My black rose is acting weird and brand new

#TreeAeonium the picture in the profile below was about 2 weeks ago when I first bought him. The top picture is it now. It was very droopy but is now almost curling up and much more spread out. It has shed a few leaves over the last week as well. Any idea what might be causing it? It’s in direct sunlight but not very close to the window/ maybe 2-3 feet away.
3ft to light, indirect
7” pot with drainage
Last watered 6 days ago
Here’s another angle for reference
Wow! It looks SO healthy now! The plant and the profile picture doesn't look as happy. The leaves will spread out and upward towards the light. Let me grab some pictures to show you. οΏΌ
Here is another one of mine that is in a pot to buy itself. Front picture and back picture. (:οΏΌ
(Forgot the back. πŸ˜†)
You can see in the very first picture where I cut the stem. It was getting very tall so I chopped the stem off and planted it in the pot next to the other plant. Now I have SEVEN branches off of one stem AND another plant. οΏΌ(:
Thank you Sarah!!! Very helpful
Oooo this is so pretty I want one of these now
Dang it, @Luckyclovertrip - you're in Canada. πŸ™ƒ My first thought was "I'll send you a few cuttings!" but I think Canada would frown upon live plants from a random gal in the southern US. πŸ˜†
@sarahsalith bahah that’s too sweetπŸ₯Ή If I ever come up south maybe I’ll smuggle some back 🀞🫒
@Luckyclovertrip DO IT! πŸ˜†πŸ˜† You could wear it home in your hair!
@sarahsalith amazing idea!! Coincidentally my best friend is actually working in Tennessee right now…maybe I’ll make her smuggle it backπŸ€£πŸ€£β€¦totally kidding..unless
@Luckyclovertrip ... we could make it happen!! Worst case is someone in customs says: What's that thing in your hair?!
@sarahsalith bahahah I’m laughing so hard rn
