My Siberian Jade trees

oks2n2July 13, 2014

I have some usual Jade trees. They grow as can at my conditions: a little sun and cool temperatures in winter.
My crassula Obliqua developed unusual leaves in last winter.

Not a disease nor insect. Probably an environmental glitch.

jean001a, it is not an environmental glitch. Do you know russian? Read http://www.lapshin.org/science/leafy.htm
Unfortunately, I know English very bad because I have not other references.
My plant is healthy. It's growing under chinese luminescence lamp and it was very cold long time.

Looks very good! Lapshin's site is a great resource.

Keep the Jade growing, and keep an eye on those unusual leaves.

Thank you, Josh! I do that.
New leaves are growing more similar to usual Obliqua. It is a feature of polytomy.

Are you sure this is Obliqua? The leaves look to be Ovata.

Yes of course, Josh! It was usual Obliqua. It's placed on the right side of the photo âÂÂ1. My Ovata is on the left. It looks so today and didn't lose its species. Only Obliqua became a monstrose,

Oh, I see.
I thought the Jade on the right in the first pic was a 'Crosby's Compact' because of the reddish underside of the leaves :-)

Some leaves are twisted, some look as Arborescens - wide, massive and juicy. But there are non glaucous, they have pure green colour.

That 'Crosby's Compact' looks like a 'Hummel's Sunset'! :-)

Sorry, Josh! Rather it was 'Hummel's Sunset'.
Here's my 'Crosby's Compact'. When I wrote yesterday,
it was too late. So I messed up ))

My little Obliqua a year ago, in July 2013.

Aha, it makes much more sense now! :-) Nice obliqua!

I just pruned my obliqua again....and it is in recovery.

How's the air flow ? Any chance you can increase it with a room fan or something smaller for the area

If a "mutant" jade plant leaf is cut off and propagated, will the new plant retain the same characteristics?

Yooperlady, sometimes....but usually not.
In order to maintain the characteristics, it's usually best to propagate a tip-cutting as opposed to a leaf.

Good luck, Josh! Only my Obliqua became monstrous in a very short period of time. Winter came in November, I turned a Chinese fluorescent lamp from 7 am to 9-11 pm. Temperature at night was about +5 C often (from 0 to +7 C) and it was not above +15 C during the day (from +10 to +18 C). Only when watered, I wasn't freezing my plants at nights. In December, such leaves began to grow.
I have no fan and air conditioner. An open window and Siberian frosts are my air conditioner.
yooperlady, in May, I had to save my plants. Irrigation water was of poor quality. At that time I tore 2 lowermost leaves and put to root. Here is their first photo. Then, it turned out, I forgot to take pics. But you can take my word for it: one sprout had usual Obliqua leaves and another grew some tubular leaves.

Josh, what means your hard growing for Crassulas? What temperatures, watering... I would compare with my conditions.
Thank you in advance.

Good morning, Oksana!
"Hard growing" usually means growing a plant with less water and nutrients, and often in hot sun.

Good night, Josh! )))
less water... lol And my hands reach themselves to water plants lol It is widely believed in Russia that Crassulas need watering often in summer. My plants are in stagnation in hot sun.
Hence, my conditions are not different from your ones: less water and nutrients, and a lot of artificial light instead of the sun.

Hi, Josh (greenman28)!
I have Crassula arborescens which I grow from leaf.
Tell me, please, how often are you watering that plant? I have to water less often than usual ovata Jades. Am I doing this right?
