Is this normal? I didn’t water him or do anything since last Friday @Jana85
#SplitRock
Best Answer
@FirstCanna the middle should be rock hard
What part are you concerned about? I know @Boymom-plantmom has these and so doesn't @Jana85

Are they soft? 
@sarahsalith yes In the middle but the leafs are solid…
Ouch- that's not good. What kind of soil is it in? I've killed some succs because the soil stayed too moist.
@sarahsalith it’s in almost straight rock…
Let's see what @Jana85 and @Boymom-plantmom say.
@vvvelo do you know folks with this plant?
@sarahsalith thanks… I didn’t know who else had this plant…
Can you get a clearer photo? I can’t really see what’s going on in there. I’ll try to help but pleiospilos can be tricky little guys, in my experience.
I did some more digging. @YammieOf3 has some and so does @riverzend

My brain originally went to lithops... not split rocks. My bad.
@FirstCanna looks like rot in the middle. @Jana85 yes we need a better pic of the inside
@sarahsalith it’s all good—I have three of these, too. 😁
It’s hard to get a picture
I think it’s rotten too but how did it get that way
@FirstCanna too much water. Also needs to be in about 30% soil and 70% granite or grit. The rock may be too big. Humidity can also cause root rot
@Boymom-plantmom the roots actually looked perfect when I roll it out of the pot before I started panicking
Oh, one thing I have learned is when you water succs like this, don't water the plant -- water around the plant.
@sarahsalith one thing I’ve learned is split rocks are not my thing!🤣🤣🤣
@Boymom-plantmom so if I just leave it alone do you rhink with the roots being healthy the baby could live?
@FirstCanna not likely but worth a try. Is the baby mushy too? Can you get the baby and roots completely off the rot?
@Boymom-plantmom I’m not sure about the roots… the baby isn’t mushy though
@Boymom-plantmom going to try it and see what happens
@Boymom-plantmom nope wouldn’t recommend trying this at home🥹😅
