Re: jade plant


Hi Jesse
No, I'm really different than they are.  First of all I get 4 times
the amount of rain in winter and we are a lot colder.  Really different soils
too.  But thank you anyway.

Subject: Re: [CHAT] jade plant

Hi everybody....been
offline for a few weeks trying to catch up.
My cousin lived in the L.A. area
for years and had two big (BIG) jade plants
in her back yard.  They were
planted close to her house, and near the dryer
vent so it didn't freeze during
any "freak cold spell" and it had enough
shade in the heat of the summer that
they didn't get fried.  She had hers
for years...probably still there, but she
moved to New York.
Not sure if you are in the same "zone" as her though.....
