I know my plants are elongated, should I cut them? Are they sick? Also, are my plants rotting? I’m not sure why the stems are brownish and it doesn’t seem normal. I haven’t watered them in 3 weeks so I’m not sure what is wrong. Thank you for the help in advanced 🙂

********************

your plants aren’t sick or rotting. the brown on the bottom of the stems is called corking, and it happens to all stems of succulents and cacti as they get older. they’re elongated because they’re not getting enough light – they’re stretching in search of some! you can cut them if you want, but unless you put them in a place with more light they’re going to stretch again.
