Limp Jade Plant


Anonymous added on August 20, 2016 | Answered

I have a jade plant that was started from a cutting from another jade plant. I have had it outside this summer because a friend said these plants love the night air. Now it is very droopy. It looks healthy otherwise, even sprouting new branches. What should I do to help it be strong again?

Drooping in jade plants is often the result of too much watering (or too much rain) but your plant looks like it hasn't been overwatered. Instead it looks like it's become top heavy and that is why one stem is falling over. Pruning along with giving it extra light to strengthen the growing stems can fix this.
