I have a chic and hen, and the other is a echeveria perle von nurnberg, now... i also had a 4oz senecio kleiniiformis. This poor succulent just... Withered and died... I was very careful about watering.. So I'm worried about what I'm doing wrong and if I could save the plant if I replant it maybe...

I put all three in cacti soil. I had a square wicker basket, I lined with plastic.. Put gravel on the bottom, and then the Cacti soil and succulents. And I also put on top sand- so it looked like a zen garden.

In their early days. I had them outside- not directly in sunlight. But outside all day, and now that it's colder outside I've brought them inside.. But still in a room full of sunlight. My Von nurnberg just... Looks wilty, it doesn't look healthy at all.. It looks kind of like a Christmas tree shape? And my chick has these brown marks all over it?...Uhhhgggg. Please help!!

Hi Joe, Welcome! to NGA

Your plants are suffering from too much water and not enough light. Get them into a container with a drainage hole. You can use the wicker basket but provide drainage and get rid of the layer of gravel. Then go find a sunnier spot for your plants to live in.

Hi & welcome!

The brown spots look like they could be sunburn. There's a cactus/succulent forum here if you'd like to move your discussion over there. If so, click "suggest a Change" at the bottom of the discussion.

I agree with Daisy... Get them repotted
ASAP. check roots for root rot. Cut any damaged roots off.lay em out on newspaper several days or week.so damaged roots ca scab over. The dead one probably died from root rot. Lets hope the others arnt to far gone. You can cut babies off.let them scab over and start new ones. Good luck ! Thumbs up

Which one are you calling your Senecio?

I can't visualize sunburn. Those plants are sun deprived stretched.
