I have a Haworthia (succulent) I bought in Dobbies ... very pretty wee thing in a glass vase all decorated with different coloured sands, I'm sure you can picture the kind of thing....
It sits very happily in my downstairs hall in the shade and I only spray it lightly with a water spray (whenever I remember to do it!).
I think my housesitter may have watered it whilst I was on holiday - my fault for asking her to water my plants - and now I see the leaves seem to have rotted around the base and are just pulling off.
Is it ruined? I can't really take it out of the vase as it'll disturb all the sand round about it.
Should I pull off the rotten leaves and hope that'll grow back?
