Is this a Jade plant?

I'm unsure of what this is, I know it's a succulent of some variety.

yup. Doesn't look very vigorous. Give it more light.

Thank you, I recently moved it to a brighter location as it has been losing leaves like crazy.

It's Portulacaria afra, also known as Elephant Bush or less often, as dwarf jade plant. Sometimes it's used as a bonsai subject. More light will benefit it greatly.

That potting mix looks bone dry.....is it? Even succulents require good watering.

I currently have it as part of a fairy garden that I am trying to start. The potting mix is dry on top, but it pretty moist yet just a little deeper. Thank you for the help=]

Hi again, um it is still loosing leaves. Some look really healthy green and there is possibly some new growth. Could it just be going through a stage from receiving too little light? Will it be okay now that it has more?

try the houseplant forum ..

the leaves on mine.. root .. go figure on that ...

you have it in a very peaty.. high water retentive media.. a cactus mix might do it better ... try googling care of such ...

two days in new light.. will have no impact ... you need to think in terms of weeks ... if not months ... leaves will continue to fall off.. meanwhile
