Large Jade Succulent Bonsai (Crassula)
Jade plants are one of the most popular succulents! Not even just succulents, Jade plants are one of the most popular houseplants! And this particular Jade plant has been grown to have a massively THICK stalk. The thick stalk and foliage position gives the plant a bonsai look or a mini tree look. Having a mini tree that's also a succulent? Yes please!
Unlike a typical bonsai tree, this mini tree succulent is actually very easy care because as like any other succulents, their juicy leaves hold water in reserve for when it is thirsty! It tolerates drought very well and can withstand a good deal of harsh direct light. So if you want to enhance your bright living room or bed room, AND want a no fuss plant, THIS is your plant!
Obviously, like any other succulent, this plant is slow growing, but if you have enough light, the plant will grow faster, but just never too fast! That's okay, the beauty is in the shape of this plant, it'll just save you some pruning time and give you more appreciation time!
You will at least need a spot that is naturally well lit (the more light the better), and water the plant when the first 2-3 inches of the soil is very dry!
