Q.How Do I Help My Succulents?

Zone 06615 | mealiebren added on April 23, 2020 | Answered

My roommate recently revealed that he had a succulent in his room that he had been neglecting for a while. I took it from him and have been trying to work with it but I’m not sure I’m doing well. I repotted it into a bigger pot but they don’t look great. There are two unidentified ones and a type of zebra succulent that I’m afraid is dead. He’s pretty dry but I don’t know when I should just give up on him. He is also lacking many strong roots which concerns me. I just don’t know if I should water more or less or what? (For context I give them a little spritz of water around once a week. Anything helps!

Here are a couple of articles that will help:
