Succulents leaves turning pink

Postby Katie » Sat Sep 12, 2015 1:11 pm

I have notice a slight pinky colour on the stem of my orbiera variegated and the new shoots on my epiphyllum is this caused by stress? I have UV stablished large bubble all over the 8x6 greenhouse with 2 openers and door is left open all day.
Is there a cure for this? I did just have green shading but took it down when the weather changed and put up the bubble,only for the sun to come back out.i did read that some growers only use bubble.The greenhouse faces North so the sun is on 2 sides from 11am to dusk.I am East Anglian but South of it.
Do echeveneria glauca plants need more water than other cactus.After getting a fright over watering some.
Should I be easing off on watering all but the lithops.

Pink shoots on epiphyllum and echeveria glauca

Postby Katie » Sat Sep 12, 2015 4:25 pm

I have pink shoots on my epiphyllum and a pinky tinge on my echeveria glauca cacti.
My greenhouse is bubbled with UV stablised bubble wrap and all vents are open including the door.Its 8x6.
What could be the cause of this and is there a cure.i did have the greenhouse shaded with shading but took down and just left the bubble,which I understood to be ok.I can put it back up if needed the greenhouse faces North and we live in the south of East Anglian.The sun had disappeared but has come back again,so the sun is on the greenhouse all day almost.
Some ideas to what is going on would be helpful.

Hi Katie,
I've merged your two topics due to their similar nature,

Sorry I got confused. I thought the computer had eaten the first post.

Hi Katie!

I'm not much use in giving advice about Epiphyllum or Echeveria, I just wanted to say you should probably post a new thread in the main plant forum about this. That's where you'll find most people and I'm sure someone happy to give advice :smile:
