My jade plant has gray "dust" on some leaves, especially on new growth.

Hi @WallStreet Welcome to NGA

Sounds like you may have a powdery mildew problem. Usually caused by the plant staying wet.

This may help you clear that up.

Welcome!

Also, provide good air circulation. Crassula are famous for mildew problems.

Welcome! @Wallstreet.

We need you to do two things. Go to your "Profile" and update your public profile with your location. City/state is best for USDA zone is better than nothing. Post a couple of photos of that "residue" you see on the jade leaves. Photos are a great help in determining what's going on. Telling us the growing conditions of this plant(s) will also help.

I don't have gray hair, I have wisdom-highlights. I must be very wise.
