I have an Infamous Jade plant – also known to some as a Friendship Tree. It is about 9 years old.
It has wintered inside the apartment, along with our other 5 plants. But now that the forecast says no freezing temps this week – it’s time to go outside!
But as I looked at it, I noticed something very strange.
It’s been growing to one side, and to one side only.
It badly needed a haircut!
So, cut away I did.
Does it look better now?
Here are the other plants that are going outside today.
My sweet little Bay Tree
My very sad little Rosemary plant – which barely survived the winter – lack of light?
My lovely Christmas Cactus, which is like a dear, old friend – it blooms every Christmas, and still has a few buds now
My trusty Aloe – which went through a rough patch but seems a bit happier now
And a nice little plant which I’m embarrassed to say I haven’t a clue what it is, but it plays nicely with the other plants, and sometimes has little orange flowers that are unusual
Everyone seems to be very happy to be outdoors in the sunshine
Except for these sad little remnants
Does anyone want some Jade cuttings? They will make faithful companions for you. Everyone needs a Friendship Tree!
Besides, as I said – this one is Infamous! Or, it’s Mama was!
P.S. Thanks to our pal Wikipedia, here is a picture of a 27-year old Jade plant from Wales. Yikes! And I think I have it bad!!
