Rotting Zebra Haworthia, HELPP
I think my Zebra haworthia is rotting. I got him when the tips of his leaves were drying already and had to repot him because his old pot when horrible. His new pot has drainage holes, but I'm really concerned because his leaves on the bottom are turning brown and drying out, and the centre leaves are starting to slowly turn brown.

This plant is very tolerant of under watering, but will succumb quickly to rotting if overwatered. When kept as houseplants, they may require more water in the winter in dry indoor conditions, while outdoor plants may need no winter water. Allow the soil to dry out between watering. It is not unusual to go one or two weeks without giving the plants more water.
These plants only need repotting when it completely crowds the pot or new pups have formed; they can be removed. Too large of a container can lead to root rot. Make sure you use a cactus soil mix.
