Medium_screenshot_2019-01-13-11-00-20 Hello. Recently all but one of my very healthy jade plants collapsed. This happened overnight.

We have had a lot of rain and I have raised the pots more to give better drainage. They have been fed with seaweed solution.

Answer: Hi Ronda,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

From looking at the photo there is no stress that I can see on the plant. It is likely that the top part of the plant has is not receiving the support that it needs from the base due to the pot size.

To assist, we would recommend to replant the jade plant into a pot at least twice the size of the current pot. You can look at gently supporting the plant once transplanted with stakes.

For feeding we recommend using a product that has some nutrients included in the mix. Yates Dynamic Lifter Liquid is perfect for potted plants and is best applied every two weeks.

Kind regards,

Yates Horticulturist
