Portulacaria Afra (Dwarf Jade)

Notes:

X1 - This is a good time to defoliate the tree if necessary.

Generally, portulacaria's hold onto summer growth and should be treated more cautiously since these plants like high intensity sun. Once indoors, any change in optimal conditions can lead to leaf drop. Best not to do any styling on them during late fall or late winter.
