After a difficult few years battling scale insects and definitely some neglect too, my jade plants were subjected to a rough haircut followed by a rather wet summer outdoors.  Now, they are looking rather promising, greening up my office at work

They're looking great! Mine got leggy this summer so I've chopped and made 3 smaller plants from one! I like the structure or form yours have!

I like the way the main stem and structure is getting rather chunky and thick. Mine had also become leggy @gjones, in addition to all the damaged leaves. They are getting quite old, I think bought at IKEA 5-6 years ago.

I like when they get a trunk - looks more like a tree! Is yours a dwarf or full size variety?

I think full size @gjones, and probably the most generic variety there is, considering where I got them and at such a low price. I've cut them before too, when they didn't behave, but never as hard as this year. They were actually headed for the compost heap when I decided to give them one last chance. I figured either they survive the cut or they don't. Keeping them as they had become wasn't an option.

They look so nice and healthy. Mine is still a baby and quite small. How old are yours?

@gjones I am proud to have kept them alive for a little over a year (my track record for indoor plants isn't good), but they are still quite small. Got them at IKEA😊
