This was a perfect plant. This started happening a week ago. All the leaves have gone from bright green to black. Some of the leaves are mushy.

I water this plant once a month.


your plant can't get water from anywhere. give it water more regularly, and put wood chips under it. then it will send a long tap root down into the soil.

This is a very accurate description of what i think the problem is: https://www.ted.com/talks/allan_savory_how_to_green_the_world_s_deserts_and_reverse_climate_change

it also looks like people have been stepping all over it, and crushing the leaves.

  • I thought same, so I watered this 3 days ago and the problem only worsened. Then I thought this is due to over-watering, so I haven't watered it till now. – 4-K Jun 3 '18 at 7:16
  • Was this plant growing well in that pot in that location prior to this? Or was it recently moved/repotted. And where are you located geographically. The only viable-looking piece I can see is the one in the bottom right. – Tim Nevins Jun 4 '18 at 15:09
