hi! my jade was recently transplanted and moved to a brighter location. it looks super healthy but has lost a few healthy leaves. They just seem to fall off. Will the branches be able to carry the weight. should I trim? thanks

Just give it time to adjust from the repot shock and position the plant by your sunniest window, ideally south facing. It is trying to seek more light. Try to add more perlite into your soil there to provide more air flow at root zone. Your soil seems too heavy on peat, and in time it will compact your media that will eventually damage the shallow and small root mass of jade plants.
