No, succulents need a little dry time between waterings. That will be a pile of rot in no time at all.

I would not think it will survive in water. Being a succulent it requires very little moisture.

Can you tell us why you have it in water please?

And Welcome! by the way... I tip my hat to you.
Be content moving inch by inch because, by days end, the inches, will add up to feet and yards.

Thanks for the welcome Smiling I just think it looks cool in water and was hoping it will survive. I might see how it goes within the next few days otherwise I will pot it in soil

Daniel, there are plenty of other plants that will grow in water. Succulents will not grow at all. They will just rot and die.

If you like the looks of it displayed like that, may I suggest you place it in a dry clear glass. You will be amazed at how long your plant can live with out soil or moisture. And it would still look cool... Thumbs up
