Look what a friend sent me yesterday. A huge box of jade plant clippings. Geez! hehe.

Today I got them all potted.

As for my other jades, most of them are still hanging in there. I did find out that one jade plant died and possibly another is on the process of shriveling up. Not sure why now... since I repotted them all. Frustrating.

Caved in...

I caved in and bought more jade plants!

The side view didn't do much justice to the shorter jade plant. The shorter jade plant is actually very wide.

This picture here shows how wide the shorter jade plant is! The taller jade plant is behind it. Looks puny now, don't it? hehe.

Today was pretty productive. I headed to a local nursery to see if they had anything. I saw huge Barrel Cacti through the clear plastic when approaching but after I stepped in, they were all dying from the bottom up. There were a couple of sedums but... that was pretty much it. Nothing else.

I asked the guy if he had any jade plants. He fetched one from a greenhouse from across the road. He said that he was going to make cuttings from the ones he had left but I was more than welcome to buy the tall skinny one. I noticed that there was yellow/red coloring on it and this was the same nursery that I bought my Hummel Sunset from. I jumped on it. He told me it was $10 and I was happy to take it.

Then I visited another nursery nearby and they had a batch of jade plants that were just HUGE. They were all $10 each. I didn't see any red/yellowing so I figured these have to be regular jade plants. I snatched one up. hehe.

I'm happy! It was $20 well spent.

Surviving Jades

I repotted what was left of the jades today. New leaves are popping out and I hope they'll thrive this summer. I still have whatever little that is left of my Ms. Jade that started all of this. I have some gollum and hobbit. I believe I may have lost all the Hummel Sunset or the regular jade plant. Not sure. The jade plant on the very far right - that may be a regular jade plant or a hummel sunset. Time will tell if the leaves change colors after it gets bigger.
