User asked on June 2005:
My jade is dying, why? I transplanted it when I brought it home, one pot seems to be doing fine the other is all soft and mushy. Have had jade plants in theast with no peoblems.

We replied:
Were both of your jades transplanted under the same conditions (for example, are they both the same size, and were they transplanted into the same size pots)? Also, are they being treated to the same conditions?

Jades do like to be kept on the dry side, and can develop rot if they are kept too wet (either from getting too much water or being in a pot that's too large). I am wondering, could the pot that it was transplanted to be too big for it?
