Lithops – Living Stones
The chameleon of succulents, Living Stones, Lithops, look like little soft pebbles. Each Living Stone features two thick leaves with an interesting textural pattern on the top that is begging to touched. The tiny and interesting Living Stones may be planted alone in a small container or grouped to create a little Living Stone community.
Pet safe houseplant – non-toxic to cats and dogs.
Plant in cactus or succulent mix. Water sparingly, usually every two weeks during the growing season. Lithops go dormant in fall then in winter or early spring will begin to grow new leaves. In early fall refrain from watering completely only to begin watering again once the old foliage has completely withered away, sometimes as late as May. Requiring about 5 hours of sunlight a day, place in an eastern or western facing window. Bring Lithops indoors when temperatures dip below 40.
