The Q&A Archives: Red Tip Jade Plant Leaves

Question: When I bought it, my jade plant had red tips on all the leaves. It appears healthy after being outside during the summer, but no longer has red tips. Why?

Answer: Red tips are a sign of stress in any succulent, such as your jade plant. When it is over/under watered, exposed to too much heat/cold, sunlight/shade, the plant becomes stressed. It is really no big deal, and I see your loving care fixed her right up! My Hens & Chicks look this way every winter but green right up when the weather warms up again. Keep up the good work!
