SLC splitting leaves...

hi, all -

i was just watering my recently repotted SLC this evening and noticed some of the older leaves splitting (see images).

is this normal or is this an indication of a problem that needs correcting?

some of the older PSBs are beginning to shrivel but i chalk that up to age. the leaf split is what i'm more conerned about.

Dont move your plant too often. You could have drop that plant before and this could be
the damage mark. But it should do just fine.

If you suspect that the split might get longer, you can use florist's adhesive tape (the kind that does not stretch). This tape is waterproof and lasts for years on the plant. I usually make an X across the split and that seems to hold it.

thanks, all!

11Orchid26, it doesn't really seem to be growing, so i think i've got it under control. should it get worse, i will try your recommendation.
