I recently got this assorted succulent pot from Home Depot. It didn't come with a tag of what exactly was in the pot. Ive been watering it when the soil is completely dry (about once every 1-2 weeks) and keeping it in a window with lots of sunlight. It's been doing good but recently the color on some of the succulents is looking yellow and limp. Im not sure what type of succulent any of them are and would love to know how to care for them best.

Hi Claire123, Welcome!

If you can upload photo(s) of your succulent pot, I'm sure some of our knowledgeable cacti/succulent growers will be able to identify them for you.

Does the container have drainage holes in the bottom? With some plants, yellowing leaves is usually a sign of over-watering but yellowing leaves can also be due to the soil at root level remaining too dry. Seeing photos of the plants and knowing the type of potting media being used may help determine what the issue is. Succulents need a porous, well draining soil and if the plants are growing in a dense medium it will cause too much water retention at root level and possible rot.

Hi, sorry about that I thought I had uploaded a picture. Hopefully this works now! The pot does have one drainage hole.

Oh, that's so pretty! The leaf coloration may be normal; many succulents do turn reddish shades in high light situations and sometimes temperature can cause variation in leaf color.

I recognize one of the plants as Jade Plant (Crassula ovata)



One in the pot may be Crassula nudicaulis var. platyphylla 'Burgundy' whose leaves also turn yellowish-orange-red when grown in high light.



The tiny leaves on the plant in the back reminds me somewhat of



The plant front right may be a type of Aloe but I'm not sure.

I forgot to say, if you click the blue links it will take you to our database entry for each particular plant, where you can find more photos and information.
