Starting on May 19, the leaves on the top of my Sempervivum started turning gray. I just received this as a gift and I waited a couple of days before watering. It receives plenty of shaded sun, and a couple of hours of full sun. Is this a sign that I need to replant? I only took it outside in the past couple of days, 2 days after watering. Before taking it outside it was inside my room, receiving about 4 hours of window sunlight. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

You have an over watering and lack of sun issue. Watch your water because its easy to over water a succulent. They need to dry out completely before watering. I think it may be better in the window with 4 hours of light instead of a couple of hrs in the outdoor sun. Sempervivum prefer full sun and a well-draining medium. If you keep it in the window turn it every few days to get sun on the whole plant.

Succulents perform best when their soil dries between waterings. If they remain in wet or waterlogged soils, succulents suffer from edema, which causes brown, corky spots on the leaves. Sometimes the spots form on the undersides of leaves, making it more difficult to notice this disorder.
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌
