Jade plant

I took a cutting of my Jade plant for a friend at work. This succulent roots very easily, no rooting hormone required. I will water well and put a plastic dome over the top to keep the moisture in to prevent it from drying out. It is hard to believe that the mother plant below was once as small.
Jades are evergreen plants with thick branches and smooth, rounded, fleshy leaves that grow in opposing pairs along the branches. Under the right conditions, they may produce small white or pink star-like flowers in early spring.
