Why are my chick and hens leaves drooping? Am I doing anything wrong?? #PlantAddict #PlantLove
I’ve only had her for a few months and she was doing good until the last few weeks! I did repot her into a pot with drainage as she was in a mug with no drainage….could it be overwatering or just being in wet soil a lot? I haven’t watered her since I put her in dry soil last week so hopefully the other soil will dry out, when I repotted her I made sure to check for root rot and didn’t see any!

This looks like over watering to me. I'm not sure what type of soil you put her in but it should be very well draining soil that won't hold in too much moisture as these do like to dry out.
@Sassylimey your the expert on these babies. Any suggestions?
@ThePlantyk in my opinion it is due to overwatering. That’s what killed mine I used to have. They are dry tolerant.
I agree with @KikiGoldblatt and @tmbryant37 these plants don't like to be wet, they should dry out between waterings and only water about every 10 days, make sure the soil is really dry before watering again.
@Sassylimey ok will do thank you alot
