This is my Sempervivum. I've had him for a week and he looks NOTHING like when I first got him.
How do I save him? Is it safe to plant him with others?

|The most likely cause of problems for succulents is excess water. It causes the roots to rot. Start by letting it dry out. Remove any soggy leaves. Perhaps it will recover.

|Any chance of heat damage/stress or cold damage?
I find it hard to imagine a general problem like this happening, ie. Root loss, and causing plant failure in a week or so. Sounds like something briefer and more catastrophic.

|Sempervivum are very cold hardy - Zone 4 or so. Overwatering this time of year would certainly rot the roots quickly.
Plantpal, Saying you are in the USA narrows it down to Zone 1 to 24. If this is going into your yard, would you mind narrowing down your location? If you are trying to keep this as a house plant, put it in a cool sunny window and stop watering.
