I think it was only two weeks ago I cut this back, and already new growth. 'Tis the season for Jades, I guess.
How did you cut the stem so close to the leaves without damaging the leaves?
When you cut a jade stem close to the leaves the small piece that is left on the plant will die and fall off leaving a nice clean stem.
What the heck kind of jade is that? I just may be asking you for a cutting if that one does not exist in my collection..lol
Great job and wonderful!
Hey Mike, check your email!
Yes, Ron is right, if you cut close to the stem, the plant does the rest of the work for you! Gotta love Jades!
Can you please post what kind of jade that is? I am curious to know the variety as well. Thank you.
Looks like a regular jade to me and the photo has been up-sized and makes it pixelated.
It is a compact leaf jade with burgundy undersides, don't know if I would go so far as to call it a 'regular' Jade. I think the sun and the close-up give it the different look.
All my jades have the same colors depending on the amount of sun light they get.
I don't find that to be true with mine, depends on the variety.
It is a different variety than the standard Jade.
The leaf-size, leaf-shape, and the burgundy color marks it as distinct.
My sister has a few of these particular Jades.
What I'm curious about is the leaf-texture. Is that dust on the leaves,
or fine hairs, or just the low quality resolution of the pic?
Honestly I think it is a combination of lighting, dust on the leaves and the fact it was taken with my cell phone. No fine hairs on this one.
Copy! Thanks for the clarification!
Christopher, do you find this Jade has a tendency to droop when it gets taller/longer?
Josh, to answer your question, I would probably say yes, though my plants are not all that old, so it may be a while before that became more evident.
