The Jade tree is perfect for decorating gardens and interior spaces, not only for their wonderful leaves, but also because it is associated with good luck. In this article we explain how to make a Jade tree bloom .

Easy to reproduce and maintain, the Jade tree is a highly appreciated and widespread plant. Yet few people know that it can bloom and generate wonderful, highly fragrant star-shaped flowers, white in color with touches of purple.

The flowers of the Jade tree appear at the tips of the branches, in the form of clusters, generally in late winter and early spring.

In order for it to flower, the Jade tree does not have to be very young. On average, a plant can take up to 10 years to start producing flowers.

To make a Jade tree flourish, all you need to do is ensure the plant has the right conditions: avoid excess humidity and sun.

  1. Fertilize it properly . In order for the plant to flourish it is necessary to feed it well. Add a natural fertilizer or compost. To give the plant a boost you can apply an African violet fertilizer once a month, in spring and summer.
  2. Water it properly . One of the biggest mistakes in jade tree care is overwatering. Water the plant only when you notice that the soil has become completely dry.
  3. Expose it to the cold a bit . Some experts have shown that placing the Jade tree in a cold corner of the house during late autumn helps it to flower.

The Jade tree plant should be placed in brightly lit corners but not exposed to direct sunlight, which could burn its leaves.

Although there are plants that are perfect for the kitchen or bathroom, the Jade tree is not one of them. Excess humidity and heat make the plant suffer and will prevent it from flowering.
