Last night the heat was blasting in my apartment (and I don't have a thermostat so I couldn't turn it down) and in my attempt to get some cool air inside I inadvertantly left my jade plant on the windowsill. This morning it was quite wilted and had beads of moisture along the segments of the stems. I feel horrible! Did I kill my plant??

I don't have an answer for you. How big is your plant? did any of the limbs on the inside part survive. Could you maybe take some clippings and clone it incase it doesn't survive? I hope it comes back. Good Luck.

its a small plant...it has about five or six individual stems emerging from the soil and all of them are drooped over. I haven't been able to look at it since 10 or so this morning, so I don't know if any of it has bounced back or not.

Don't expect it to bounce right back, and don't take any drastic measures to nurse it. Fertilizer will just stress it worse.
If it didn't actually freeze, you may see it recovering in a matter of time.

It's dead [Frown] I saved two small portions from the top branches and I have them in water for now. How long can I leave them suspended in water or should I replant them soon?

No water for Jades...
That will turn them to mush..

As far as any new jade plant I grew when I had them, the only thing I did was lay the leave on top of the soil..

The leaf did all the work, it put down roots in to the soil and sprouted a new plant..

I know there's a bunch of jade growers here, that can also give you some pointers on them.. [thumb] [flower]
*but I would say, [Frown] noooooooooo [Razz] water..*

Shouldn't be more than a couple of weeks
before roots appear, I would think...
as long you keep the soil a tad moist... [dunno] [dunno] [thumb]
