Jade plants are really very easy to propagate. You can start a new plant with a single leaf, or with a short piece of stem. Pull or break the leaf or stem from a healthy plant and allow it to callous over for a few hours. Then stick the end of the leaf or stem into moistened sand. After a few weeks roots will develop and you'll see new growth. You can repot the new little start once it has developed a good-sized root mass.
