Watching a beloved succulent's soft green and mauve leaves turn brown can be a real heartbreaker. Still, fixing the problem takes less effort than you'd think.
Succulents are prone to water damage because they've adapted to dry climates with no little water.
A poor potting mix can hold little or too much water. Give your succulent plants the right blend on a pot with drainage holes
A common misconception is that succulent plants don't need water at all. If the leaves start dropping, submerge your succulent in water.
Fungal diseases like brown spots and black spots can cause patches of moldy-looking tissue. Apply a copper-based fungicide or cooled cinnamon tea.
The signs of sunburn are discolored patches on the leaves. Move them into a shadier area and trim away leaves with sun damage.
Succulent leaves will turn brown and start to curl inwards. Move your succulent plants to a brighter location with enough sunlight.
Chilling or long exposure to hot conditions can cause succulent plants to enter dormancy. Water them with lukewarm water.
Root aphids, mealybugs, and scale beetles cause brown succulent leaves. Apply them immediately with neem oil solution!
Excess nutrients can build up on succulent leaves. Flush the potting soil with water and don't fertilize for the rest of the growing season.
As a general rule of thumb, use well-draining soil and water less often to prevent root rot. Place them in a spot with bright, indirect light.
