I have "inherited" some plants from a friend who passed away,when her husband realized he didn't know how to tend to them & they were dying off.I have potted them,but now have some questions about the way i potted them.Just want to ask the questions i found myself asking when i was potting them and ended up kind of guessing.

First i have had them in pots for 2 days.I noticed today a few have fell over.Can i cut them at the soft spots and reroot them,if so how just stick them in some damp only damp well draining soil??
I also read some where not to water succulents for a week after potting.These are plants that weren't healthy or well cared for in the beginning.So not watering probably caused these plants to collapse.I am going to water the rest just a little,they are in the middle of a central Georgia summer,high 90's-100 degree's.
Here are picture's of the ones I'm trying to save.

A green thumb comes only as a result of the mistakes you make while learning to see things from the plants point of view!!
