Dried leaves at base of rosette
I have a Echeveria glauca blue that may be my first overwatering fatality. It had 6 pups. I had removed and rooted/potted 4 of the pups a while ago.
Mom and the other two started looking yellow and when I investigated realized that I had overwatered them and they were turning yellow. In clearing the debris that had accumulated on the top of the pot I noticed that the lower leaves of all three rosettes were dried up but still attached to the stem. I removed them to allow more air circulation. Then I thought that maybe that was the wrong thing to do, but it's done.
Today, one of the pups looked sicker yet. Just a few little leaves in the center looked healthy. I cut it off, set it where all the cuttings are supposed to be rooting or dying as the case may be.
So, should those dried leaves at the base of the rosettes of succulents be removed? It sort of tidies them up.
