Living Stone Lithops


Living Stone, aka Lithops, is a genus of succulent plants in the ice plant family Aizoaceae, native to southern Africa. It got its name from its stone-like looking. It is a slow grower that has plump leaves with long taproots that grow underground, and are very sensitive to over-watering. Lithops thrive in compacted, sandy soil with little water and blistering hot temperatures.

They love as much sun as possible. The best spot for them is where they can see the sun for the majority of the day. But can grow in indirect light as well.
They will thrive in a bright light environment. A good bright place inside your home would be on the window sill or a stool that is right next to a window. If you can, put them outside when the temperature allows.
They like the soil to be completely dry before the next watering. It may vary depends on your environment and light condition, but for them, it's always safer to underwater.
Their humidity requirement is low. So do not mist them or put them in an aquarium.
With less light, Lithops will grow tall and skinny, versus in a high light environment, it will stay short can chubby. If you ever see your living stone is growing too tall, give them more light.
The plant comes with a default nursery pot. The nursery pot is usually 0.5" - 1" smaller than stated to fit into the same size decorative pot. Washable Paper Planter Bags are sold separately.
