I have a HUGE Jade Tree, which I have nurtured for many years, it is 6 feet tall, and 5 feet round, and the trunk is about 8 inches in circumference. The icing on the cake is, it flowers abundantly twice a year. It is now too big for my conservatory and so I have decided to send it to a new home where it will live in an orangery. The thing is, I don't want to give the large terracotta pot away. Will it be alright to take it out of the pot, wrap the huge root ball in a plastic sack, and re pot it when it gets to it's new home? I think I will shed a tear or two when it leaves here.
I should think it would be fine in the new owners pot.
Have you taken some cuttings for yourself?
That way you still have a bit of the original.
I too would be very attached to a plant like that.
