BRIEF: Are Jade plants poisonous to children?


QUESTION:
Is the Jade Tree/Plant a poisonous plant to children if they were to put a leaf in their mouths?

ANSWER:

Jade plant is in the Stonecrop family which has some very toxic species, but Jade Plant itself is only known to cause intestinal irritation, diarrhea, etc. I would not eat it. Kids should be cautioned against it, but I don't think you need to pull them out.
