I've had my echeveria for about 3 months now and it even has a beautiful bloom stalk. But I've noticed lately that the leaves have been drooping a little. Is the down-turned/drooping leaves just how my type of echeveria is? (It would be helpful if someone could help me identify what type of echeveria this is, the name was not given when I bought it) Or is it a water problem, soil problem, or sunlight problem?

I'm guessing the plant is not getting enough light. Maybe without the curtain in the way it would be more happy. You really want hours of daily sun for these plants to do well indoors, which usually means right by your sunniest unobstructed window.

I agree with Baja, your plant is trying to seek more light. If light is sustained, that stalk with be a bit thicker, less etiolated. Is it possible to more the plant outdoors in part sun?
