A Rootless Jade Plant
Jades do need more water than most other succulents because of the large amount of surface area of their leaves, BUT they also need a period of drought between waterings. During an active growing period, they should be drenched every week or two, then left to dry.
When your Jade plant is in its dormant period, you can wait for up to a month before re watering...
The parts that have been removed can be rooted and used as new plants. Each cutting should be allowed to callous over (very important), for at least a day or two (longer if the cut surface is large)
Plain, healthy leaves can be set with the cut slightly embeded into the soil surface. These will produce a miniature clone of the parent plant in about 2-3 months.
Stem cuttings should be set about 1-2 inches deep, and will root and begin growing in as little as a month.
Very little water should be given until the new roots have begun to form.
