Congrats on the plant and enjoy the flowers, aren’t they beautiful?
Not many people get the privilege to enjoy the beauty of the gorgeous flowers of the jade plants that brings out the best colors in the world.
How old is your jade plant? It takes about 14 years to get the 1st bloom and after that it will bloom regularly at around the same time of the 1st bloom and if you live in North America, it is around Christmas time.
Anyway, have a good time watching it and please take some pictures.
7 trees in the pot? It is best that you cut off the “trees” and give them away to your friends-share the bounty with your neighbors or you can stick them in another pot and let them grow.
The main reason why you want top prune those “trees” is because you want to divert all the energies to the main plant and best of all, to the flowers.
**** the trick is : I do not water the jade plant 9 days before she flowers because I want the jade plant to get a little bit of “stress out” and put all her energies on the blooming process.***
Your next question whether you can use the leaves to grow—NO
The leaves will be decayed and diseases will prevail.
If you want to grow another plant, just cut one of those shoots and just plant them in a pot of good clean soil.
I try to cut the shoots off from the inside so as not to be crowded and give them away to friend as presents.
It is like bonsai pruning. You do not want too many shoots growing from inside and crowd the main trunk—it provides air flow, good circulation- to prevent diseases and other flying diseases.
Another good idea is not to crowd too many plants in one spot. If you are bringing in new plants, it is best to quarantined them—that the reasons why the USDA has the quarantine policy.
Leaves look red around the edges: This common behavior and it is a good sign that the jade plant is growing aggressively and bursting with vibrant.
Anyway, I hope I have answered most of your questions and please share this growing jade plant site http://www.GrowingJadePlant.com to all your friends as it is the largest in the world and I am damn proud of it.
Have a good new year and may the year 2010 brings in more flowers.
Enjoy them !!!
Please do not hesitate to post more questions as I’ll reply as soon as possible.

Although ‘indoor’ is a relative term in this situation, you are high if you think you have the largest indoor jade plant in the world.
Also, your answer to the question posed by the poster above about fallen leaves is incorrect, it is common knowledge that a single leaf can easily be propagated. I have grown multiple jade plants from fallen leaves that took root, and they often do this on their own without any special attention. you do not need a full clipping by any means.
