Q.

why my portularia plant is losing its leaves

Zone Milwaukee, WI 53217 | Anonymous added on December 29, 2018 | Answered

I have tons of succulents that I bring inside for the winter because I live in wisconsin. All of my succulents are in windows and do really well, I have been watering about every 3 weeks and all are doing well except for the partularia which are losing all of their leaves. Am I not watering enough? Thanks

These are a bit sensitive to bright light and cool temperatures. The most common cause for leaf drop is too much sunlight. They need to be in an area that is bright, but is not receiving direct light.
