Information about the Green Jade Flower's habitat...

The Jade Vine (Strongylodon macrobotrys) is a native of the tropical forests of the Phillipines. Its flowers are the color of jade, and hang in bunches up to 90 cm long; each clawlike flower is about 7½ cm long. In its native Philippines, the jade vine's flowers are pollinated by bats.The rare and beautiful green jade flower is distinct for its blue-green petals and navy-purple center. The flowers have such an amazing colour and shape it’s hard to believe they are real. The endangered species is under threat by deforestation in its natural habitat in the Philippines.

More about the Green Jade Plant...

It is commonly known as jade plant, friendship tree, lucky plant or Money Plant, is a succulent plant with small pink or white flowers. It is common as a houseplant worldwide. It is sometimes referred to as the money tree; however, the tree Pachira aquatica is also so called.
Jades are evergreen plants with thick branches and smooth, rounded, fleshy leaves that grow in opposing pairs along the branches. Leaves are a rich jade green; some varieties may develop a red tinge on the edges of leaves when exposed to high levels of sunlight. New stem growth is the same color and texture as the leaves, but becomes brown and woody with age. Under the right conditions, they may produce small white or pink star-like flowers in early spring.
The jade plant lends itself easily to the bonsai form and is popular as an indoor bonsai.

Amazing information about it...

The jade plant does flower in Southern California where it is sometimes used as a hedge, but seldom do blooms show themselves when grown as a houseplant. The blooms are white, star-shaped affairs which grow to a half inch across and are borne in dense clusters at the top of the plant.


Jade plants are desert plants and have evolved several strategies to tolerate extended droughts. Their very succulence is the main means of combating drought, but they also have other tricks up their sleeve. Jade plant -- and as later learned -- many other kinds of plants adapted to drought conditions have adapted a unique way of photosynthesis that helps conserve water.  

Though not completely indestructible, it is hard to kill a jade plant. They are slow growing and can readily be dwarfed by keeping them in small pots. But if you want it to grow, it responds well to regular watering and fertilization during the summer months. A good strategy for maintaining the plant is to move it outside in the summer to the patio where it will tolerate either full sun or full shade. In the home in the winter it should be watered less often and receive fertilizer only if in a bright location. It will tolerate poor light conditions during the winter without flinching.


The most common problem of jade plant is mealybugs -- a white mass of cottony froth that attaches itself at the juncture of the leaf and stem. An easy way to control an outbreak is by using cotton swabs and rubbing alcohol and going after the pests one at a time.
