Jade Plant

I have had many of these in my gardens or inside on a shelf over the years. I can really say that these plants will last, even when you forget to water. Last summer on my balcony, I had geraniums, cosmos and a few other plants, they survived the until fall, even when I forgot to water on really hot days.

Depending on the climate, these plants will grow outside. If you live where it is colder than keep them indoors until the weather is warm.

Always remember, some plants are poisonous to pets and wildlife.

Happy Gardening!
