I am a big jade plant lover and grow quite a few of them . Great gifts !
If you ever have a reocurring mealy bugs problems with your indoor Jades and have tried everything here is a simple tip.
When it is warm place the plant outside near an area where their are small ants (doesn't have to be right next the ants). For some reason these bugs are a favorite of ants . Only thing is that you need to leave it there awhile to kill the next generation of these annoying bugs. Works for me and I haven't seen them for many seasons.

Thank you! What a great idea. My jade plant and a couple other boys are going to take a field trip today....
