Jade Plant- Crassula

As a popular succulent houseplant, the Jade Plant is a great housewarming gift as they are considered a symbol of good luck, wealth and prosperity to its owners. Jade plants have fleshy, oval leaves and thick, woody stems that resemble tiny tree trunks. They require no luck to learn how to care for and maintain them as they thrive on neglect. These slow-growing and easy-to-care-for plants are perfect for people living busy lives or individuals who wish to bring the outdoors into homes and offices.

Common Problems

The most common pest the Jade plant suffers from is the mealybug. Jade plants (and succulents in general) are particularly sensitive to insecticides and oils, so treatment for mealybugs can be managed by wiping them off with a cotton ball or tissue soaked with rubbing alcohol. Other pest issues can include an infestation of spider mites or scale, both of which can be treated the same way.
