Baby jade succulent
Hi how can I help this poor plant? It looks like it's thirsty but I've been giving it good amount of water. It also has some white spots on it. I don't know what these spots are. Help!!

    Erin Is it possible to get a close up photo of the white spots? They could be mealy bugs which might be the cause of it's unhappiness - https://www.thesill.com/blogs/pests/bug-off-mealybugs

    Overall it looks OK from the photo you shared though! It's definitely wrinkly but you mentioned you've been watering it thoroughly so I'd be cautious about watering it more. For now, I'd recommend pruning off any dying foliage and letting the potting mix dry out completely in bright direct light.

      Sadni Close up of spots. I just sprayed it with neem oil spray to be sure to get rid of any pests.

        Pei Definitely looks like mealybugs to me! I will recommend reapplying the neem oil treatment every few days.

          Sadni Would 3 days a week be overkill? I don't want to stress my plant out too much. :/
          Thanks!

            Pei 3 days a week might be too much! two times should be fine. Just make sure you dilute the neem oil with water :)
