|Glad you were able to root cuttings of your original plant! It sounds as though the new starts have a good root system now that they are about eight inches tall so they can safely be transplanted into their own pots. You can encourage branching by pinching off the very tip of each plant. Where you pinch you should get two new stems growing. The plants will branch without pinching but pinching them back won't hurt them - in fact it will stimulate new growth. Best wishes with your jade plants.
