I couldn't decide which of these baby jade plants I liked best, so I posted them all. Each has something different about them that appealed to me. I took these photos with my macro lens. You might remember the photo of a very large jade plant I posted some time back (Feb 1), and this is not the same plant. If you look very carefully at the right corner of the 3rd photo, you'll see the hint of something pink. That's a milk jug cap! So this is an itty, bitty little Jade plant.
My sister gave me this plant when it wasn't much more than one little branch with a few leaves.
A package arrived from my sister in the mail one day with this plant. And a note that said "somehow" this little plant "fell" into my sister's pocket at a botanical garden, so she mailed it to me.
I couldn't excactly turn the poor little plant out into the cold, so this little waif has
been sitting in my kitchen window, just doing its own little job of pulling carbon dioxide
from the air.
Someday, I might take this plant on a field trip to visit the humongous plant in my office,
but I'd hate to give it a complex if it has any "size" issues. (I don't actually know if it's a girl or boy.)
So that's my green for the day!
