Hello. My name is Dave.
I love Jade plants and I have a few but things are not going too well.

I have a jade plant for the past 3 years and I trim it here and there when the tree goes in wrong directions. I then use the trimmed parts and plant them in pots. Well those guys are growing, growing up but the main stem is not strong enough and they end up going sideways and then down. What can I do to toughen up the plant to be more supportive.


Problem #2

I have these palm trees for a few years and all was going well. Well a month ago when the temps went up I took them outside again to the balcony. Both of them collapsed and became weak. There is new growth on top bu the rest of the leaves are just hanging down. I can not figure out if its lack of water or too much. I only water when the soil is dry, which is every 4-5 days.

Hi Dave,, welcome to the garden forum wavy

I've not had luck with jades so I will leave that for another member to answer.
The dragon tree on the last picture right side is a plant I've had for years.
I've never taken it out side, and it gets indirect light and plenty of room around it. It could be in shock for taking it out, just give it time and leave it where it is. It looks healthy mine is about the same size,, but they do need plenty of room around them and no direct sun for sure. It's leaves should start perking up soon but you have to remember it went from inside to out side, back to inside again, so now it has to double regroup. If they are doing well in a particular spot then that's where I would leave to keep it happy thumbup

Thank you for your response.
Both palm trees were outside on the same balcony last summer. I waited till the temps got back to 70's to take them both outside after the winter. I really want them to be happy. I have a feeling I might be over watering them, but a few times I watered them frequently and they liked it, for about a day or two.
During winter, they were inside our apartment and I would water them once every 2 weeks, they were happy with that and looked great. Since I took them outside and the temps are in 85-95F range, I water them every 3-4 days, as the soils dries up.
