Hi I have a suggestion For new gardeners - under 'jade plant' this isn't enough into - 'An important thing to keep in mind is that you should water your jade plant in the regular way and then water it with the fertilizer water.' - It would be helpful to expand on what 'in the regular way' means.

This is the paragraph you had questions about and the last sentence explains why you should water the plant first; they water with fertilizer.

For proper jade plant care, fertilize your jade plant about once every six months. Use a balanced water soluble fertilizer. An important thing to keep in mind is that you should water your jade plant in the regular way and then water it with the fertilizer water. Never fertilize your jade plant when the soil is dry, as this will damage the roots.
