Variegated Jade

I wrote a few days ago about my Jade Plant . Jades are beautiful in their deep rich greens. There are many varieties of Jade so I started collecting and propagating some of them. I found a variegated Jade (crassula ovata variegata) at a greenhouse and it is a beauty with thick variegated leaves of green, white and pink. Take a look.

Remember how easy these are to propagate using leaf cuttings. Let the leaf sit in the sun for a couple days until it forms a callous and then plant in soil. Make sure the soil is fifty percent gravel or perlite. It needs to be able to drain easily and water when dry. It's that easy.
