Is my jade ruined?

However you can take some of the leaves and start new plants. All you need to do is take the leaf and place it face up, on a bed of semi moist potting soil, give it some good light, and within a week or so you should see some new growth appearing from the stem area. they are one of the easiest plants to propagate from leaf cuttings. Hope this helps.

Stem rot is caused by keeping the soil too moist. If you repotted your new plant that is probably the problem. Jades have small root systems and rarely need repotting. In addition, if you use standard potting soil and put it over the original soil line, then stem rot is almost guaranteed.
I tell you this, not to make you feel bad, but to help you in the future with other plants.
