Okay first off, I know NOTHING about plants. The only thing I've ever successfully grown was some kind of ivy, basically because it's impossible to kill.
Recently I bought some succulents, my favorite being "baby toes." It was outgrowing the little pot it came in, so about a week ago I transplanted it to a larger pot, along with a "split rock" and some other succulent I forget the name of. The other two plants are doing just fine, but the baby toes are all dying! The soil was dry when I did it... I just popped the whole clump out of the little pot, stuck it into the bigger pot with the other two plants, packed some MiracleGro soil in around them, and watered it. Where did I go wrong?
Yes, that's it. It has always been inside, on a windowsill that gets little direct sunlight, in an air conditioned room of 70-75 degrees. It was growing like crazy until I tried to repot it, then it started dying like the next day. I don't think I disturbed the roots much, if at all, because the whole soil clump from the original pot stayed in one piece throughout. I just can't think of what I did wrong, particularly when the other two succulents in the same pot made the transition just fine.
