Q.How Do I Help My Succulents?
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.

(For context I give them a little spritz of water around once a week. Anything helps!
