Hi my 15 year old daughter has recently taken an interest in growing succulents. I have never grown succulents but have grown many other types of plants. All of her succulents are doing well except this one. I am not sure if its a water issue or a lighting issue. After hours of searching I cannot figure out what type succulent this is to be able to find care information.

I have even tried the Picture this app and it gives me different names everytime I take a picture.

She purchased this succulent from home depot about 2 months ago. We reported the plant using succulent soil (also from home depot) and a pot that has drain holes.

She waters it just a little bit about once every week or 2. The soil stay mostly dry, but is slightly moist after watering. She also add succulent food when she waters (again purchased at home depot).

The succulents are kept indoor in her bedroom so the temperature is steadily around 70 degrees. We live in Texas although I am not sure that matter since the plants are indoors.

I dont think any of them have grown in size, but its only been a couple of months.

Any advice you could give would be very much appreciated.

Thanks so much!

Provide stronger light. The plant should "see" the sun for hours a day year round, with no blinds or curtain in the way.

Water well (to completion, until water comes out the holes at the bottom) then wait for the soil to go dry or mostly dry at depth (not just at the surface) before watering again.

Skip the plant food. That is not helping in a low light situation, with incomplete watering and new soil, and it may actually be hurting the plant.

Welcome!

Thank you so much! We will definitely try that. Do you happen to know what type of succulent this is?

No, I do not, but it looks like it's stretched, so maybe you'd have better luck identifying it after it's been growing in strong light for a while.
