tarev said:Hello Sabi, no, the plant is not dying..it is just manifesting some level of stress. Looking at your set-up is not bad, so I would then consider the outdoor temperatures from night to daytime. Maybe it has turned colder than usual in the past few days, so the plant is showing stress. But give it time to adjust, try to top dress your plant with some pumice or chicken grit. It will keep the base drier and at the same time protect the roots later from too much of our dry heat.
Pinkish leaves may also indicate the media is staying too wet than usual. So got to allow good dry out time. It is okay if the outer leaves slowly dry off later, new growth always comes from the center.
tarev said:You are growing it outdoors, so its okay to add the top dressing. Lots of airflow around. Typically if I have distrubed the roots, I would not water right away, got to give chance for the roots to recover too.
Yes, our weather has been really chilly huh? And this weekend will be a heat wave ugh! Crazy weather!
Anyways, the position of your plant is okay, just give it time to adjust. Some succulents also manifest that closing up of its rosettes, as it gets too heated, to conserve transpiration, then open up a bit at night time to do its gas exchange.
So do not be tempted to overwater.
