How to succeed with jade cutting?
Discovered a thread about fat jade cuttings and the many failures in getting them to root and grow. I got really excited about this and looked for a fat cutting on eBay myself, but couldn't find one. Oddly, maybe guided by some gardening deity, that same day I discovered an enormously fat jade plant in my yard (after living in this house for 6 years). How is that possible? It's growing inside a cypress and I have only seen the green part of the jade. I have never liked the jade where it grows, but with JADE on my mind I took a closer look at the trunk.
So, down to business :)
How would you go about getting a fat piece of jade to grow in a pot? What's the easiest way to succeed? Trying to get the roots up? Or trying to root a piece of the trunk? Or cut it above ground with leaves and try to get that to root? Or air layering? Many options, but what would you do??
Your help is greatly appreciated!
