Butchered my jade tree; concerned about roots
Hello! This is my first post. I bought a jade plant a few years ago from someone who was having a garage sale. It remained in the same pot until this year. The branches became really leggy and it was top heavy. I decided to butcher it and take everything off. The soil it was in before was like caked on mud. I had to crack the pot just to get it out and then had to knock the mud stuff off the roots. I'm wondering if the roots are even healthy at all. They look woody and brittle to me. There isn't a foul odor. Before I put it into a new pot I want to make sure they are healthy and don't need trimmed at all. Any advice would be appreciated!
