I only recently noticed that my grandad was watering my Jade plant very frequently without me knowing as he doesnt understand its a succulent. Its sitting in a pot and the pot is placed into a water tight decorative container. But the bad thing is every time the Jad eas watered the water drained and was gradually filling up to container. I noticed today that the container filled and submerged the pot and the roots. I drained the water but the roots are sopping. I am surprised how it didnt rot ages ago when he kept watering it very often. Will it rot or would it be ok if i let it dry out. Should I take a cutting and let it callus and root it just in case the worst is to happen. Please help I dont want my Jade plant to rot on me.

Thank You,
Olwas2013

By all means take a cutting but I would change the soil and leave it out in this good weather during the day... Hopefully it will dry out
