Other ingredients: Succulent soil, foraged sea pebbles, perlite, peat moss.

About: For a little more info on why I love this plant, check out the main Gollum Jade plant listing here.

This specific jar came from a local thrift store. It looked like an older design and like it’d be a great home for a succulent. A lid (Fire Orange, Powder Blue or Hammered Iron can be included at no additional cost).


Watering: Water 1-2x per month or as soil dries out by adding water, letting it seep in until the upper part of the soil becomes visibly moist. A tiny bit of moisture at the bottom is okay, but the succulents should NEVER be sitting in wet swampy soil.

Keep in mind, the general advice for outdoor succulents in a cool to moderate climate is to water once per week in the summer and once per month in the winter allowing the plant to dry out between waterings, so as to mimic their native conditions of hot stormy summers and cold dry winters. Indoors, and in terrarium style planters, succulents will require even less water.

Lighting & Temperature: Bright, indirect light is ideal. These are generally intended for indoor use, or in a protected, covered outdoor space.

In these little mason jar homes, temperature should stay in the 70’s on average - basically, average indoor temperature.

Occasional swings up into the 80's and even down into the 50’s are absolutely fine. The main concern is that since these terrariums are in mason jars, care should be taken to ensure the roots aren’t exposed to adverse conditions. For instance, best not to leave it in a spot where the sun beats down on the glass all afternoon - don’t wanna steam those roots!

Jade plant is toxic to cats and dogs if ingested

One last thing…

You’ll see a lot of variation in the size and plumpness of the leaves based environment of the plant. The leaves will shrivel up and start to look a little wrinkly if it’s thirst, or they’ll become soggy like rotting produce if the plant is too wet. Most Jade plants are very resilient and can come back from a long time of not being watered, but chances of survival in cases of overwatering are much more slim.
