Q. How do I prune my drooping (growing down) jade plant? I’d like it to be more tree-like.


Jade plants often droop if they are not getting enough sunlight. When the plants are in low light conditoins the stems are weak and elongated. If you trim the growth of the plant you can root the stems to propagate it but most importantly if you trim your plant back place it in more sunlight so the new growth doesn't have the same issue. Stems can be cut just above a node (a joint in the stem). Rather than prune the plant moving it into brighter light will encourage new stronger growth.
