I received so many inquiries on how I grow that big jade plant, asking me what my special secrets or tricks or what kind of special “steroid” food I give to that jade plant.
Well Folks, there is no secrets, no tricks, no special food. It is all about TLC- Tender Loving Care- yes Sir/Madame, just plain old fashion tender loving care. I talk to my plant every morning and nite—This is like my baby. I feed her good quality food, water her and make sure she is in good health. She is in the 55-60 degrees cool temperature of Seattle and located at the South West of the house near the big window.
I do not use any special add on fertilizer or any of those gimmicks that stick to the soil, all I use is the clean indoor soil bought from Home Depot(the cheapest brand), yes, the cheapest band.
Just think about it, you do not need any more fertilizer than the plant need. YOU ARE OVERFEEDING THE PLANT.Let the Plant take care of herself. The biggest problem in this country is people overfeed themselves. Like pets, most pets died or sick because the owners overfeed their pets. We do not really need to eat more than what our body requires. Oh well, that my next post….
Another big reason why I can grow almost anything besides giving Tender Loving Care is because I have Good Karma. Yes, I think I have the “green” touch. With Good Karma, the Ying and Yang are balance in the house.
Another personal thing to share with you all, my mother just passed away and I put a little bit of my mother and father ashes in the pot!!
Next post I will tell you the name for my baby jade plant…yes my baby jade plant is no longer a baby anymore—It is like a football blocker linesman.
Anyway, keep the emails coming and if I can help you grow a big jade plant and if you have any questions, shoot me an email at firstname.lastname@example.org
