Also known as jade plants, this variety, known as 'hobbit', has narrower leaves than traditional jade plants. They are easy-to-grow succulents native to South Africa and Mozambique. In some cultures, they are considered symbols of good luck, prosperity, or friendship.
These plants are fairly undemanding and respond well in situations with moderate light and moisture and over a wide range of temperatures. While jade plants are tolerant of less than favorable conditions, they will be happier when provided with more optimum conditions. Jade plants can live a long time and may reach 5 foot or so in height. Mature plants produce starry white or pink blossoms during the winter months.
