Time to start your lithops collection! Lithops are also known as Living Stones because the look like little pebbles. Their range of colors includes gray, brown, rust, green and pink, and each has detailed patterns on the leaves, making them awesome for collecting. The small spots on the top surface of the leaves act as small windows that let light into the plant. Each pair of leaves is about 1 to 2 inches across and the shed each year to make way for new ones.
Lithops need a lot of light, so give them as much sun as possible. Their growing season is during the summer months, during which they should be watered roughly every two weeks or when the soil is completely dry. Keep them dry! During flowering season, at the end of summer, they produce a brightly colored blossom in the center of each pair of leaves. Once the flowers drop in the autumn and winter months, you can stop watering them – yup, you read that right. In the spring, they will shed their bottom leaves to make room for new growth and you can start watering again. :)
The Lithops kit comes with 2-4 lithops plants, a 4 inch cube pot in matte black or matte white, 1 lb of Juicykits cactus mix, 1/2 lb of jet black lava rock, and a cute little note card. Supplies are limited, so don't wait to order.
