green / yellowish? This was newly planted in November and grew great. Nursery said to give it plenty of water to get it started and it grew well. However, areas started to die, so I cut out the water, showed the nursery pictures, attached below and they said it needed more water. Area started looking worse, leaves fell off and became "woody" looking, cut the water for the month. Now I am watering about 1 time a week 3/4 inch of water, I know a little much, but the ground was really dried out. New growth is dark green, but noticed some yellowing? Just not sure to cut water for a few weeks as even areas where the plants are dense look light greenish / yellowish or how to proceed?
It looks to be an infection from overwatering. These drought tolerant plants will want prefer dry areas.
I would treat with a fungicide, and only water during times of drought.

My pink ice plant did well until the daisies took over. Can I transplant it now....mid June? Thanks.
The best time to transplant is spring and fall, but if temperatures have not reached the 90s yet, you can transplant but with extra care. Transplant during the coolest time of day, probably early morning. When you dig them up, get as much root as possible and don't let the roots dry out before you get them in the new location. Have the new location ready before you dig them up. You will need to water them more to make sure they don't dry out till they are reestablished. Maybe once a day. That is where people get into trouble. It is easy to forget to water often.

hi, im a new gardener having found a little passion for it this year due to lockdown. I have little to no knowledge just a lot of enthusiasm. I grew some beautiful mesembryanthemum from seed and now they are ceasing to flower what do i need to do with them?
They have finished flowering for the season. You can give them fertilizer now, according to the article below. They are short-lived perennials, but if you experience frost during the winter and want to extend them into next season, be sure to put them in a container and bring them inside near a sunny window. They will need little water. Many just treat them as annuals unless they live in a frost free area.
Maybe rot, or too much fertilizer? It is Disney type, white flowers. Never problem before.started one area, now looks like losing all. Fungus? Little white flying bugs. Slimy green, then yellow and gray.
Perhaps the plant has been overwatered or you've experienced more rainfall than usual. Ice plant doesn't like to get waterlogged. These plants can suffer from downy mildew and, you're right, it is a fungus. Too much water will cause Ice Plant to develop root rot and subsequent death. I would dispose of it completely and wait a while before planting more. You may want to sterilize the soil, as well.https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/garden-how-to/soil-fertilizers/sterilizing-soil.htm

I do not have any other details or pictures. The plant was a stunning sparkly pink color last year.
They are not cold hardy in your area, so your ice plant won't return. They are treated as annuals in the colder zones.
My Ice Plants have stopped flowering for some time now. They flowered almost immediately once planted from cuttings, Any ideas? They have been planted for over 12 months now & the plants themselves are growing terrifically.
Unless you are overfertilizing, they probably aren't getting enough sun. Here is more:
Losing almost all of my ice plant ground cover. Thought at first was squirrels eating it but looks more like a disease.
They are very susceptible to overwatering and will succumb quickly. Downy mildew also is a problem in California.
