Stressing for color & not watering- where did the Pink go?
This is a Ghost or Ghosty Peach variety. She arrived Pink (1st pic) She turned green in my window so I put her directly under the grow light and she began getting her color back. (Pics 2&3).
So eventually I had to water her, right? And the next day, the very next day, she turned green! I can’t believe it happened that fast!
Her leaves had gotten flat and soft after 1 1/2 months of not watering. I didn’t want to take the chance of losing her. Should I have waited longer?
(She was sold as a Graptopetalum Paraguayense Peach. But she may be a Ghosty?)

You did the right thing. I heard the color is because they are sun burned. So plenty of light should do the trick.
Her kittens though 🥺💕 she's still beautiful no matter what color she is!
I agree. She so much plumper now 🤗
So very pretty! U did great and I am sure she will get her color back but even green she is so pretty!
Thank you!You’re right. She’s pinking up again. Whew! 😅
Sunlight has a lot to do with these changes. More sun, more lavender/pink, less sun more grey blue/green
