Description

Ripple Jade is a succulent plant in the stonecrop family that has the most ripply blue-green leaves of the jades. In NC it is grown as a houseplant. It can grow up to 4 feet tall and rarely blooms in cultivation. 

Provide bright light and well-drained soil and bring inside before a frost. Water only after the plant has dried out to prevent root rot. Plant in a potting medium appropriate for succulents and cacti in a clay pot with several drainage holes for best results.

It is easily propagated by stem cuttings which have been given 24-48 hours to dry before planting.
