The jade plant and other succulents should not be watered as often as most other houseplants. When watering succulents, continue to apply water until water begins to flow out the drainage holes in the bottom of the container. Discard the excess water. After watering, the potting mix should be allowed to dry out completely before the succulents are watered again. Succulents should be watered more frequently in spring and summer than in fall and winter.
