Jade plant (Crassula ovata, shown): This is a succulent, meaning that it stores water in its leaves and stems. It will take cool winter temperatures and it also can be watered less at that time. Such treatment in winter is likely to result in the jade plant flowering. Many other succulents and cacti also tolerate a coldish winter if they are kept dry.
