Good morning. Can anyone help please? I know very little about succulents. My lovely son bought these for me for Fathers Day. I’ve had them on an outside table in a mixture of very sunny and occasionally raining conditions (always warm though). Does anyone know what would have caused the black spots? Is that sun burning through raindrops?? Thank you for any advice 😊
I’m no expert but is the soil wet - mine is nearly always dry?? I think they need good drainage- mine are outside against the wall so sheltered - hope it helps- my clematis cuttings have died by the way - so started taking some and putting it straight in pots! 😉
@sharonhayden sorry to hear about the clematis. I still haven’t tried mine yet as the neighbour’s is growing so prolifically I’m not actually sure where I would put it!! (But I should do it just in case he decides to cut his back!) Great advice on the succulents. They did get a little waterlogged in a recent rain shower so that could be it.
They really aren't fans of getting wet, especially not when water ends up sitting on them, I'm afraid. @sharonhayden is right about drainage. Ideally they need a mix of 50% compost and 50% grit. I'd consider growing them indoors on a bright windowsill.
Thank you @Soph1e. They are back inside again now. I’ll only take them out when the weather’s good. Do you know if those black scars will heal or if they’re permanent? The were perfect specimens before this happened! 🤦🏼♂️
