40+ JADE PLANT SEEDS Crassula ovata
Succulent Bonsai Indoor Money Plant
The Jade Plant has many common names due to it's huge popularity
around the world as an indoor plant. It is also known as a
Chinese Money Tree, a Friendship Tree & a Luck Tree.
As a succulent it is a low maintenance addition to any home or garden
and is also very popular species for bonsai. It is a great starter plant
for bonsai beginners.
The plant is self is quite beautiful and with its thick trunk & stems and
obovate, fatglossy leaves looks very much like a large bonsai. It can
grow up to 2.5 metres in height and is evergreen. The leaves are a
deep green colour but can also develop a red tinge to the edges when
exposed to a lot of sunlight.
Crassula ovata is not particularly fussy about soil type or pH levels
as long as the soil (medium) is well draining. Like other succulents they
store moisture in their fat little leaves so are drought tolerant only
requiring water as the soil is drying out. They are happy indoors as long
as they have enough natural light.
They can be planted outdoors in many regions and can cope with light
frosts. However incooler climates during winter, may need to be kept in
pots (which they are very happy in) and placing ina spot protected
from frost and cold windsor taken inside.
HOW TO GROW
Sow seeds in Spring or Summer. Prepare pots or seed tray with a soil
mix formulated for cactus' or succulents. Sow the seeds on the surface
and cover with a light sprinkle of soil. Space seeds 1 inch apart from
each other. Moisten with a spray bottle but do not over water. Place
in a warm, bright spot with indirect light. Keep moist.
Ideal germination temperature is around 22°C/75°F
Germination can be erratic but normally you will see sprouts
between 30-90 days.
Seedlings can be transplanted once they have 3 leaves. If
planting outdoors (in moderate-warm climate) choose a full sun
location with well draining soil, dig a hole just large enough for
the plants roots.
If in cooler climate you will need to keep this plant in a pot so
it can be moved inside in the winter to avoid damage from
prolonged frosts. The Jade Plant is a very popular indoor plant
and copes very well in these conditions. If it is kept in a spot
that is too hot indoors, it will let you know by dropping leaves.
Be sure to never over water this plant as it will die. Allow soil
to dry out between watering.Jade plants need bright light, but should
not be exposed to a lot of direct sun (which may cause leaf scorch).
Mature jade plants can be encouraged to flower in late winter or early
spring if given a rest period with reduced watering, no fertilizer, and
full darkness at night.
Jade plants like to be crowded and rarely need tobe potted up into
larger containers; however it is recommended that you replace the soil
every three years.

The Khoi and other African tribes ate the roots, which they grated
and cooked and then ate with thick milk. The leaves were also used
medicinally, boiled in milkand used totreat epilepsy, corns and as a purgative.
However, Crassula ovata is also known to be toxic to cats, dogs & horses and
can be mildly toxic to humans too; causing diarrhoea & vomiting.
In the Far East, Germany and the USA it is traditionally grown in square
porcelain tubs with 'lion feet' to bring good financial luck, and has
attracted more common names including the money tree, penny plant,
dollar plant and tree of happiness.
