About the Jade Plant

Also referred to as the Money Tree, these plants are a symbol of good fortune in the ancient spiritual practice of feng shui. Often given as gifts to new business owners or sat on top of investment documents around Chinese New Year, the plant is thought to bring good fortune to the owner, especially when placed in the southeast corner of a home.

Despite their relevance in Chinese culture, Crassulae originate from South Africa where they are mainly found in the Eastern Cape and KwaZulu-Natal regions. First introduced to Western Europe by Dutch explorers developing shipping routes around the Cape of Good Hope, the Jade Plant has been cultivated as an indoor plant for centuries. They can grow to be hundreds of years old, becoming family heirlooms with great sentimental, and monetary, value. 

Your Crassula Ovata - Jade Plant currently lives in a 12cm nursery pot. They are 20cm tall from pot base to leaf tip and can slowly grow for hundreds of years, reaching heights of up to 1.5 meters.

Whilst we maintain the best standard possible, plants can vary slightly from the photograph from season to season.

Care Guide

Jade Plants thrive best in very bright spaces. Consider placing them near windows where they will receive a few hours of direct sunlight each day.

These plants are succulents, storing water in their leaves and stems for later use. Water when the soil dries out entirely.

Jade Plants are slow growing but have exceptional longevity. Many plants live for hundreds of years, becoming family heirlooms. Occasional fertilizing will enable them to grow more prolifically during the growing season.

These plants are considered to be toxic if ingested so it is best to keep them out of reach of curious children and pets.

Your Jade Plant is capable of growing to over 1.5m in height and spread with time.
