Description Sowing More Info Delivery
These curious little succulents camouflage themselves as rounded pebbles, hence the common name of Living Stone Plant! Lithops are compact and very low maintenance, but always make an intriguing display! Although easy to grow from seed, Living stones are very slow growing so patience is required. Group them together on a bright windowsill for the best impact! At maturity, they may even produce a few daisy like flowers in late summer! Height and spread: 5cm (2").


1 packet (6 seeds) (KB5901)

Sow Lithops seeds on the surface of a free-draining, gritty compost and cover with a very fine sprinkling of silver sand. Place in a propagator or seal the seed tray inside a polythene bag, maintaining a temperature of 18-27°C (65-80°F) until after germination, which can be erratic and usually takes 2-12 weeks. Do not exclude light when growing as this helps germination. Keep the surface of the compost moist but not waterlogged.

When seedlings are large enough to handle, transplant them into trays or 5cm (2") pots of gritty potting mix and continue to grow in warm conditions. Once they are well grown, pot Lithops plants on into 7.5cm (3") pots, and water carefully until established. Lithops are slow growing so patience is required.

Lithops plants are slow growing so patience is required. In summer, water regularly with soft water or rain water. Allow the compost to dry out slightly between watering. Avoid leaving Lithops in standing water as this will cause them to rot. House plants should be fed regularly between March and September when they are in active growth. In winter, while the plant is dormant, gradually reduce watering and allow the compost to remain dry.
