Hi I bought this little guy from a small plant store and it looked fragile to begin with. Thinking I could save it I brought him anyways and put it in a south facing window but it started to get a little sunburn so I changed it to a east facing window instead. I don’t know is name and I would like to but lately all it’s leaves have been shriveling up and falling off. Since I know is a succulent I barely give it water so I thought it was because of under watering so I gave it a good soack three days ago but when I checked on it today the leave had fallen off and another one was starting to shrivel up. I took it out of its pot to see if it was rot and it has so many roots but the stem is starting to look a little bit brown. Should I be concerned is it rotting ?
In reference to the leaves dropping, are they squishy with a almost yellow transparent look to them? Is the stem feeling soft like a overripe avocado? If so, the plant is suffering from overwatering.
If the leaves are crispy or hard when dropping on all areas of the plant, the plant is probably seeking a bit more water. Some succulents get a bit more thirsty than other species.
If the leaves are getting crispy and drying only on the very bottom area of the plant, then there is nothing to stress over as the plant is preforming it’s natural cycle for renewing and producing more leaf growth. Gently remove the expended leaves and continue to watch it grow.
Watch the watering and make sure the soil is fast draining. If needed, amend the soil with peat moss, perlite, vermiculite, or pumice. Possibly put it back in the south facing window with a sheer curtain to diffuse the light as you said sunburn is a concern.
