Hi all! New to succulent gardening and loving it. I replanted a few chicks about a week or 2 ago in containers with no drainage. I know thats a no no but I haven't watered them to much at all. But my leaves are going flat on the 2 biggest ones.I wanted some for inside and found some small glass candle holders they look good in. I also replanted some in outdoor planters the same day, they have drainage and are doing great. I wonder if its where they're inside and not getting much warmth and sun or the no drainage that's making the leaves flat. I included pics of the problem ones, the good ones done the same day & the planter they originally came from. Thanks.

Sempervivums are very hardy and IMO they are not suitable for growing indoors. No drainage is a huge mistake. How much light are they getting?

Not much at all. We sat them outside today to see if that'll help them. I didn't really think about the light issue when I decided to bring them in. They did great at first but I guess it's starting to get to them. If they don't improve soon I'm going to repot them for outside.

They do look very unhappy. They just don't do well indoors and drainage is very important to them. I'd just find another small succulent to use indoors and let the sempervivums be outside where they're happy.

If you'd like to learn more about them, please feel free to come visit the Semp forum.
