$25.00

Lithops, also known as living stone plants, are a type of succulent plants, they are colourful and are known to be extremely drought tolerant. Lithops can grow for decades in the same pot without repotting, but repotting can be done to split the plants.

Water: Lithops require very little water. In shelter, water a little bit every two - three weeks or so. Do not over-water, Lithops rot very quickly when watered in excess. Some gardeners water a little bit (around 1 tablespoon) when the plant starts developing wrinkles on its edges.

 

Fertiliser: Lithops require little to no fertilizing. If you do fertilize them, use a diluted cacti fertilizer.

TIPS

 

Soil for Lithops

Lithops should be grown in a high drainage medium. Make or buy a Lithops medium that include sand, perlite, expanded clay and other ingredients. A suitable medium for succulent plants needs to provide good drainage (not be water logged), hold moisture, and give roots room to grow.

 

Light Requirements

All plants depend on light for their survival, thus making sure your Lithops get the right amount of light is key to keeping them happy. In a container pot, group your succulent plants with other plants of similar light requirements. Don't mix shade lovers with sun lovers in a single pot; one or both of them will be unhappy, depending on where you place the pot.
