Below are pictures of my jade. I've heard of jade leaves going red around the edges from sun exposure but the stem is turning red too. Should I be worried about that?
I watered this yesterday with more water than I thought was advisable. Only a couple of tiny drops exited the holes on the bottom. One day later the soil is dry. I thought succulents didn't need to be watered often. I haven't watered it again but why is the soil drying so fast? Should I water it in a couple of days or leave it a week?
Should the leaves be more plump? They're not very dark green and thinner than I expected succulent leaves to be. Any advise?
Also, one last thing: the root ball will not accept the surrounding soil. I had it in a different container for 6 months (but was advised to switch to a less deep and more wide one so I did) and the root ball stayed the same. It makes cracks around the base because the soil falls through instead of sticking. Is that normal? Does it just need more time to extent it's roots?
Any help would be most appreciated! Thank you! 😊
