i aquired a jade plant from an old neighbor. she was moving back to new jersey, and gave it to my husband and i. i thought it looked really neat, and have enjoyed watching it grow. it's really easy to care for; it enjoys shade and doesn't need much water. if you overwater, it tends to yellow. overall, a very beautiful plant that would make a great fit into any landscape! =)
