Q.Can The Main Stem Of Jade Plant Be Cut Off And Rooted?

Zone 55025 | Anonymous added on February 12, 2024 | Answered

I have a tall, skinny jade plant that all the leaves fell off but now many leave are regrowing. I would like to cut the main stem in half and try to root the top piece. Is that possible/a good idea? I don’t like the look of the plant with one long stem.
