I don't know what is happening

Hi Saleh,

The photo is poor quality so I cannot identify it for sure, although it does look like a type of Sedum.

The symptoms you described are generic and can be caused by too little light, too much water or too little water. If you are like most people, you probably are not providing enough light and are keeping the soil too damp.

Most succulents thrive in a sunny indoor location right on a windowsill. The soil must be allowed to dry very deep into the pot before adding a small quantity of water. If you make the appropriate changes, I think you will see gradual improvement.

Please let me know if any of this is unclear or if you have any additional questions.
