I have owned my Dwarf Jade for several years now and have always let the soil go almost completely dry before watering, Until Recently !! .
My Dwarf Jade has recently decided it likes moist soil all the time. If I start letting the soil dry out, like I used to, it soaks up water from one or more of its leaves witch then dies and falls off.
It is also growing like crazy lately. Yesterday I chopped it back heavily, thinking I could let the soil dry out some before watering again( because it has alot fewer leafs and branches now) but nope last night it sucked another couple of larger leafs dry and they fell off today.
I watered today and gave it a 1/3 fertilizer dose, I cant let the soil dry out much at all right now or it sucks moisture from its leaves. I am wondering if this is normal ? It has never happened with this Bonsai before, but maybe someone else has had this happen?
When ever I try to let the soil dry out some before I water again. It sucks another leaf or two dry and they fall off.
It is in a high organic soil( witch I don't like) I thought it would hold to much moisture. But at the time it was all I had. It was re-potted this spring about a month ago, no root trimming was done.
