One of our favorite plants in our Succulent Plan, the jade plant (Crassula) is simple to care for and keep healthy. They can be slow-growing, and prefer direct sun, but pay off with shows of delicate flowers among their sturdy leaves. A warning that curious pets should be kept away as jades can be toxic to four-legged friends.
