    Hey! I am not sure what flower is it, but it seems very sad lately - almost a month ago it was fine - big strong leaves, big "blossom" and etc. But now it's the leaves are going weaker, limper, they are falling, and I can't see anything visible that could be wrong with the plant - no germs, mold, and etc. I am careful not to over water it. Could it be that the summer is coming? Also, maybe it lacks sun (the few months were especially bleak)?

    I am not familiar with that one. Does it have a cane like/woody stem ? It reminds me of one I have here that stores water in the leaves. The leaves dry on mine as the plant gets taller in winter and has a number of smaller plants from the stem . I know yours is a different one but could be similar. I would water it first,,then start putting it outside if its warm enough for a short time each day. Extend the time as the weather allows and see if it improves. Many times the winter and being indoors can be hard on a plant. Greenhouse plants are usually the ones that do not tolerate the indoors well. Homes do not provide the same conditions for them.

    It looks some what like an Echeveria. Do a google search for that plant, you should find all sorts of photos and good info on growing it.

    Hi, Mart. Thank you for tips. It seems that I done everything as usual and the plant just started to grow weaker and weaker. And I wonder why, since nothing changed. Yes, it has a long woody brown stem. It's too cold to bring it outside (-1C outside). I will try watering, but I have experience that if plant is overwatered, it drops leaves.

    Toni, I don't know much about plants, but I have doubts if this one is Echeveria. Mine has stem, and
    Echeverias seems like very "down to earth" plants. Also, the leaves aren't that "meaty". I have one like on the right 6inLAMBS-BURRO_TAIL-56a4e9033df78cf772854665.jpg so I know it might come in all shapes and sizes. Thank you for advice, I will google it.

    Just googled "Echeveria with stem" and voila, my plant! Thank you.

    I think it's an Aeonium. The serrations on the edges of the leaves don't fit with Echeveria.

    A couple pics to compare:

    Hello, Tiffany. It's exactly Aeonium! Thank you so much!
