The jade plant is a popular succulent grown both outdoors and indoors. It is a hardy evergreen plant native of South Africa with smooth, rounded, fleshly leaves which grow in opposing pairs. The colour of the leaves are jade and new branches start off jade that develop into a brown colour as it ages, hence its name.
The jade plant itself is becoming popular in use for Feng Shui. The southeast of a home is the area for wealth and prosperity, which is where one would place a jade plant due to this plants symbolism of prosperity.
