jade plant drooping

Asked June 19, 2015, 1:07 PM EDT

I have a jade that has been thriving in an eastern window until this morning - the leaves look fine but the plant is drooping over the side (it was away from the light - almost like it's trying to run away). I've moved it outside next to another jade which seems to like it's space. The pot size is good (it's actually in a larger pot) and I water once a week gently and allow it to drain. Any other suggestions?

Jade plants are somewhat sensitive to light levels and the eastern light may have been to bright or too direct for the plant--especially since we have such long days in Colorado and the sun comes up before 6am. I would suggest trying to move it into a more shaded location--especially from the afternoon sun. It sounds like you're doing everything else right. Good luck!
