Identifying a Houseplant

I was given this plant as a gift, but have no idea what species it is. I also don't know how best to look after it. I would be grateful for any pointers!

It is in the succulent family, seen in Nurseries all around this area.

It's definitely a jade plant. If you pick off leaves lower, you can form it into a tree. If you pinch off the branches, it will grow into two more, allowing you to form a tree even more. But keep in mind, it grows relatively slowly. I have had some of my jades for years.

Any leaves or branches you remove will easily grow into a new plant. They are remarkably hearty and need very little water. I have found plant starts that were dried out behind my couch that were still able to green up and grow. A fun and rewarding plant.

I want to add: do not overwater.

We use to call this a rubber plant, and you must keep clean with water as it collects dust, by wiping off with damp cloth and just sprinkle a litter water every day on any plant like a spring shower, no need to drown them.

A very easy to maintain plant. These can often be planted in tiny rocks as a rock garden.

I'd agree that this is a jade plant or sometimes called a money plant because of the belief that it is a lucky plant to keep.

And if you repot it fairly frequently into progressively larger pots, it can grow to be quite tall. It does well in full sunlight but will require more frequent watering.

You have a healthy looking jade plant. I looks good nestled in with other plants. Standing alone in an unusual pot it gives a minimalist look. It is also one of the plants that can be trained as a bonsai. Have fun with it.
