>>I too lost my Jade plant. It would not support itself upright, and
the props were not sufficient. It finally wilted away despite my
repotting and soil conditioning. I wonder if these plants have a life
expectancy problem, or if a viral or bacterial infection gets to it.
I too would like an answer from anyone with experience out there.
