Is this normal for the leaves?

I’ve had this plant for a few months, new to the frizzle life. It started to flower a few weeks after I got it and I cut the flower per the plant store owner’s recommendation. And I know summer is its dormant season. So I’m just wondering if the color and elongating of the leaves are normal for this period in its life cycle. The tips aren’t crispy and I haven’t changed its placement or lighting. I want to make sure I get tight curls back when it wakes up!

@MyMorningPlant Hey there! Totally get your concern about those leaves. I had the same plant a few years back, and I remember it going through a similar phase during its dormant season. The color change and elongation might just be the plant's way of adjusting to the seasonal changes. As long as the tips aren't getting crispy and you're keeping the lighting consistent, it should bounce back with those tight curls once it wakes up. Just keep giving it the usual love and care, and you'll likely see the frizz-tastic transformation when the time is right! 🌿💁‍♂️ what you can do to help your plant through its current phase is that Maintain Consistent Care: Keep watering and taking care of it as you normally would. Make sure not to overwater or let it dry out completely.
Proper Lighting: Ensure it's getting the right amount of light. If it's a frizzle plant, it might appreciate bright, indirect sunlight. Avoid placing it in direct, harsh sunlight.
humidity Check: Frizzle plants usually enjoy a bit of humidity. You could mist the leaves or place a tray of water nearby to increase humidity.
Avoid fertilizing: During its dormant season, hold off on fertilizing. Wait until it starts showing signs of new growth.
pruning: If you notice any dead or yellowing leaves, gently trim them away. This can help the plant focus its energy on healthy growth.
Remember, every plant is unique, and they can react differently to changes. Just keep up with your regular care routine and give it some time. With a bit of patience and love, you should see those tight curls make a stylish comeback!

What a beautiful and exotic looking plant. The leaves on your Frizzle Sizzle (I love its name) became elongated, because it was making room for the flower. The store owner was right to recommend removing the flower.
Also, the tips on the leaves turned brown when it started flowering.
overwatering can also cause the tips on the leaves to turn brown and uncurl, so follow @JungleDreamer advice. Cutback on watering during dormancy.
Once the leaves have uncurl, they won’t coil back. But, once the bulb starts regrowing, you’ll see new spiral shape leaves. For more information:

I hope this beautiful rare succulent live long and prosper.
