Water. As a general rule of thumb, succulent plants prefer sparse watering. To avoid overwatering, soak the plant, allow it to drain completely, then wait for the soil to dry out before watering again. During cooler months, you can reduce watering, as the roots can rot in cold, wet soi
In this case, use a high-nitrogen, soluble plant food, such as a 10-20-10 formula. Jade plants do well when fertilized with plant foods formulated for African violets. Organic fertilizers, such as fish emulsion, also provide the proper nitrogen for jades to thrive.
Light. Most Crassula plants need some shade in the hottest part of summer but require bright light to attain their most vibrant color. When grown outdoors, a site with morning sun and afternoon shade is perfect (if placed in full sun all day, the leaves may scald).
These succulents prefer average summer temperatures between 65 and 70 ºF (18 and 21 ºC); in winter, cold to 50 ºF (10 ºC). Most Crassulas will tolerate some short-term freezing, but cold or heat extremes will cause them to lose leaves and die.
Repot as needed, preferably in spring, at the beginning of the period of active growth. Make sure the soil is dry before you begin repotting, then gently remove the pot. Knock away the old soil from the roots and place the plant in a new or the same pot with a fresh potting soil mix.
