Jade Propagation

Sandman1June 28, 2012

I have started a jade cutting about in April time this year. I let the cutting sit on a table for a couple of days and then put it in a plastic bag to remain wet. I left it in there for quite some time and then took it out when the plant resisted when I tugged it. It has been a couple of months and I keep watering it when I feel it needs to be watered. However I do not have any new growth on the plant and the leaves are paper thin. Should I water it?

Yeah, we just throw jade prunings into the vacant lot next door and they take.

Jade being a succulent, The plastic bag may not be helping. succulents, like cacti, are hindered with high humidity. like ken and nil, I lay jade leafs and cuttings on sand, and don't water until about a week later. All they need is a little warmth and bright light. When it comes to succulents, less water is better than too much.
Here's how I propagate jade. Just set in in sand, the ends barely covered in soil.

You can propagate a much larger cutting. I've seen a friend have great success take foot long cuttings. Jades grow slow. Depending on the size of the pot you put it in, it is busy growing roots to fill the pot. Do you have it in a sunny or bright window? Maybe the weak leaves are due to lack of light?
