It's pretty much all lithops, all the time -- in excruciating detail. (I might have a problem.) Consider yourselves warned. NJ USA Zone 7a

Here we go folks. Cause of death: rotten in the core. Case closed. #echeveriapurpusorum #sicklysucculent #sickplant #echeveria-purpusorum #rip (glad it wasn't my fault!)

Aha. Found this rot/bugmunching-looking area inside the main core of the stem. I think this could be the cause of death. #echeveriapurpusorum #sicklysucculent #sickplant #echeveria-purpusorum #rip

#echeveriapurpusorum autopsy #sickplant #sicklysucculent #echeveria-purpusorum Is the white fuzz a symptom of #mealybugs ? I didn't see any.

My #echeveriapurpusorum is NOT happy. It miiiight have already been sick when I got it. Gonna dump the pot and sterilize the soil and see if anything can be salvaged. #sickplant #sicklysucculent #echeveria-purpusorum #advice would be welcomed

@lovestogarden That's what I thought Janice, but I unpotted it and I didn't see any. All leaves were soft. It seems to have been a beheaded cutting. It had tiny wispy roots that I might have inadvertently let die by underwatering. I saved a few leaves to propagate.

That is too bad. The leaves will hopefully root quickly for you.

I finally repotted this guy yesterday and realized I clearly know nothing about echeveria care. I noticed a couple weeks ago that it seemed to be reabsorbing its outer leaves, and it didn't occur to me that it might need WATER. It's so much smaller than when I first got it. I'm gonna give it another day to recover from being repotted and then give it a big drink.

It looks fine! The lower leaves usually die off

I helped my brother paint his dining room wall, and he took me to home depot and said I could have anything I wanted. So I got this plump and chubby #echeveriapurpusorum #echeveria-purpusorum #echeveria
