I'm very sorry I purchased this. This was a slow death that I could not stop. Slow but sure all the leaves fell off, ultimately killing the plant. I should have returned it when I saw this happening. I have a green thumb and could not get this to take. What I find curious is that there are nothing but 5 star reviews. When I purchased this back in September there were a number of reviews that had the same complaint as I'm writing about. They are now removed. I thought I could do better. Obviously not. Buyer beware.
The main thing to remember with this lovely plant is to water it less than you think you should, a lot less. It is very forgiving if you forget to water it for way too long. It is a happy plant which loves to grow new leaves. You can tell how much it wants to thrive by the way it grows multiple leaves from wherever you prune it. It is very easy to prune.
I never take the time to write product reviews, but I was so impressed with this tree and how quickly it arrived that I wanted to let others know about my experience.
My jade tree arrived within a week of the day that I ordered it, and in perfect condition. I was also pleased with how closely my actual tree resembled the image of the dwarf jade on this website. This is my first bonsai, and I will definitely return to homedepot.com to buy any future trees.
