The the space in between leaves is indicating they have been needing much more light for awhile. Droopy leaves could be over or under watering. Or possibly even pest or other issues. Pretty hard to say without more info. How often do you water, when was last watering, what soil is it in. Have you inspected closely for signs of pest or disease.

Haven’t taking them outside a whole lot for 31 days. We bought them a month ago & they have been doing great since we repotting them into clay pots with the pictures I’ll post.

Trust this, the plant is etiolated so it needs sun. It doesn’t matter if it came to you like that. Is leaning because of lack of sun. Most succulents are not indoor plants unless you are able to provide artificial lighting or good sun exposure.

We have been doing artificial lighting until the sun reaches it. All my other succulents are doing great. We have 6 succulent, 1 Venus Fly Trap & 2 hanging plants all inside that are all doing great.
