If you have a fully grown jade plant and want to start another one, there are many ways you can separate the two. The important part of separating them is correct timing which is in the spring or summer. Only healthy plants and recently watered plants can be used. First remove it from the soil and find the stems that are pulling away from the main plant. Cut between the stems and make sure you get some roots in the part you pull away. Next lay it out and let the tissue dry out. After a couple days you can now plant the roots.
- There are multiple ways to propagate Jade plants. New plants can be started from leaves, stem cuttings, or divisions.
- Letting succulents ‘callus’ when propagating will greatly increase your chance of success.
- Well-draining soil and proper watering will help a new jade plant start, as well as keeping your old plant healthy.
