jade plant on your table top:
- Choose a suitable container: Jade plants prefer well-draining soil, so it's important to choose a container with drainage holes. The container should also be wide and shallow to accommodate the plant's shallow root system.
- Use well-draining soil: Use a potting mix specifically designed for cacti and succulents, or make your own by mixing regular potting soil with sand and perlite.
- Water sparingly: Jade plants are drought-tolerant and can go for long periods without water. Allow the soil to dry out completely between waterings, and then water deeply. Avoid getting water on the leaves or stems, as this can cause rot.
- Provide bright light: Jade plants need plenty of bright, indirect sunlight to thrive. Place your plant near a sunny window, but avoid direct sunlight, especially during the hottest parts of the day.
- Prune as needed: Jade plants can get leggy over time, so it's important to prune them regularly to maintain their shape. Pinch off the tips of the stems to encourage bushier growth.
- With these simple tips, you can enjoy a beautiful and healthy Jade plant on your table top.
