Spliting the jade plant.

We took chance and broke our jade plant in half because it was getting too tall and not branching. Here is the progression of the new branches.

  2. Yikes... I have a jade plant I pinched off on my honeymoon. It has been growing for almost 5 years, and it's not branching. I want branches, but I hesitate to do this for fear it will die! I love the idea of having this plant as long as I've been married.

  3. It will never die from a cutting... the only way to kill a jade plant is to over water it since they're African plants and they can survive droughts because they store huge amounts of water in leaves and stems
