jade plant

A friend gave me this little Jade plant cutting in December. And look, Andi, I haven't killed it yet!! I even pinched the top to get it to grow more stems. And it is! Yay, me! Admittedly, this plant doesn't require much care. But, since a friend gave it to me, I care. :)

P.S. I don't have a macro lens - this was as good as it gets and it was taken on my phone.

We call this "Geldbaum" (money tree). Our plant is huge and it blooms sometimes with very tiny white blossoms. In the summer (mostly very hot and dry)  it's outside and in winter inside but in a cold place (stairs). Don't give to much water but don't let dry out either. We wait since decades for the fruits (money?).

I think, there will be more hope if you huddle two bank notes in a dark wallet  and expect  coins ...

That’s funny. We have a “money plant” here, too - it’s a perennial I think. But it gets these wafer thin round “things” - not really flowers. They dry beautifully and are used ornamentally. 

Yes,,I think I will put this little guy outside on the deck this summer.

Our mony tree is still recovering from the last tax bill (to much water ...).
