Could someone give me advice on how to save a dying String of Nickels, I just purchased 2 of these plants a few weeks ago & they are dying...I have tried to contace the company that produced them for help, no reply whatsoever, but anyway, the plant is supposed to have filtered light & not too wet soil, which I have it in a great location & monitor the water, however the plants looks like it is turning to mush & just literally dying rapidly.
I would GREATLY appreciate any help that can be offered, as these were not inexpensive plants!

Is this the plant?

If so, it wants some direct sun and to dry out between waterings. Sounds like yours might be getting too much water and not enoutg sun. Good luck!

No, that is not the same plant but thanks for your reply.
Hopefully I can save the plant, I have taken many cuttings but the original plant is pretty much a goner.

Send us a pic, please. I don't know String of Nickels and I'd like to help, but I can't without knowing what we're talking about. That's what Google came up with. Do you have another name for it?
