Q. Jade vine

I live in Jupiter, FL. Zone 9. As a travel RN, I was fortunate to have had an assignment on Maui and fell in love with this vine. I know I reside on the border of where this plant will thrive. Do you think I should give it a go? I was told it needs to be planted on the southeast side of my house.

You could grow in a pot and even try it as an indoor plant if temps drop to low.
Sometimes it's fun to take on a challenge! Best of luck.

Q. Are you familiar with Blue Jade Vine diseases when they are planted outdoors?

The black in the branch runs all the way through, on bigger branches it looks triangular. The vines dry to a powdery wood “crumb” which disintegrates if you pinch it between your fingers.

I could not find specific diseases listed but I did find that this vine is very susceptible to root diseases if grown in soggy soil or poorly draining, heavy soil.

There is nothing that will help vines that have died off from this, but you could try amending the soil around the plant.
