    9A9D0BF2-2303-42E9-B636-3E18A3F371ED.jpeg Recently, my graptosedum has been repotted and lost quite a few of its roots while doing so. Ever since then, it has been dropping a lot of leaves lately (they shrivel up like in the picture) and its been happening faster than normal. Usually, 1 leaf would wither every 3 weeks or so, but now, 2 leaves wither within a single week. I’ve increased its watering schedule as I am afraid its being underwatered, and I’m wondering perhaps does it have insufficient roots to take up water?

    Furthermore, its leaves has been drooping a little (growing straight outwards horizontally instead of growing upwards) and is this a sign of over/under watering or not enough light? Or something else entirely?

    How often are you watering it ? When it drops a leaf just stick the end into damp soil and have another plant !

    I’m watering every 6-7 days. When the leaves drop they are often completely withered though? Does that still allow propagation?
