When troubleshooting a sad-looking houseplant, start by checking for signs of distress in its leaves, such as yellowing, browning, or drooping, which can indicate overwatering or nutrient deficiencies.

Inspect the soil moisture; too dry or too wet soil can cause problems.

Ensure the plant is getting the right amount of light, as too much or too little can stress it.

Finally, consider environmental factors like temperature and humidity, and adjust care routines accordingly to revive your plant.

😖 Common Issues

Overwatering is a likely cause of issues with Two-Row Stonecrop. These plants are very sensitive to wet soil so if you notice your plant becoming squishy or translucent, overwatering is the likely culprit.

Cut your plant just past where the rot ends and allow it to callus over for a few days before replanting it in fresh, dry soil. Download Greg to make sure your plant never gets overwatered again!

He grows outside, but after seeing all these pics of potted plants growing inside, I may bring in a little piece this spring. He is one of my first outside plants. He never fails to return no matter how much snow we get. ❤️🍃❄️

No matter what I do this thing won’t die. Roots hold onto ALOT of water makes it super prone to fungus gnats. It will keep growing no matter what you do to it. It has continually given me fungus gnats.
