Succulent Questions

jade plant

Hi, I was wondering if it is possible for succulents such as Jade to do okay in the same room as a wood stove? Also, what is the best way to water them when they are very dry and the soil doesn’t really absorb the water?


Yes, your jade will do fine in a room with a wood stove.  Jades prefer a bright light and will tolerate the dry air.  When the soil becomes so dry that the water runs right through the pot it is best to take it to a sink or bath if space allow and give it a good soak.  Let the water run through and then soak again.  It can take some time for the soil to reabsorb the water.  You could also set it in a water bath for 20 minutes or so.  If you can not move the pot just take your time watering just adding a little at a time so that it does not spill everywhere!  I hope this helps 🙂
