    If it were my plant, I would take a couple of cuttings to thin out the original and to start some new plants with. Leave most of the original intact. Then I would put it into a much larger ceramic or clay pot. Something nice and decorative that will last for years. And let it get really big. There is something about a large jade plant in a nice heavy pot that I find very pleasing. With those thick stems that get almost trunk-like they remind me of baobab trees or something.

    That's my idea. I think I am going to do that with mine. I have a large jade growing in the ground in front of my house. I have about a gazillian cuttings from it all over the place too. I think it is the same kind as the one in your pictures. It is in the shade and needs to be out in the light. Someone gave it to me years ago in this weird plastic container that wasn't really a pot for plants and that was falling apart from the sun light. I set it down where it is now and the plastic just dissentegrated. And there it stayed until you just inspired me to do something with it. Thanks Spike!

    here's my jade, Crassula 'Hobbit Ear' (or as I fondly refer to him, 'Shrek'). this is his baby picture, he's about 4" tall now and actually developing a trunk. i also recently acquired a variegated (green and white) jade but unfortunately i don't have a picture of it yet, that one is about 300 miles away at home right now! the other plant is a very young mamillaria, he's also grown a good two inches since the picture was taken.

    Don't have a pic of mine yet, will have to take one tonight.

    My understanding is that Jade plants liek to be a bit root bound and can endur it for several years. I recently repotted mine, because I had three trees in one pot and wanted to seperate it, so it's kind a limp and sad at the moment.
