comment Should I Repot a Tall and Spindly Jade Plant?
I disagree with your assessment that the pot is too small. Jade are very happy to be pot bound. It's true that they can become top heavy so clay pots are always a good idea. I would cut this one back and move it to a higher light location.

I see that you are in the Canary Islands. That is not a cactus. I'm sure other readers can identify it. How long has it been in the ground?

comment Am I over watering flowering plants
Sick for sure, is the soil wet, is the drain tray in the bottom full of water? If the top of the soil is dry then it needs water.
