Jade Plants PDF Print E-mail

jadebigCommon names: jade

Description: These easy-to-grow succulents have shiny, medium green, elliptical leaves, which reach 1 to 2 inches long, and are often edged in red. Their leaves are 1 to 2 inches long, and the plants grow 18 to 30 inches tall. They sometimes have tiny pinkish-white flowers.

Special care: Their worst two enemies are overwatering and low light. They prefer bright light, but direct sun of more than four hours can cause leave scorch. Maintain soil on the dry side. Water soil thoroughly, then allow it to become completely dry before watering again. Don't overwater; this results in injury to delicate roots. The plants tolerate lower light levels, but their growth habit has a more open, elongated appearance. With higher light levels, the plants produce a more sturdy, compact growth habit.

Florists have always known that flowers make people happy, and now scientific research proves flower power. Aboutflowers.com highlights university research proving the emotional and behavioral benefits of flowers and plants. Rutgers research shows that the presence of flowers triggers happy emotions, heightens feelings of life satisfaction and affects social behavior in a positive manner far beyond what is normally believed. Another Rutgers study demonstrates that flowers ease depression, inspire social networking and refresh memory as we age. A Harvard study reveals that people feel more compassionate toward others, have less worry and anxiety, and feel less depressed when fresh cut flowers are present in the home. And a Texas A&M study demonstrates that workers' idea generation, creative performance and problem-solving skills improve substantially in workplace environments that include flowers and plants.
