My Siberian Jade trees

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.

Crassula Obliqua f. monstrosa today.

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.

My Crassula cooperi is blooming since May.

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

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

RE: My Siberian Jade trees

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


 o
RE: My Siberian Jade trees

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

Josh


 o
RE: My Siberian Jade trees

Yes of course, Josh! It was usual Obliqua. It's placed on the right side of the photo №1. My Ovata is on the left. It looks so today and didn't lose its species. Only Obliqua became a monstrose,

RE: My Siberian Jade trees

There are normal leaves below and monstrous ones above.


 o
RE: My Siberian Jade trees

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 :-)

Josh


 o
RE: My Siberian Jade trees

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


 o
RE: My Siberian Jade trees

My little 'Crosby's Compact' looks lowly


 o
RE: My Siberian Jade trees

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

Josh


 o
RE: My Siberian Jade trees

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 ))

RE: My Siberian Jade trees

My little Obliqua a year ago, in July 2013.


 o
RE: My Siberian Jade trees

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

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

RE: My Siberian Jade trees

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


 o
RE: My Siberian Jade trees

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


 o
RE: My Siberian Jade trees

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.

RE: My Siberian Jade trees

But those leaves dead in the heat +38C recently ((


 o
RE: My Siberian Jade trees

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


 o
RE: My Siberian Jade trees

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

Josh


 o
RE: My Siberian Jade trees

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.
