My Succulents are dying!

I just moved into a new dorm, its fairly small (one room with a shared bathroom). There is a large AC unit like in hotels that sits on the floor. I had kept all my plants on there originally but after a week I noticed they were all very dry and were wilting. I realized my ac was freezing them so I immediately moved them to other areas in my room. They all seem to be okay now except for one pot with several succulents. the cactus has become see-through and yellow on most of the lower portion and leaves have dropped on the others etc. I'm not sure what to do. Are they are still recovering or are they too far gone?.image

    The second and third pictures show a typically grafted  Gymnocalycium mihanovichii ; these yellow and orange forms are completely minus any chlorophyll , hence the colour . They cannot survive without the green grafting stock ; of which yours has rotted away !

    The other succulent maybe some form of Echeveria , or Crassula ovata ; both plants are 'too far gone' to make any recovery !image

     Oh man, do you think it was the ac that killed it?

    Maybe a combination of air-conditioning ,drastic temperature variations or even overwatering .

    The grafting stock beneath the ' Gymno ' is normally a Hylocereus species , (cheap to produce in the trade) , but highly susceptible to dampness .

    So not entirely your fault !! image
