My Jade plant was doing really well until a few weeks ago. I noticed it wilting and shriveling up, tried to investigate. Found that my daughter had placed a Renuzit Oil diffuser in the plug right above it, so moved that. A few days later noticed the plant had large tubers. I was not sure what they were, so I plucked them out. Now it seems to be in worse shape. After reading this forum, I noticed that the pot is most likely too big, so I will replant once she is strong enough. Any suggestions what I can do to help my plant? Any ideas what happened? Why did tubers grow?
