I just picked up this cute fella from Lowe’s. I am not certain what to do with him? Is he healthy? #splitrockplant #succulent-help #help

I don’t have one of these little funky guys yet.

I’m just not sure what is happening with him. There has been zero change 🤷‍♀️😑 He doesn’t look very healthy. 🙁

@mollyocean 1. You need more grit in the soil. 2. If the bottom leaves feel squishy, it’s prob on its way out due to rot but if it feels firm (which it looks like it is) then it’s fine. They’re slow growers & it seems to me that yours could’ve just finished flowering & is currently splitting.

@veepaisal thank you so much! I think it is a tad squishy :( . I haven’t watered it since I bought it. I will add more grit to the soil. What about light? I currently have it in a south facing window.

@mollyocean how were the roots looking when you repotted it up? Give it a few days to acclimate to its new surroundings. South facing is fine.
