Mature Jade plant drooping and soft branches
My heirloom jade is approx. 15 yr old and the trunk measures 8\" around. Once brought inside for winter the heavy branches become limp and droopy. I tie them them up with supports to keep the plant stable. Is there something I can do to help the branches hold themselves more upright throughout the 8 months of indoor growth? Thanks!

This is what you will expect when you bring it inside. This happens due to the lack of light and also lack of humidity. If you can increase these, then you will likely see less of a problem in the winter. Unfortunately, this is just a natural response to the change in conditions.
