This attractive plant bears pink flowers during the spring and summer seasons.
Watering and Feeding
The Silver jade plant dislikes water as the leaves store water. The soil should be allowed to dry out completely before the next round of watering. The plant should never be allowed to sit in water else; the roots will rot. During winter, the watering frequency should be once a month.
Crassula arborescens prefers the standard cacti potting soil mixed with sand. It loves to thrive in poor soil.
The hardiness range for this succulent plant is between 10 -11. Silver jade has a frost tolerance of -5° C (23° F).
These plants love bright light but shy away from direct sunlight. Therefore, as a houseplant, the succulent should not be placed on a window with high sun exposure.
Silver jade plants can be propagated easily from cuttings.
