The cure is simple: Carefully remove the plant from the pot and remove as much soil as possible. Leave it out in the fresh air for a couple of days. You’ll notice that the leaves and stems will dry. When that happens (again, a day or two is all that’s needed), repot your jade in a houseplant soil and a clean pot.
Keeping this in view, why are the branches of my jade plant falling off?
Jade leaves could fall prematurely from being too wet or too dry, for lack of nitrogen in the soil or for need of more sunlight. Quite often mealybugs attack this succulent. Remove them by hand, using a cotton swab dipped in alcohol; repeat treatment once a week until there are no more bugs.
Moreover, can a plant recover from stem rot?
Dealing with Root Rot
If the entire root system has already become mushy, it is too late to save the plant. However, if some healthy, white, firm roots exist, try to bring the plant back to good health by replanting in fresh soil with good drainage.
What does root rot look like?
The roots affected by root rot will look black and will feel mushy. Affected roots may literally fall off the plant when you touch them. Healthy roots may be black or pale, but they will feel firm and pliable.
Jade plants can lose their leaves due to overwatering and underwatering. In order to revive a dying jade plant (Crassula ovata), you have to emulate some of their growing conditions with an emphasis on watering with a good soak then allowing the soil to dry out, well draining soil and some direct sunlight.
Jade Plant Overwatering Symptoms: The symptoms of overwatering a Jade Plant are yellowing leaves, leaf drop, soft leaves and dry leaves. The soil will usually be waterlogged and the roots will show signs of root rot.
