Propagating Jade Plants

“The Jade plant is one of the easiest plants to grow and care for. So are you wondering “can jade plants grow in water?”

 A  jade plant can be propagated and grow in water either by the stem or leaf propagation. After the new plant develops roots in water it can grow and stay in water indefinitely or transferred to the soil. That said, let’s dive into why you should try it. And how you can do so.

There are two methods of jade plant’s water propagation. The first one is stem propagation. Cut part from your established jade plant’s stem and place in water vase.

The taken part should have at least 2 inches bare stem and at least 2 leaves. The second method is the leaf method.

When starting a jade plant from a leaf, start by selecting a healthy leaf from the plant. Snip the leaf from the plant. The next step in propagating jade plants from leaves is to lay the jade leaf onto a potting mixture of half vermiculite or perlite and half soil. Water the potting mixture once after you lay the jade leaf down and water sparingly until the leaf puts out roots.

Once the leaf has taken root, the leaf will start to grow plantlets, or tiny plants, from the edges of the leaf that touch the soil. It should take anywhere from two weeks to two months for plantlets to appear. Once the plantlets are a few inches (7.5 to 10 cm.) tall, you can treat them as normal jade plants. Growing jade plants from cuttings or leaves is easy to do. Knowing how to root jade plant cuttings and leaves can help you to make more plants for friends and family. Good luck with starting a jade plant in your garden.
