Succulent Problems & ID please

Posted by bryannaarmstrong Texas (My Page) on

I do not know what is going on with my succulent. It's all droopy and I have watered it plenty, I usually soak it about once a week. If soil is still damp I'll do every other week. It's directly by a window.

Also, whats the name of this succulent?

RE: Succulent Problems & ID please

Oh poor, sad thing. It looks like it could be Graptopetalum paraguayense, but just as easily could be an intergeneric (like an xGrapotveria). I'd say it's probably getting too much water & not enough sun (etiolated). Is that green stick behind another succulent (like a Euphorbia)? Any way you could put this outside, where it might get more warmth & sunshine? I'd change watering to every 2 weeks (or whenever it gets bone dry)...maybe change the soil to something than drain better/more quickly (less peat-type soil).
