Hi!
I bought a little set of 6 tiny cacti & succulents. 1" pots. I have had some trouble with one where all the leaves basically shrivveled up & died. I now have the stem & maybe a tiny leaf. Thinking it may be too dry I gave it a good soak last week. and did the same for my other succulents. (its been quite hot in MN)
now the fuzzy succulent seen below is starting to keel over at the top! not shrivelling yet. it did lose one leaf a few weeks ago. i have not repotted these guys yet though i do have some cacti & succ. mix.

can you post a pic of just the plant, not the pot?

Here's what you've got. There are a great many varieties of cultivars, so yours may not look exactly the same, but basically so.

Hope this helps!

PS. my apologies for the picture. unfortunately, my camera doesn't have a good macro function so its hard to get very close.. it's quite a tiny little guy.
I can try to get closer if it would help.

the only leaf on the left marks where it starts to keel over. (above that leaf)

many thanks.
