    Is my plant meant to droop down? I repotted it over a year ago and now it's branches have dropped, they used to be upright and tall. The plant has lots of new growth but I wondered if it's struggling?

    Hi Sara.

    That's a Jade plant and your plant looks healthy to me. They do sometimes droop down like that. My uncle has a really really big and old jade plant and it has really thick trunks and it droops down to the sides of the pot. I too have some Jade and I really do not like it when it droops down like that. What I do is I take the plant and plant it deeper so that it can better support the parts on top. I find that it has more stability that way. Another thing that I do is I trim any branches that droops down, basically forcing the plant to grow the way I want it to grow.

    I hope that helps. Good luck
