If they're plump and hard, do not water

Dwarf Jade,

Elephant Bush

the Elephant's Food


Water Dwarf Jade by the feel of the leaves. If they're plump and hard, do not water. Water when they just begin to soften.

Portulacaria afra

Easy care succulent from South Africa.
Can easily be grown as a houseplant with adequate bright light. Drought tolerant. Chronic over watering can kill the plant. Can go for several years without re-potting. But do let the soil dry out. Fertilize at one-third strength during the growing season. Prune by pinching or cutting above a pair of pads.
