Pruning a Jade Plant*


Hello I have a Jade plant that is very important to me. It is an indoor plant. We do not get much sun indoors so I have been putting it out on my balcony lately. It has long hanging branches and even though I love them I read that it is not good for the plant to have long hang branches. I was wondering where to cut? And what do I do exactly to prune it properly? I also would love any tips for growing a healthy plant that I will have for years to come. Thank you.




Congratulations on your healthy Jade Plant (Crassula ovata) which should remain beautiful and healthy for many, many years.
