Hello~ I am new to gardening and I got myself two pots of succulents as my starter. They are both echeveria I think. I really love to get into succulents but I have just found out that the tips of the leaves for one of my plant have gone black like it's been burn off or something. I am wondering why. Please help me~ thanks~

Welcome to NGA! Welcome!

Can you update your info so we know where these plants are located?

Are they growing outside or inside? Can you post a photo?

Thank You!

Thank you~ Lovely to be here~
I have left them outside where they will get morning sun since I first got them. At least that's what I think as I will go to work after that and I cannot get home until after 8 hours. I will find one day when I have an offday and observe the sun, haha. I live around the equator and recently the sun is scorching hot as there's equinox effect happening. When I get home, I bring and put them at my room window where there is no sunlight until the next day.

Some Echeverias have tips that are colored differently than the rest of the leaf. I have 2 Lipstick and they have red tips - given enough sun. Gene

Do you notice some of the tips of the leaves are pointy and some are black?

It does look like there is some damage to some of the tips. But it's not sunburn. It looks more like its getting bumped and damaged some how.

Thanks for the reply. If there's sunburn, the leaves will change colour as well right? These look normal still and they don't seem to be underwatered too. I read quite a few on succulent care already but I am just a beginner and don't understand about any arising problems. I will get more soon :D some cactus I think.
