I have a very healthy jade plant
that is about 3 years old and growing
like wildfire. About a year ago, my cat knocked it over and it came loose from the pot. I managed to save it and repot it, although it looked a little worse for the wear. But that jade is no quitter!
Since then, the once tall and uniform plant
has grown in lots of interesting snakey directions. It's thriving and again growing
at an alarming rate. The problem is that a large section of it has grown in a downward direction and then back up again, forming a large "U" that extends much lower than the pot from which it grows. I've had to accomodate this by letting that side of the plant
hang over the edge of a table by the window.
All is fine for now, but it will soon be so heavy that I know it will tip the pot over. Is there any way to correct this? Or should I just plant
it in a much bigger pot and let the jade do its thing?
I want to do what's best for it. It's my favorite plant
! Thanks for your suggestions.
