The way that I determine if my jade plants need water is to gently squeeze one of it's "leaves" . . . if it is soft instead of firm then I water moderately.

I had one that spread about 35 inches across and it was about two feet high. There was a jewelry store in Wisconsin that had one that filled the whole front window area.

Very easy to propagate from stem cuttings placed in water or potting mix. High sunlight,low to medium humidity. Allow to dry between waterings
