Variegated Jade

In 2005, I received several variegated jade clippings and none survived. I really wanted one for a long while and to have it die on you, well, it was discouraging.

I keep dancing around on ebay when it came to trying to buy a variegated jade plant. I finally purchased one today when the seller told me it was rooted in a pot. I figured I'd have a better chance of buying one that was growing in a pot rather than as a clipping.

If the plant survives just fine, then I'll have to start some cuttings just in case the main plant up-n-dies on me.

I'm not really a fan of Jades but this is one I'd grow. I love the variegation on the leaves...I almost traded for one on GW but I think the lady was waiting for me to send first without telling me. She never said anything about when she was shipping so I didn't either and I guess the trade just died.

Oh well.

Communication is important! Though I'll admit, it isn't reliable like ebay when you're trying to send/recieve. I did a trade a few years back where I had tons of wisteria seeds. I sent to as many as 20 people but I received much less in return. I don't like to nag so I just never said anything - though if the review forum was around, I'd list people that I didn't get seeds from (I don't have a single clue of who anyone is now. hehe).

I can't believe you don't like jade plants all that much! Though I suppose when it comes to cacti and succulents, jade plants are my most favorite.

The variegated jade looks great. I'll have to look around to buy one. Jades are so easy to grow from leaves I don't know why people don't trade leaves - much easier to ship than a potted plant.
