About Jade Plant
The Jade plant of Crassula ovata is a succulent that is native to Southern Africa. The Jade Plant is one of the most popular houseplants around the world and has been for centuries. In some Asian countries, the Jade plant is associated with luck, riches and prosperity and is often called a money plant. The Jade plant was introduced into Europe in the 17th century and has been popular ever since.
The Jade plant is part of the Crassula genus, which includes 200 species of plant. Crassula are succulents which are characterised by their thick succulent leaves. In the wild Jade plants grow as shrubs or small trees. The small succulent leaves and swollen roots of Jade plants store water, making Jade plants tolerant to drought.
Jade plants love the sun and should be exposed to four to six hours of sunlight daily. As with most succulents, too much water is the most frequent way plants are killed.
