Crassula Ovata     alt: Crassula Argentea, Crassula Portulacea


All the jade shown here are cuttings from this plant.
My First Stem Cutting

my first propagation
Planted early in 2001, this cutting was taken from the plant on the left. It's original height was approximately 3 inches, it is now 8 inches high.
Another Stem Cutting

another successful cutting
Planted in May 2001. The smaller shoot on the left is totally new growth.
New Growth 2002

new budding
Different New Growth

new growth 2002
Typically, jade buds as seen on the left. This specimen is budding on the outside of established leaves. I believe this new growth will eventually become full stems holding its own leaves.
Attempting Leaf Propagation

next attempt at leaf propagation
Planted around March 1, 2002, these leaves were also taken from the grandaddy plant.
Example of Leaf Propagation

I wish I could take credit for getting this leaf to sprout. But I found it just doing it's magic in the bottom of the planter.

Cutting of the Main Plant

First cutting of 'string of pearls'
As I was repotting the plant on the left, a 'string' fell off. I've stuck it in some dirt and we'll see if it takes.
Another Problem Child

Although many of the runners have died off (compare with picture above) new growth is happening at the ends of the runners surviving. Click image for larger view.
