Hi, I'm Angela Price from Eden Condensed, Small Space Garden Design. And this is Garden Space. Today, I'm going to show you how to replant jade plant stems. Now, jade plant can get very big and you can simply take off the stems, root them in some rooting powder or put them directly into the ground. Also, you may find a jade plant in the nursery center in smaller pots like this. And sometimes you'll want to spread out the stems bigger than the way they are in the nursery pot. I have some really beautiful variegated jade plant here and I've got a pot here that has a few succulents in it. But I want to fill out the pot a little bit. So, I'm going to separate the stems on this one and replant it into this pot. I have some succulent soil here, it's nice, fast draining soil. and remember, succulents don't need a lot of water, especially jade plant, it hold its water in its leaves. So, maybe once every two weeks you'll need to give it a little bit of water. Also, most succulents don't like to be in hot direct sun all day. So, if they're in part sun or part shade, that's o.k., as long as they do get some sun throughout the day. So, what I'm going to do is, I'm going to carefully cradle this in my hand, these leaves tend to break off pretty easily, and ease it out of its pot. and then, I'm just going to take this gently and remove each particular stem and take some of the potting soil off, so I've got room. So, now I have a single stem here and open up a hole in my pot here and put that down into it. And then, I'm going to fill it with a little bit more succulent soil. I think I'm going to put one more in here, I've got a nice, big one. You see, the leaf just came off of this one, but you don't need to throw the leaves away because even the leaves at the base have root cells. So, you can actually just pop that into the ground and it will root within a couple of weeks. And then, I'm going to put this one in here too and get that down there. And that gives you kind of the general idea of how to plant your jade plant stems.
