How so I fix mold on my jade plant?

On December 31, 2012, in Jade Store, by admin

I have an outdoor Jade plant, it is in partial sun. I live on the California coast and it does get cold and wet. My question is: I recently was watering them when I noticed what looks like mold on a branch that was broken a while back. Instead of callousing like the others that have broken it is kind of sunken in and there is a whitish gray fuzziness to it. I’m wondering if it has just been too foggy and the wetness is causing it or if im watering too often(once a week) or if it may be bug related.

You are watering it WAY too often and it needs to be in FULL sun, not part shade. Jades are succulents. They are part of the cacti family. They store water in their leaves and stems. The soil should be sandy or very light so that water can drain away. I have 3 jade plants that I started from cuttings from a very large plant that is at least 30 years old, at the college greenhouse I am going to school at. I don’t water them until the lowest leaves become slightly soft, telling me that they are using their own water stores to survive. Then I water thoroughly. It will take 3-4 weeks before I need to water again.
