Why is my split rock shriveling up? :(
Because the old plant has done it's work to produce the new plant and now dies...
As the plant grows, it absorbs the nutrients in the older leaves, causing them to shrivel. This is completely normal.
Ok, great news! Thanks Nancy and bikerdoc!
If it doesn't do that, then you need to worry about rot. two sts is the most one should have at any time and often it is just one.
I just rescued a little Split Rock from Lowe's for $1.00.
What does "sts" mean in the above post?
Oh , I am sorry, I meant two sets of leaves is the most one should have on the plant. My fat fingers.
Do these things stay about the same size always? Or is each set of leaves larger than the last, making for a larger and larger plant?
They stay about the same, sorry they don't turn into Split Boulders!
Some clones of P. bolusii have flowers that smell strongly of coconut, kind of Plumeria-like, unique among succulents. This one looks like it might be P. nelii though.
