Euphorbia decaryi

This one seemed to sorely in need of repotting, so I bit the bullet and put it into this shallow pan with gritty mix. I did this on 9/27. This plant had a lot more green growth a month ago, so I'm wondering if I am killing it or it is just preparing to enter its dormant state. Any ideas and advice would be appreciated.

In addition to the shock of repotting, this species has a tendency to turn "purple" from the sun. It grows as a ground cover under other shrubs. Once they turn dark, they stay that way and new growth will be green unless exposed again.

RE: Euphorbia decaryi

Great to know about the dark leaves. That makes me feel a bit better as this has been in direct sun for several hours day. I'm going to move it so that it will be shaded by some of the larger plants in the afternoon. Thanks so much for your help.
