W WillowMarie can this sad succulent be saved? I found it hidden on a shelf in the kitchen at work. Lots of things people don't want end up in the kitchen I gave it a good watering and moved it to the front of the shelf so it can get light. It definitely needs to be repotted.

Bummer about your plants. I've definitely read with my lithops to keep away from windows because they can for sure can get too cold in the winter, esp a risk of freezing with being so much water. Which ones did you lose??Never mind, it will soon be spring and I can treat myself to a few more.
Just read an article about illegal collection of succulents from the wild on MSN. Apparently lithops are taken, simply because they are slow growing. You can read the article here:
I was surprised that Home Depot had a decent variety of succulents that day. Usually the indoor plant section is blah even in the summer. It was hard to resist buying more succulents.The sun stressed colors on these
It's still alive The leaves are still a bit soft but they're not wrinkly anymore. I'm going to hold off on watering it some more. A plant board suggested to cut off about 2 inches from the top (basically all the smaller newer leave) to help the plant branch out and be less leggy. Thoughts?How's it doing? Good move on moving it to get light. It is stretching a lot, which means it needs way more sun.
I was thinking the same thing! Sometimes it's about aesthetic and what look you like, whether to cut or leave it on old growth. Most people like the tight only growth. When my plants grew leggy last year due to inadequate indoor lighting during the winter, some of mine were cut to restart the plant when there was adequate lighting.A plant board suggested to cut off about 2 inches from the top (basically all the smaller newer leave) to help the plant branch out and be less leggy.

What are you thinking of getting? I've been wondering about a snake plant.Same here I think my desk personalization money this year will go towards more plants
A couple of crassula. Actually I still have the parent plant and a lot of the other babies I managed to grow from leaves, so it's not a total disaster. I'm looking forward to some warmer weather thoughWhich ones did you lose??
