Why did my succulent change colors?

As succulents receive proper care, you may notice a change in color. This is completely normal! Find out what can cause such a color change. 

Just as succulents stretch out from not getting enough light, they may also lose their vibrant colors. Succulents such as Sedum nussbaumerianum need bright sunlight all day in order to maintain their bright colors. 

Amount of Light

Interestingly, perfectly watered succulents often revert to a green color. A little “stress” from not quite enough water can actually cause succulents to “blush” or change colors.  

Perfect Watering

If you know a succulent could be a different color than green, try letting the soil dry out for a little longer than normal and see what happens! 

Another way to “stress” succulents into changing color is cold weather. The ideal temperature for most succulents is somewhere around 70 degrees fahrenheit.

Cold Temperatures

Many succulents can't handle temperatures below freezing for very many nights. If you live in a four season climate with snow, Sempervivum will be the best color-changing succulent option for your outdoor garden.
