i am SCARED for my succulents okay. they say you have to keep them out of the direct sunlight for a week after repotting and not water them after that one watering you did while repotting and I'm terrified. you know what happened to the succulent leaves that were supposed to give roots after being left to dry for a week? they DRIED, @star-rice. they're DEAD. they won't produce life anymore. also every tutorial just says "put them at a south facing window" AS IF I HAVE FOUR WINDOWS IN MY HOUSE EACH ONE FACING EACH DIRECTION. both of my windows are facing...whatever they're facing, north-west? too poor too mentally ill for plants, I guess. but they're so pretty it hurts

@star-rice i am assuming the middle ones are dead. i splashed them with water because nothing works anyway

those directions are uh very oddly specific and i don't think they're that good tbh

"south-facing window" sounds very specific, but obviously not everyone has a south-facing window. that usually means the window with the most light (south-facing windows tend to get the most amount of sunlight light for people living in the northern hemisphere). if a north-facing one is all you have, that's fine too.

the succulent leaves you're showing there look like aeonium kiwi (i think, based off the general shape and the red tinges around the leaves). they can hold some water in their leaves, but they're not like traditional desert succulents because they're from a more subtropical climate. their soil needs to be a bit moist instead of completely dry.

as for propagating leaves of succulents, it's a mixed bag depending on the species. the leaves you're showing off here are 90% goners (especially the yellow ones). i've actually never had any success propagating the leaves of aeoniums. i don't think it's possible for the leaves to grow roots for this particular genus - it usually has to have a bit of stem for it to grow roots.

plants can be wack and kind of picky, and it's really hard to get "good" care instructions unless you know the specific genus (not easy for people who aren't familiar with plants who get unlabelled plants at the store), and even then they can just Perish out of nowhere. please don't blame yourself! even i've had plenty of plants die on me after i did my best to take care of them and i would consider myself "good" at taking care of plants.

EDIT: actually they might be echeveria agavoides, not aeonium kiwi (aeoniums have serrated leaves and i don't think your succulents have those). for echeverias, i just take the entire leaf and shove it in some dry soil and water it every once in a while. i don't bother leaving it to dry for a week or whatever. sometimes the leaves grow roots after a while, but they also might just die. it's like a 80% death rate for me when it comes to leaves. i've had better chances (almost 100% survival rate) if propagating them by cutting off one of the heads instead.

ask me about how i accidentally lost 2.5 million treasure in flight rising

zylphide

@UnidentifiedBlog commented:
how

tldr:
i was on the roundsey raffle and i meant to type 10 tickets... except i was talking with someone and typed in 10000 because my brain thought we were on crossroads or AH where you type in the number

i click ok and i see the number 5000 (because roundsey is capped at buying 5000 tickets at a time i guess) and think im spending 5000 treasure

ok cool i click confirm and only after i click do i see the part with "this will cost (coin)2500000" and by then it's too late

i contacted support but roundsey ends in like 9 hours and support is slow as shit so rip

please send hopes and prayers that i will win the grand prize so i can recoup my costs kjdfksadjf (i think i have around a 2.4% chance of winning)

anyone wanna do cringetober with me

(to be clear, neither the op of this image nor myself are saying that the stuff listed here is cringe, these are just some design choices that people (often times kids) get mocked for. like don't lie, we've all done at least a few of these, but now it's 2020 we can do whatever we want)

babushka

zylphide
