    well first off
    direct sun might not be the best choice for 6/more hours.

    Welcome to the forums, Ryan! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile.gif[/img]
    No, first off, this is in the wrong forum. [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img]
    Secondly, there are loads off answers:
    1) Minerals
    2) They're frying in the heat
    3) They might be in shock from damage whatsoever.
    and so on and so forth...

    Spatulata generally is a hardy species, so its is a wonder why it is dying. Check with the experts, anyone should know a lot about this easy species.

    Someone move this to the Dosera forum, you'll get more answers there. Hmmm, now that I think of it, there should be a caare guide for dosera - there's one for VFT! Anyone wanna contribute?

    Ps, You speak better English (as a second language) than most ppl around here. Keep up the good work!

    If the plants were taken from indoor conditions to outdoor conditions without a slow period of adjustment, it is likely that they are sunburned. This would be the most likely diagnosis I think, based on what you have said.

    If this is the case, the older leaves will die off, and nothing can be done. Look to the center of the plants, is this still growing or at least green?

    D. spatulata forms can return from the roots, if given enough time, which you may not have if you are in a temperate area, it generally takes a couple of months.
