I Don't know if I'm doing this right....buuut here goes.
I have a jade and was watering once a week. Heavy rains blue in on the jade which is on my screened in porch. I was told that Jade is a cactus
-like plant and does not like alot of water.
Plant looked o.k.....BUT....To spray for bugs, I mixed 1 gal. of water 1 cup of dish soap and 1 cup of cooking oil. Was given this recipe by a gardner. I sprayed the jade and the bottom just fell out! 50% of the leaves fell off the jade...the hanging moss lost all of the petal-like leaves.My spider plant is massively scorched and the new cuttings of Basil are here no more.
I am new to plants and caring for them. Can someone please tell me what I did wrong?..and more importantly...what, if anything, can I do to fix this mess.
I appreciate your time, any and all responses.
