I just bought this plant a couple of days ago and it looks like the bottom leaves are are shriveled up and I'm not sure why. Should I cut them off?
Last watered 3 weeks ago
I would trim them off with sterilized scissors (just pour rubbing alcohol over the scissors to sterilize) the shriveled leaves are probably due from improper water before you got it. Best of luck
This is also common with succulents. You might add a top dressing to prevent the leaves from resting on the damp soil surface. Lastly, Bonsai Jack’s gritty mix is the bomb for succulents.
