Zone 5a. Indoor w/ grow light. Started working with plants 3 years ago. In love with succulents so I’m trying to learn EVERYTHING.

The leaves on this guy are suddenly curving in and getting kind of twisty. Does it need more water? Have I done something wrong? They feel a tad soft. 😩 #help

Thanks @cyndi I’m worried I may have overwatered it maybe? I felt bad I forgot to water my plants before I went on vacation so I may be over compensating. Some of the leaves are almost bent in half vertically.

Yeah I do know that. I checked the dirt and it was completely dry all the way down. So I gave it some water and I’ll see what that does. Give it plenty of time to dry out again.

These are very very dehydrated. I would give them a deep watering. Have they been exposed to cold drafts lately?? If they arent absorbing water, it could be their roots are dead. @joodie

@veepaisal No cold drafts. The room all my plants are in gets warmer than the rest of the house because of all my grow lights so it stays comfortable in there all the time. I did water it and it’s starting to feel more firm. Thanks!

Was looking for one of these at 5 different stores. Finally found it. Anyways, it’s beautiful but kinda big. So I’m basically out of room for more plants currently. ☹️ #sansevieria

Oh... also I see I have been misspelling it. That explains it. Sansevieria... gotta remember that. 🤪
