Jade Plant with Soft Leaves

My indoor Jade plant (about 7 months old) seems to have gone soft in the leaves. When touching my other Jade plant leaves, they seem much more firm and full. I do not think overwatering is the problem as I have been very careful about this.

Any thoughts?

Re: Jade Plant with Soft Leaves

Likely sources of difficulty to check, in addition to the too wet you have mentioned are too dry and too cold.

"Likely sources of difficulty to check"

I am sorry - I am not quite sure what you mean by that.
It is in the same enviornment with my other jade plants so I don't think it is the temperature. Also, it has a vibrant green color, which to me indicates it has ample sunlight.

Re: Jade Plant with Soft Leaves

Some of the lower leaves on my jades always go soft just before they fall off at this time of year. There might be no problem at all.
