Hi Maegan,

Your plant is a type of Jade Plant (Crassula). These plants like bright indirect lightVery few houseplants should be placed in direct sun. High light refers only to bright indirect light since direct sun often burns the leaves of indoor houseplants. An area that is too hot and dry encourages Spider Mites and causes blooms to quickly fade. A northern exposure really doesn't provide enough light for high light plants. These plants need to be placed directly in front of an east-facing window, within 1-3 feet of a west-facing window, and within 5 ft. of a south facing window. A high light area has over 300 ft. candles of light. and dry soil. Do not water until the leaves become a little soft and flat. This can sometimes be up to three weeks. When you do water, water until it comes out the drip holes in the bottom of the pot. Never allow the plant to sit in water. Green leaves fall off when the plant is overwatered.
