I had 5 large and 4 small when we moved to RI so far I lost 4 of my large one's and This one Hermini is doing OK she bloomed a couple of weeks ago But, not happy. The 3 smaller ones are NOT happy at all . They keep getting soft then hard. I really NEED to find them a home were they can be loved and happy. They are not happy in our new house.

Shannon, in looking at your photos it appears that one of the reasons your babies are not happy, is that the pots that they are in are too large. DRs are succulents and don't need a lot of water. They also need well draining soil. A pot too large can create a soggy environment for the roots and cause rot to set in. Have you looked at the roots lately? Hopefully, Melissa or JT will respond and help you out soon.

I agree with Deebie. I agree They do like a more southern, warmer place. Northerners sure can tolerate chilly homes!

If you still need a home for your plants, I would love to have one or two of them for postage. My windows at work are perfect for it.
