Jade Plant

I have a Jade Plant some call them Money plants, it lives in a 10 inch pot on a westerly facing windowsill and has been there for 37 years and is a beautiful plant, can anyone beat this for a plant of this age

Re: Jade Plant

Seems you must be doing something right then, Basser.
That's pretty impressive.

My next door neighbour stands hers out in the garden in the summer then brings it in before it gets cold.

Re: Jade Plant

Can't beat 37 years basser, that's amazing. It must love the position it's in.

We have a sort of palm plant which is about 25 years old. It is starting to look a bit thin down below but still growing on top..... a bit like its owner.

Re: Jade Plant

I have a couple about the same age (might even be older), I grew them from cuttings when I first bought this place in 1980 but not sure exactly when I planted them. When I say cuttings I mean bits I broke off a plant on the street.

They are not doing too well at the moment because they need repotting and new soil, I neglect my plants a bit but they will come good, They are outside all the time.

Re: Jade Plant

I tend to repot this one about every 2 years and give it a good watering in the summer every 3 weeks and leave in the water for a day then drain the surplus off and she gets a good feeding of Bio every six months, it's only ever flowered once in all those years sadly I never took a photo wish I had.

Thanks for your replies guys and Gals.

Re: Jade Plant

I lied, I don't have two I have three (it was near midnight when I wrote my message). They look worse than I thought but they are almost impossible to kill (like most of my plants) .

Mine definitely are but I have resolved to buy some potting mix and repot them and to restore them to their full glory this summer. I might even plant one out.
