Jade Interior Plants With Glossy Appearance
The jade plants are easy interior plants to care for, thus why you see many people having them. The jade plants are characterized by plump, full leaves with glossy appearance coming off of thick stems. In the right conditions, jade interior plants can reach up to 4 feet in height and width. These plants are native to South Africa, so they like dry, hot, bright conditions. People who grow jade plants as interior plants sometimes struggle with them, because the plants largely like to be left alone. It is fairly hard to kill a jade plant, but constant fussy attention is probably the best way to do it; these plants thrive on neglect and conditions which could kill a number of other interior plants, including other succulents. The best place to grow these plants indoors is a warm, sunny spot, ideally near a window with a lot of light exposure, and if you grow jade plants outdoors, wrap them in blankets during the winter if you think it will frost, as the plants are very susceptible to frostbite.
To care jade interior plants, root cuttings from jade plants in moist sand. If your jade interior plant becomes top-heavy, slip its plant pot into a larger pot and fill in between the pots with fresh soil. This gives your jade plant the support it needs without the need to repot the plant. Pinch out new growth on jade interior plants with your thumb and finger to encourage the plant to fill out and develop dense foliage, if it begins to look leggy or spindly.
