Question: My succulent is sick

Hi everyone, I can't tell you the name of my succulent plant, it has an elongated shape, it's not big and fits in a jar the same size as a cup of coffee, since it was given to me it has grown little and pointed; as I have always kept her at home, I thought that to make her grow better it would be a good idea to keep her on the windowsill so that she would get some sun, but over time the pointed part has become brown and skimpy, now the tip is soft and I fear that the whole plant is about to die, the lower part is still green at the base, but in general the plant is becoming softer and softer. Can I still do something? Where did I go wrong?

Answer: My succulent is sick

Dear Jessica,

your little cactacea was growing in a stunted and pointed way as it was exposed to little light, since these plants need to be grown in full sunlight; the move after some time, however, led the plant to be affected by a rot, perhaps due to the colder climate or to an excess of watering.

All you have to do is cut the dark and soft part, until you find some green fabric with no spots or soft parts; then place the plant in a well-lit but warm area, as the plant was warm until a few weeks ago.

Water only sporadically, when the soil is perfectly dry.
