    Hi everyone! This my new succulent. I ordered him with some other succulents and everyone else is looking pretty okay except for this guy.
    In the last week he has gone from a big, full sempervivum... to this :(
    I was planning on planting all my new succulents together, meaning him, one jade, and three echeverias.
    Does anyone know what happened here? I can't believe this happened in a week.
    Except for the fact that they're dropping, the leaves look fine. I also can't access the stem because his leaves are tightly packed down there.
    Please help!!!

    I don't know much about the non-cactus succulents, but how can the leaves be "tightly packed" when most of them seem to have fallen off? A side-view photo might make it easier to understand.
    If you plan to move it to a a bigger pot together with other plants, why not unpot it now, remove some of the compost and at least inspect the lower part of the stem and the roots?
    Odd-looking Sempervivum. Do you know what species is it?
