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?

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!
