Mini Leaf Jade Plants for Sale Online
Mini Leaf Jade Plant (Crassula ovuta 'Minima'), also known as Baby Jade or Small Jade, is a dwarf succulent house plant. The fleshy, thick, green leaves are slightly smaller than its Jade Plant counterpart but its ease of care makes it a popular option for indoor gardeners. Miniature Jade likes to dry out between waterings and the most common cause of failure is over-saturated soil. Native to Africa, Mini Jade succulents store water in their large stems, leaves, and branches so they are a great house plant for beginners. When you buy your Mini Jade plant online, expect it to grow up to 30 inches tall! Under the right circumstances, it will sprout a beautiful pink, star-shaped flower. Popular with indoor bonsai enthusiasts, Mini Leaf Jade plants are also known as the Friendship Plant and make wonderful house warming gifts.

How to Care for Mini Leaf Jade Plants
We suggest re-potting your newly purchased Mini Leaf Jade Plants into a container 2"-4" wider in diameter, and 2-3" deeper than the container it is in currently. Use a well draining potting mix, and be sure not to disturb the roots when transplanting. We recommend adding a slow release fertilizer to the new potting mix before watering in. The most common cause of plant death after transplanting is planting the new plant to deep. That is why we do not recommend planting in a container any deeper than the soil line of the plant in the pot. If planted too deep, the stem of the plant will be covered with soil, retaining moisture and eventually rotting. Keep in mind that this new potting mix will retain more moisture than the previous container, so watering in the beginning should be less frequent.
