Plant jade plants in cactus soil with some added organic matter or mix your own with 1 part soil, 1 part peat moss and 3 parts coarse builder's sand. Root cuttings from jade plants in moist sand. Although they will root in a glass or vase of water, jade cuttings rooted in water do not transplant well.
Place jade plants in a southern window where they receive at least four hours of direct sunlight. Some varieties, typically those with variegated leaves, prefer less light and can be grown successfully in bright, indirect light. Move jade plants away from windows at night during the winter to avoid injury from the cold. During warmer months, either move the plant away from the direct heat of the window or move it outdoors to a sunny spot.
Water jade plants to keep the soil slightly moist during the summer when they are actively growing. Reduce watering in the winter, allowing the soil to dry slightly before watering again.
Fertilize jade plants with a water-soluble fertilizer designed for houseplants once every three to four months. Wait at least three months before applying fertilizer on newly started plants.
Maintain daytime temperatures between 65 and 75 degrees Fahrenheit and nighttime temperatures between 50 and 55 F.
Wipe down the leaves occasionally with a damp cloth to remove dust. If your jade plant becomes top-heavy, slip its plant pot into a larger pot and fill in between the pots with fresh soil. This gives your plant the support it needs without the need to repot the plant. Pinch out new growth with your thumb and finger to encourage the plant to fill out and develop dense foliage, if it begins to look leggy or spindly.
