Answer: Glad you found our site so helpful. If you've been caring for your jade plant for a year, you're probably doing everything just right. As the stems elongate they tend to droop because of the weight of the fleshy leaves. I think this adds character to the plant. If the stems hang down too low and start dragging on the table or floor you can cut the stems to shorten them. You can root these tip cuttings to make brand new plants by first allowing the cut end to callous over (usually 24 hours) and then removing a few of the lower leaves and sticking the cut end into moistened potting soil. The cuttings will root in 6-8 weeks and you'll have brand new plants.
Best wishes with your jade plant.
