help with drooping jade
hi everyone. thanks in advance for any help!
i just returned from a long weekend away to find my jade plant in some rough shape. it is a somewhat leggy plant grown to around 18 inches tall from a 3 leave clipping i found on the ground 6 years ago. it has had some rough goes in its life (once a window fell on it snapping it off at its base) but it is hearty and always snaps back.
anyway, i came home and half of the branches of the plant were lying flat. drooped over and splayed out. a handful of leaves had also fallen off. the leaves look perfectly in tact. firm and bright green. the branches are a bit wrinkly and a tiny bit soft when squeezed at the trunk but not bad. the soil is loose and dry as far deep as my finger will go in the pot.
this happened last summer also when we had a spell of temps in the high 90s. it bounced back fine but i want to make sure i am doing all i can for it.
i have given it a little shake to check for more loose leaves. i staked and tied all of the branches up straight. i moved it to the coolest room in the house with the best circulation (though not good sunlight at all)
should i just wait it out? i thought about repotting but am worried i will cause more damage. any other advice?
