The Q&A Archives: Flat Jade Plant Leaves

Question: I have a 3 foot jade plant in a 10-inch pot. The "trunk" is nearly 9 inches around at its thickest part. It sits in a south-facing solarium in Maryland all year around. My problem is that the leaves are not fat and succulent looking, rather flat and shriveled. Some of the leaves on the lower branches seem to be a little plumper. It looks as though it's in need of water to plump it up, but perhaps I'm over watering. How much/often should they be watered? I'm reading conflicting reports. Thanks for your help!

Answer: so that you will always have a lovely plant.
