Senecio Jacobsenii, or Trailing/Vining/Weeping Jade, is a creeping, easy-care succulent species native to Kenya and Tanzania. Once belonging to Senecio genus, Jacobsenii is now reclassified and put into the Kleinia family. Jacobsenii means Niels Jacobsen- the name of a Danish professor specializing in succulents.
Trailing Jade Senecio Jacobsenii is often confused with Crassula Jade, but they are two different species. They both have flat, teardrop-shaped leaves densely packed around thick succulent stems, but Crassula Jade (or Crassula ovata) does not have trailing vines.
Senecio Jacobsenii has lush green leaves that turn into vibrant magenta and bordeaux color when sun stressed. This plant can trail up to 4 feet in length.
During the growing season in Spring-Summer, Senecio Jacobsenii blooms orange flowers with a cheesy smell.
Trailing Jade thrives in bright light and can tolerate direct sunlight. Don't forget to gradually acclimate your plant if you move it from an indirect lighting condition to a new spot with direct sunlight.
As a succulent, Trailing Jade is drought tolerant and has a low watering need. Water only when the soil is dry to the touch, using the soak and dry method. Drain well after each watering to avoid root rot.
This succulent loves sandy, well-draining soil. It grows well in any ready-made succulent and cactus soil mix, and you can also make your own soil by mixing coarse sand and perlite with loose, grainy soil.
Trailing Jade thrives in average room temperatures (between 65°F-80°F) and humidity (40-50%). This plant can tolerate temperatures as low as 30°F
This plant should be fertilized once during the growing season (spring/summer) with a diluted houseplant fertilizer.

Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grown in, depending on availability or time of year.
Provide porous soil with adequate drainage, pots with drainage hole are recommended. Bright, filtered
light and ample airflow. Water thoroughly when soil is dry to the touch. Never let your succulents sit in water. Do
NOT water on the leaves. If you water from beneath by letting the plant sit in a saucer of water, make sure to pour
off any excess water after a few minutes.
The hotter it is outside, the faster your soil will dry out, so you’ll need to water more often if you live in a hot
area. Water with caution in winter, as the plant can lose its roots if the soil stays cold and wet for extended
periods; protect from frost to prevent scarring.
