I have two Jade plants on both the leaves have started becoming
on one of the plants the leaves are no longer stiff and strong, but a
little wrinkly and and feel soft. this is on most leaves
on the other plant again some yellow and red leaves, but i new leaves
growing are an odd shape - they look like the clubs picture in a packet
both plants are next to each other on my window sill. they get a lot of
light, but not directly as i have a net curtain between the window and
I rarely water it..but i cant be sure if anyone else in my house hold
has been watering it.

Wrinkly and soft is what happens when the plant has been without water
for along time and is using up the reserves in its leaves. You could
check how dry the soil is (tip the plant out out the pot if necessary).
Yellow and red shouldn't happen, and the misshapen new leaves make me
suspect some pest. If you can't see anything obvious, look for red
spider, which will appear as a light dusting mainly on the undersides of
Yellowing and shriveling is from lack of water, the leaves turning
reddish is from too intense sunlight, this is common with jade plants
I have a few jade plants growing outdoors, in the ground, they get no
care whatsoever and flourish because in the ground they need no care,
they even propogate by bits falling off and rooting. But yours are in
pots, and you don't care for them nor do you have any idea who is
caring for them if anyone... so WTF do you want us to do, do you have
any children, do you at least pay child support, I bet you don't feed
them either, you probably don't know their names.
You should hire a plant nanny... sounds like your potted plants need
repotting, and then a modicum of basic care... by your own words you
admit that you're too irresponsible to care for one of the easiest
Why is it that you have to find the most destructive way possible of dealing
with people? Any apparent joke that you make will be at the expense of
somebody else. You constantly mock and never praise, you see the worst and
never enjoy. You constantly carp about other people's behaviour, how they
are doing wrong, they are cheap, they are careless, etc etc. If humanity is
such a trial to you why deal with others at all? Why not pull the plug on
that computer and sit and fester in your own misery and leave the rest of us
alone. You are a sorry specimen when the only face you ever show is being
mean and petty to strangers who have done nothing to harm you.

A Jade plant is unlikely to die without water. But, if watered twice
a week or more, it may quickly turn to mush and die. Empty the saucer
within one hour of watering. One, and only one person should water
any given plant. During the winter I water the jade plant once a
month or hold off water until I can see one leaf beginning to wither.
Other times the Jade plant gets watered twice a month, perhaps a
little more than a cactus plant.
If your Jade plant has red leaf edges, it is telling you it is getting
enough light. I suspect yellowing of the leaves may mean too little
light or burning from fertilizer (or other chemical). The jade plant
is an "easy care" plant--too frequent overwatering is its biggest
