Don't really do #houseplant just have the Jade, Begonia (waiting to go outside) and the Spider plant in the conservatory 🌱

Thanks Sarah, I have no idea 😁 The previous tenants left it behind, It was in a small pot with no drainage holes and had a lot of rot, gave it a prune and repot, seems to be doing ok now @sieveheadsarah

Calling Angie 'Queen of all that is Succulent' (or anyone else in the know #advice I repotted this Jade Plant (back of picture) into a bigger terracotta pot 4wks ago, into gritty, sandy compost with crock in the bottom, then put it outside in a sunny spot raised on pot feet. Since then it has rained..in bucket loads...will the Jade be OK out there??

So long as the compost is free draining enough it should be fine. Jade plants can tolerate more water then other more fussy succulents 😊 all mine are out in the rain and we've had a lot of it here too 😣

Evening All 💚 I've 'inherited' this plant? Can someone tell me what it is? And what it likes would be handy? Little branches fall off it if you so much as look at it!! This pot also has no drainage holes 🤔 The main trunk is about 2" across and it's 2ft tall, but the pot is only 8" across and 12" high, which seems really small too?? #plantid

Looks like a Money tree.. if you are gifted one, they are meant to bring good fortune. (Chinese proverb i think), they are a succulent, so ok in a small pot and they propagate easy, sometimes by themselves.. someone else on here is doing a great job growing on a single ‘leaf’. Will tag you in if i see it👍🏻🙂
