Ice Plants Dying


samorsue added on August 18, 2015 | Answered

My ice plants (which are in full sun and the soil pretty dry) are turning brown (tan) and look like they are dying. Any suggestions? Water once a week on drip system.

I would actually check the soil to see if it is wet consistently, to much water can cause the issues you describe.
Disease or fungus could also be a possibility. Removal of the dead material and then using Neem Oil treatment would be recommended.
Neem Oil acts as both an insecticide and fungicide.
