What in the heck did I do my beautiful Tippy? I left on vacation for 4 days and came home to this? Does it look over or underwatered (I have a hard time telling the difference with succulents) Thanks! #succulent
To tell if it's over or under watered stick a wooden skewer into the soil. If it comes out clean, it's dry and can be watered. I'd repot it with some free draining compost. You can use cactus compost or mix your own. Break off the sickly looking leaves and given time it'll start to produce new plants where the old leaves were.
It's officially dead. I killed it. I think I know what happened. I watered it before we left and then I left it outside for a bit. It is very hot here and I think I boiled it. I hope some of the leaves I saved are viable. The stem is black and is rotten. ☹️Oops
Oh nooo ! Sounds like rot yes .Really upsetting .Its so hard to not water if its going to be hot but they do tend to steam as the wet soil heats up so better to be mean and not water in the heat .Sorry about your plant .Even the succulent experts have this issue in Australia with our summer so don't be hard on yourself 😆
