Q.How do I take care of my bonsai jade plant

Zone 19047 | Anonymous added on April 23, 2020 | Answered

I’ve had my bonsai jade plant since the end of February and I’ve been watering it every 3-5 weeks, now that it’s spring I water it every week or 2 weeks or whenever it’s dry, but recently I’ve noticed that my jade’s leaves are no longer plump and I can never tell if it’s dying or just adjusting. I fertilized it this month, and I’m hoping it gets better soon.

Our experts say jade plants do best in daytime temperatures of 65-75 F. (18-24 C.) during the day and 50-55 F. (10-13 C.) at night. I have to assume this is true for one that's in a bonsai situation, as well. You should only fertilize it about once every six months, and make sure the soil is not dry when you apply fertilizer.
