To strengthen the plant and to help it grow faster the Dude recommends utilizing his BioShot when planting succulents. This helps with their sturdiness as a plant and their overall health.

Common Name: Jade Plant
Scientific Name: Crassula ovata
-Care Recommendations By The Dude-
Best for These Animals:
Bio Dude Substrates: TerraFirma, TerraSahara, Some TerraAranea
Soil Depth: Shallow to Moderate with proper drainage
Humidity & Misting: 0%-40% / Not Required
Mature Plant Size & Root System: Jade plants are succulent shrubs that can get large and "woody" with age, can be easily pruned (and propagated!) / Shallow, wide fibrous root system will develop a thicker central root with age
Temperature Tolerance & Placement in the Terrarium: High temperature & drought tolerant / Front (low) or corner placement recommended
Edible & Side Effects if Ingested: Non-Toxic if consumed though these succulents are typically used for ornamental not edible purposes. When ingested succulents help re-hydrate your pet as well as provide enrichment for your animals by allowing them to instinctively forage for food. Excessive consumption of succulents can cause runnier stool, but it will not hurt your herbivore or omnivore.
