I recently moved home from college and my jade plant is in a NW facing window. It started turning red on more than just the tips in the last few days. Is this still a happy jade plant?

The slight point at the end of the leaves makes me think this is not a jade. The color would be weird for a jade, too. Hopefully someone can help pin down the ID of your plant. Here is a jade for comparison.

Hmm yeah that would be helpful. Here are a couple of pictures over the past few months for comparison:

I also suspect it's some other species of Crassula, other than ovata.

Hello HikerLiz, your jade still looks okay to me, but it will like more bright light and warmth since it is still quite young. Reminds me of one of my jade leaf cutting that is still young and turns quite rosy colored when exposed to cooler temps and sun. I have been quite mean to this one actually, testing how much it can take staying outdoors even during our mild winters. Each winter season is different year to year, and I am just glad this little one survived them all. Been adjusting the soil's drainage too so it does not stay too wet while it was in its early stages.

As long as there is no mushy part on your plant, then it should just grow nicely, just be patient, give it more light, do not overwater.

Liz, your older pictures do indeed look like a jade plant. But I am stumped about why it looks different now. Are you watering well (till water comes out the hole at the bottom) when you do water? Does it get to "see" the sun during the afternoon?
