Welcome! Emilios.

I don't know what is happening to your plants. Sad

You may want to re-post on the Ask a Question forum.

Again, Welcome! Welcome! Welcome!

Hello Emilios, can you describe as well how you are growing this plant.
1) Is it in a container or inground
2) If in a container, is it indoors or outdoors
3) frequency of watering
4) how long have you had this plant
5) Has this been repotted recently
6) Can you provide a full photo of the plant

Hello Tarev,the plants grow outdoors,inground.I water them when the soil gets completly dry.I live in Cyprus and we have hot summers so now i water them about 5-7 days and 2-3 liters of water.I have planted them an year ago and spots appeared around March this year.I would like to ask you if humidity early in the morning and sun after that could burn the plant and cause this black spots.Yes i can attach some full plant photos.If you need more or better photos please let me know.
Thank you for your reply!!! Thank You!

Hello Emilios, thanks for the photos and your location update.

I am thinking the plant is just adjusting to the increased light and sun as summer season comes in full force. Just water as you do. The plant is quite drought tolerant and ably handles full sun. I see new leaves growing at the center and see pups forming on some, so the mommy plant is also sharing its resources to the new growth.

I ran across a short piece in a succulent book that shows that as Bacterial leaf spot and recommends cinnamon spray or a commercial product.

To me it seems okay. The plant is outdoors so it receives everything. But they are such resilient plants and you have ideal growing conditions for it.
