hi! my name is liz & i'm sort-of a gardener. i've had a bamboo plant for a number of months & it has done surprisingly well. last night i bought a small plant (which i have learned is a jade plant) & am very excited. i've had a large, ceramic pot that i've wanted to put something in for awhile.

does anyone have advice on the jade? i know it shouldn't be watered often during the winter & would like 4hrs of sunlight a day. i'm not sure if the ceramic pot would be a good choice - maybe as long as i get good draining soil? also - should i be worried about the white spots? are the white spots on the bamboo plant worrisome? also - i'm in southern/west michigan if it makes any difference! thanks for any advice & help. i'm very excited to start a houseplant collection! ♥ liz

    I’ve read that the white dots on jade plants are just salt crystal deposits and are nothing to worry about. But if you get little cotton balls at the joints where the leaves meet the stem that is mealy bugs. You can wipe off the salt deposits off with rubbing alcohol.
