It needs transplanting into a bigger pot

When should I do this and how big should the pot be?

I forgot to put it outside this year and it now spindly



There is one large branch and that is making it top sideways heavy

How can I cure that??

Why not prune it back to help it "bulk up"? Actually, I don't think I would repot it, as they really can thrive in very crowded conditions. Most jades will be more than happy with neglect! If you really want to repot it I would repot it now, before the daylight starts to diminsh. Use the cuttings to start new plants, or add them to the pot with the mother plant to create a fuller pot if you want.
