Jade Plant outside?

roots3003(9)February 24, 2009

Has anyone in the valley had any luck growing Jade plants outside, in the ground or in pots? I really want to put mine outside, but I wanted to get some input first. Thanks.

I put my potted jade on a covered east facing patio in mid/late April and bring in indoors mid October. It loves it. Jade can take direct easterly sun for up to 6 hours with out any negative affects. They don't like temps below 40 degrees for long periods of time or sudden drops to that temp.

In Arizona, they sunburn easily ... a few hours of morning sun, or dappled shade is about all they can stand.
