Hen and Chicks Plants are Dying

I have a house plant looks like a hen and chicks, but as it opens it has like cotton that spreads across it. I think it is called a spiderweb welock, but it seems to be slowly dying. I am not sure how to take care of it; I have tried everything.

I sounds like a fungus to me. Is it getting enough air circulation? Sometimes, they will get a fungus without proper air.

Take it outside and give it a good washing. Not the soil as too much water might kill it. Just a thought. Best of luck. I looked and looked online for an answer but to no avail.

I had the same thing that happened to my bottlebrush succulent (native to Africa), I dipped the pointed part of a bamboo skewer into 1/4 cup water with a drop of dish soap and carefully pick the cottony pest, it becomes stringy when you remove it and it seems to control the pest whatever its name is. But if caught in advanced stage, may not work anymore.

Is the web part of the plant? Some Hen & Chicks are naturally webby. If so, leave it alone and enjoy! Do be careful not to overwater, too.

How can you plant hens and chicks in a garden and not water them when other plants need water???

My Hens and Chicks are dying out, why? They are in a concrete planter and get lots of sunlight. They were beautiful and full when I was given them.
