  1. We have a family tradition to put a jade plant at the front and rear entrances of the house. Mum always said it was for luck or to prevent bad luck specifically…when the duck eats the jade I guess that’s bad luck for the jade to be honest (I wonder if leaving a mostly dead stripped of leaves jade plant at the front and back of your house are still “in” on the luck thing? 😉 )
