i check my succulents each tuesday
as it was cold and rainy last week
i skipped that tuesday,But
to my surprise,and astonishment
when i looked on them this sunday
they all have chicken pox like craters
ALL OF THEM!!!!!!!
what do you think this is ????
is it reversible???
Merry Xmass,and happy new 2013
Hi Amjad, that does look rather like they didn't like the cool temperatures and the rain. This type of damage is fairly common, and the only solution is to keep them under cover when it rains; they seem to be okay with the coolness as long as they stay dry.
The damage is done, and is not reversible on the leaves that are showing it - sorry! However, don't discard the leaves yet - they will still root, as long as you don't water them; the damage will be compartmentalized and hopefully won't spread before the leaf roots.
Best of luck, and all the best in 2013!
