alhj said:I'm hoping to get some advice on my jade plant. I've had it over 10 years. At my previous house it stayed pretty small and was very slow-growing. I don't think it got enough light. It's been in this north facing garden window for the last 8 years. It's the best light in my house as the rest of the house is surrounded by woods. It seems fairly happy, but it's gotten very leggy. I've been taking better care of it the last couple of years and the amount of new growth is impressive. But it's still very tall.
The legginess started at the old house and I didn't know until very recently that pruning could have helped. Now I worry it's too late?
I did snip off some of the small branches today to encourage them to fill out. But that's not going to reduce the tall "trunks". Is there anything I can do? Should I, could I, go so drastic as to chop off the entire top down to only a few inches tall? I love this plant and don't want to kill it.
I have 2 established babies that I grew from leaves. And today I planted a few cuttings and set out several leaves to try to get a bunch of baby plants.
Any advice would be appreciated!
