Hello guys. I don't know very much about succulents. I have a few plants that look like they have rust spots on them and I'm not sure if its a fungus, mold or a disease. or maybe they are just sun burned? i dont know the history of this plants i just got them.
thanks guys happy growing :)

Welcome to the forum @carzyfarmer :)

Looks like cold damage, did they come by post? If it's not that then it could be they're too wet.

Take cuttings from the green parts, into damp but very gritty compost. You want it to drain well after watering.

The discoloured parts will probably shrivel and rot away so will want getting rid of.

thanks for the reply, i think you are correct in that they are to wet, we just had some rainy weather and this soil does not drain the best. these plants are rescue plants. i was just worried that it could be some type of mold or fungus
