luis_pr said:Could be transplant shock since the new place will not provide the exact same conditions as the previous one. How is the environment in its new location? Is it getting different temperatures, is it in a drafty area; did you overfertilize it; maybe it is getting less sunlight than before? I assume you looked for pests already? Did the problem start after the move?
Calif_Sue said: lack of sunlight as it's extremely etiolated so it's not "getting plenty" of sunlight.
BigBill said:Jana, you may think that it is enough light but the leaves dropping off say different. Try moving it to a real sunny spot for a few months a see what happens.
MsDoe said: Yikes, poor thing, that's not how they're supposed to grow! It's extremely stretched out, trying to find more light. Is there any chance you could put a grow light on it?
If it were mine I would cut off the top and re-start it in a much smaller pot, in fast draining gritty soil. And find a way to put a grow light over it!
Some succulents will sprout a new plant from a fallen leaf, I'd also give that a try, see what happens.
MsDoe said: Let the cut top dry out for a few days, then plant it in a small pot with gritty cactus soil. The stretched out old stem might send out new growth, might not, but the top should grow for you. It will really benefit from a lot more light.
Do you have other houseplants? Some varieties do fine with lower light levels, but not succulents.
CPPgardener said:I think part of the problem may also be that it looks like a trailing type sedum that is being forced to grow up when it wants to grow sideways. They also tend to have leaves that are very, very easily broken off the stem. Let it grow sideways and see what happens.
