small enlongated fuzzy leaves
Echeveria runyonii 'Topsy Turvy'
I purchased this arrangement as my first succulent endeavor.
The florist told me to water the arrangement every 2 weeks. From the research i have done this is WAY to frequently.
I watered it once about a week ago and since it sits on my desk at work I put it outside in the sun yesterday once I noticed the new black spots....thinking it isn't getting enough light in the office.
Within the past couple of days I have noticed the black on the edges of the leaves (only on the elongated fuzzy leaves).
I am hoping this isn't rot or I haven't killed it already. Please advise on how to care for this and hopefully nurse it back from the black funk!
Thanks in advance for your help!
Drought Smart Plants reply: The dark spots on the Kalanchoe tomentosum are normal, so that's not rotting! However, good call on the light levels as the center of the Echeveria runyonii 'Topsy Turvy' is getting too pale. These plants all need much more light.
The other plants I've named in the caption of the pictures so you can find out more about them.
