I am trying to grow a jade tree from a couple branches. I currently gave them outdoors all day and night. I do not water it much however the soil stays relatively moist. My question is the leaves seem to turning purpliah on the bottoms and they seem to curling upwards. Is this normal and or a good sign. I will try to post pics later. Thanks in advance

RE: jade plant propagation

It is almost impossible to kill jade. It will root as long as the soil is not too wet. The red color is not uncommon. It may indicate that the plant is getting more sun than it did before. I have known jade plants to be totally neglected, receive no water to the point that branches fall off, and they will root themselves on the ground.
