Watering Needs 

The Variegated Jade Plant has low watering needs and is considered drought-tolerant. It prefers infrequent watering rather than being consistently moist. It's critical to let the soil dry out in between waterings because overwatering can cause root rot. A good rule of thumb is to hold off on watering again until the top inch of soil has dried out. Remember, it's always better to underwater than to overwater your Crassula ovata variegata plant. So, be sure to check the soil moisture before reaching for that watering can! 

When watering, it's important to use a well-draining soil mix to prevent water from sitting in the pot and causing root issues. Make sure the pot has drainage holes to allow excess water to drain.

However, it's important to protect your Crassula ovata variegata plant from direct sunlight for extended periods, especially during the hot afternoon hours, as it can scorch the leaves. 

If you notice that the leaves of your Variegated Jade Plant are turning pale or yellowish, it may be an indication that it's not receiving enough bright light. On the other hand, if the leaves start to appear sunburned or develop brown spots, they might be getting too much direct sunlight. Finding the right balance is key to keeping your variegated jade happy and healthy. 

If you don't have access to bright, indirect light, you can also grow the Variegated Jade Plant under fluorescent lights. This can be a great alternative for indoor spaces with limited natural light.

A good mix for this plant is a combination of cactus soil and perlite, which provides the right balance of moisture retention and drainage. This type of soil helps prevent overwatering and root rot, which can be detrimental to the plant's health. Instead, make or buy a well-draining potting mix, or ideally use our specialized potting succulent mix that contains 5 natural substrates and mycorrhizae to promote the development of a strong root system that helps your variegated jade succulent to thrive.
