Hello everyone,I am new at growing succulents,i have grown succulent type plants but there is a big difference in those and these plants.I have some Hoya's that are a succulent type plant with thick leaves and needing to dry out before watering not kept moist.I do grow jade plants,desert rose etc... None of them are anything like these plants and i failed very quickly and need help badly.These are plants that belonged to a friend that has passed away,her husband gave them to me after he lost a few.
I'm just going to download some picture's and let everyone see what has happened!! If i could get some advice or your opinion on what to do.I'm not sure if i can cut the stems above the bad place & then root it there after letting it callous & how long to let it callous.Any informative or good web sites or links will be greatly appreciated.

The pot in the last picture is what i potted them in.I thought a shallow pot holds less soil (i used citrus,cactus & succulent soil) which would lower the chance of root rot.

All advice & help i can get on what to do with these plant is greatly appreciated and the sooner the better!! I don't know how long these plants have?

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

I bet the pebbles got too hot and burned the stems.... Sad
The pieces should root fairly easily though.
And please - VERY dry!!
