How to Grow and Look After a Money Tree Plant With Flowers
How to Grow Money Tree(Jade) Plant
Money tree (Jade) is one plant I like growing too because it is easy to grow and needs very little care but it gives me pleasure especially when it starts to flower.
The money tree I have has flowered maybe four times now. The colour of the flower is pinkish white. Admittedly, the flowers bloom only once in a year but it's worth waiting for. Ah it's beautiful to look at. It took a while before it produced its lovely flowers but it is so amazing to look at. I did not even know money plant can flower but it did. One day it might bring me money too.
Here is how to grow Money Tree (Jade) plant:
1. Prepare a pot with multipurpose compost and water it.
2. Take a leaf or branch cutting from an existing Money Tree Plant and stick it on the pot with compost.
3. You can even grow from just one leaf or three, just dip half of each leaf in the pot with compost and watch it grow.
4. Then just water it once a week, but don't over water it.
5. It needs feeding with baby bio once in a while.
How to Care for Money Tree (Jade) Plant
Money Tree – once it's established just needs water and baby bio liquid fertiliser (that's what I use for my indoor plants) now and again. Just make sure you don't over water them, they don't want much to drink. So easy to grow and look after. It looks after itself really once you put it in the pot with compost.
If it outgrows it's pot, then it is time to repot in a bigger container. Sometimes you have to be careful because the leaves and branches are quite heavy so it is better to take off some of it. What I did with mine, I cut off some branches and planted it to another pot and it grew so I gave it to my neighbour. Money Tree plant grow so easily and needs very little care once the plant is established.
When to Repot Money Tree(Jade)
As the money tree grows, you will noticed that this plant grows very quickly when looked after well. When it is bigger and heavier than its pot, then it is time to repot. You can do one or two things, you can repot it to another bigger pot or you can just cut it to shape by cutting some of the branches and just change the compost and remove old roots or completely move it to a new bigger pot with new compost without cutting the branches. Personally, I prefer to repot it to a new bigger pot with new compost in.
