As a general rule, common indications that a succulent is dying include:
- Brown, mushy leaves mean the roots are rotting.
- Pale, yellow leaves indicate that rot or infection has spread.
- Wrinkly, dehydrated leaves mean the roots are drying up.
- Brown roots indicated rot or infection.
In respect to this, how do you revive a dying succulent?
Dig the succulent out of the soil and remove excess soil stuck to the roots, cut off any brown/black roots as these are rotten already. Leave the plant on a mesh or any kind of strainer till the roots have air dried from anywhere two to three days. When the roots are dry completely, plant them back in the pot.
In this regard, do succulents need direct sunlight?
Succulents love direct sun, but if yours is sitting in the same exact spot day after day, it’s likely that only one side is getting enough light. … Succulents will lean towards the sun, so rotating them will help them stand up straight. (Leaning may also be a sign that they need to be in a sunnier spot.)
