The first things you should look at is too much water or two much sun. Also closely examine the leaves and soil for insect activity. Barring any of these, you can take a photo to a garden center so they can help you identify the problem.

One of the most common reasons for jade plants dying is overwatering. Jade plants are succulents, and as such require only an occasional through watering.

Jade plant roots are very sensitive to worms and insects also attack it easily. So remember one thing when you plant the jade plant you can use the sand, red soil and manure in proper mix, then plant it. It won't die.

Make sure that you are not overwatering it. Jade plants do not like a lot of excess moisture. Only water your plant when it feels dry to the touch and do not allow it to sit in a puddle. Also make sure that your plant has diffuse light. Direct light isn't good, but a closet won't work either.

I would go to a local nursery and ask what they have in stock to help with the curtain situation. I would make sure the sunshine is not too direct on the plant and also make sure you are not over watering the plant. If you do these things you may be able to save the plant.

It may be due to over watering. Check that the plant has free draining soil or potting mix and hold back on the water. If it is a pot, re-pot it and cut off any dead looking roots. Also, do not over fertilize the plant as they do fine with minimal fertilizer.

The jade plant is considered a succulent plant that is finicky when overwatered and may cause the leaves to drop if overwatered. The jade plant needs very little watering in the winter.

Go to a greenhouse and buy some jobes plant spikes and put them in around the base of the plant and they will give it what it is lacking.

Water it and try transplanting into a better soil. Fertilizer is also known to help out. There are some great plant foods out there.
