My Jade had a baby woohoo. It's the smallest thing I have every seen. I had it in a hanging basket and it was droping leaves like crazy but only where I couldn't see it. I got up on a chair yesterday just to check that everything was all right and it was a 3 alarm alert at the basket. It had lost all of its leaves on the part that I couldn't see. And in the soil near the edge was a little tiny baby jade. I've never seen one that small. So now it is marching back over to the window one step at a time. Silly thing kept its burgandy edges and firm texture through it all. I feel like a bad momma at the moment.

tk, you should start a minature landscape garden with your "new baby". i'm thinking of doing it with a "new baby" hawarthia and the burro's tail i have a couple of other "babys" from another succulent (not sure of the name)but i have seen pictures of mini landscapes and i thinkthey are real neat looking [Wink]

Mini Landscapes? Do you have the link? It sounds intriguing, tell me more please. With only the one baby I think it would be a very desolate landscape but I like the idea.

Um Pheonix what about copyright stuff?

Don't want any trouble for you.

tk i think the forum has some info on dish gardens, which are similar to mini-landscapes.

Ok, Thanks Phoenix,

I'll take a look see. I may have more baby jade before to long lol. It really lost a lot of leaves and some look like they want to start babies.
