Anyone have any idea why the succulent (unknown) at the center is turning yellow? Is it getting too much sun? The leaves still feel firm to touch. Ive grown it from cutting and repotted it when it put out some roots. The leaves looked slightly yellow when I repot it 1 week ago and now it's getting more yellow.

Hi dreamyjx, the plant is losing its leaves and dying probably due to the climate difference from where it came from eg. China, Cameron highlands or holland. I had this plant a few months ago and it had the same problems as yours.

Oh. So sad that its dying. Anyway to save the plant?
For now, I'll probably shift it to a less bright area and see if it helps.

The problem actually lies with the weather and temperature. Other countries have cooler weather and Singapore is too hot. Thus the plant is unable to adapt well and would not be able to undergo respiration while photosynthesizing.

Sorry for the late reply. No. 3 looks like Gymnocalycium mihanovichi. No. 4 looks like Mammillaria elongata cristata

This succulent should be able to take our tropical heat and humidity. Yellow leaves are normal during the initial rooting process. Give it more sun to retain its tight rosettes and water when the top layer starts to turn dry.
