Opalina keeps dropping leaves
I got this graptoveria Opalina ~2 weeks ago and it’s been dropping a leaf about every week. The leaf will turn orangey/red/yellow and becomes very thin (unlike all the other fat leaves). You can see it happening again to the yellow colored leaf shown in the picture (left side). I did water it ~1 week ago. Any ideas what’s going on or how to stop it?
4ft to light, direct
4” pot with drainage
Last watered 1 month ago
I wonder if it needs to be moved closer to direct light. The plant card says that its four feet away.
@pricklypups I agree with @sarahsalith on this. It might need more light.
@KikiGoldblatt oops sorry, I haven’t updated my plant card! I’ve actually been slowly moving it closer to my grow light so it’s a few inches away from that but not directly under it yet.
@pricklypups i would stick it right be underneath that grow light. No need to attempt to acclimate it to that kind of light. (:
@sarahsalith thank you!
Update on the leaf! It’s definitely going to fall off like the others. I’ve placed my opalina under my grow light and I’m hoping leaves will stop dropping 🥺
