ok....

I've rooted a lot of jade cuttings. They're all doing well. Recently, though, I decided to propagate some jades from leaves. Jade Ovata and Silver Dollar Jades. They all have roots now, and two of them actually have little quarter inch plants coming from them. Now I'm a nervous mama!

I had assumed that the water from the starter leaves would sustain them for awhile. Am I right in that assumption? Or should I give them a little sip on occasion? Maybe when the starter leaves get a little soft or floppy? So far they look happy just being left alone. I want them to stay that way though.

Input would be appreciated!

leave them alone, other than a half a sip once a month or so until the starter leaves have withered.

sandy, jades are a think leaved succulent that is usually a deep green and very tolerant of neglect. they don't like being over loved (over watered or feed).

i'll try to find a pic for you.

Sandy, here is a picture of my Jade. I've had it for a little less than a year and got it as a tiny baby.
