I really am addicted to the Jade plant. You can see below! I just love the look of it, how easy it is to maintain and you can grow it yourself. The reason why I have so many is that I break a bit off, stick it in some water, let it grow roots, then put it in my garden. Then I grow a bigger Jade and can pot it or break some off and start again. I actually have 2 little stems sitting in water currently waiting for roots to grow. A few months ago I was in Melbourne and walking down a side street with my Dad. Hanging over someone’s fence as we passed by was a huuuuge Jade plant. It stopped me dead in my tracks… Sneakily I snapped a hunk off and brought it all the way back to Wagga to grow more of my own. This plant is so easy to make more of!
I also love them because they are considered a “lucky plant” or “money tree”. You can’t say no to that! The money tree is used as a feng shui cure to attract the energy of wealth and prosperity. The money tree plant is supposed to produce positive vibrations that will bring prosperity to the owner of the house or business. It is best placed at the front door and at the back door. I have every entry and exit spot covered in my house haha!
According to Feng Shui practices, it encourages placing jade plants near entrances to your business or in southeast location of your business or home in order to activate financial energies. Jade plants, like the stone, are green. Green color is symbolic of growth, renewal, spring time sprouting in the form of wealth in our lives.
There are stacks and stacks of roots in this one I’ve had in water. Time to plant it I think.
This one is considered a miniature Jade plant because the leaves are smaller. Or also know as “Elephants Food”.
The Jade plant can have slightly different leaves and shapes like this one with pointy or tubular leaves.
They cost about $15 for a good size like these ones at Bunnings. I even bought one in the Kmart nursery.
Have you got a Jade plant? ♥ KC.
