Jade plants are succulents (they hold water in their leaves), so they don't do well when sitting in constantly moist soil, so let the top 1 to 2 inches of soil dry out between waterings.
Indoors, this will probably mean watering once every 2 to 3 weeks and sure to check regularly.
Young plants should be kept in bright, indirect sunlight;
Large, well-established jade plants can handle more direct sunlight.
