Lithops, or “Living Stones”, are cool succulent plants that grow close to the surface and need very little water. Usually only one pair of leaves is visible above the soil. The leaves are plump, colorful, and uniquely patterned to resemble stones. A fissure separates the two leaves and make way for new growth.
You will receive the plants and pot pictured. We will ship these in the pot, but may have to remove some soil if necessary. The plants for sale are live, rooted plants. Please allow for some variance in color. Notice the size of the plants in the pot. These are small plants and are very slow-growing.
Lithops are generally considered an easy-care plant, although overwatering can occur easily. Please follow the general Lithop Watering Guide below and/or adjust as you conditions require.
The plants are perfect for sunny spots in your favorite plant or small rock garden.
Perfect plant for terrariums, highly drought tolerant with very low water needs.
This plant ships bare root.
Lithops Watering Guide:
Here are some general watering tips to consider when caring for your lithops.
- Do not water during dormant season, spring to early fall.
- Water every 2-3 weeks when summer ends, or as the plant requires. Observe your plant for signs of puckering, which tells you it needs a bit more water.
- Do not water when leaves split and new growth is forming. Look for this around winter time.
Peak growth season: Fall/winter
Propagation: Division or seeds
Sun: Morning sun, bright shade.
This plant likes sun but not too much heat. These are also frost sensitive, so please protect in freezing temperatures.
Water when soil is dry to the touch. Will require more water in the fall.
