Q. Haworthia Sunburn

I am sad and embarrassed to say I allowed my poor babies too much sun on my deck. I repotted and gave it a drink and brought indoors. Roots still look fine. Can i save it? If so, how? Thank you!

If there is any part of the plant that is still firm to the touch instead of mushy, cut it back to that point. Plants have an amazing gift of coming back. Put it in a pot that you can water from the bottom so it can soak up just what it needs.

Q. Haworthia problems

My indoor haworthia (zebra) has developed some yellowish-brownish coloration near the base, and feels very loose in the soil. Tamping down the soil hasn\\\’t helped to anchor it. I\\\’ve only had it a few weeks (watered it after 2 weeks). It\\\’s getting bright indirect light. Closeup photo attached. Any suggestions? Thanks!

This could be overwatering or even sunburn.

This is, usually, determined by the exact species. Some of these will develop this characteristic, while others will not. If you know this is a variety that is supposed to do this, then you will want to make sure that this gets as much sun as possible. These will have similar care to an aloe plant, and will not tolerate overwatering, or excessive cold.
