Not sure about the largest but at least he is not asking much for it. Gene

Probably won't be "largest in the world" anymore after it makes it through shipping. Blinking

But I am thinking that somewhere in the world they grow natively outdoors. I can see trees 30+ feet tall. Gene

Seems subjective to say it is the largest in the world, but it is pretty. I have seen taller ones.

Beauty in the eye of the beholder, and definitely foolish for anyone who will to buy it at that price Hilarious!

Our jade plant (about 15 years in the ground) was 4 feet tall before the painters chopped it down to a nub. They might get a couple of feet taller if you actually take care of them. This listing is just a way to sell a smaller plant for a better price (look at seller's other items).

Also, it goes to show that you can just stand far enough behind any plant you want (even a Lithops!) and it will look as wide as your outstretched arms. Smiling

What do you mean Baja? He's only 10 feet back - if that wall wasn't in the way, the plant would be a lot bigger!

Giving actual dimensions is a must, IMO, on eBay. Especially with plants.

Those trees are not jades. The jade is not a tree, it is a bush. The upper limit for mature jade plants is in the range of 4-6 feet (in the ground, here, where they are probably the most common succulent, or at least in the top 3).
