Botanical name: Lithops
Common name: Living stones
Light: Prefers to receive 4-5 hours of direct sun a day. Preferably in the morning
Water: Give your lithop a good watering in early September (allow it to drain). Do not water in the winter - this is when they are growing and they get their water from the old leaves. In spring, the old leaves shrivel away and the new leaves are exposed. Start watering again when the old pair of leaves has completely shrivelled. Water a little at a time, allowing the compost to dry out between waterings. Lithops go dormant in summer, typically during the most extreme heat of their native southern African environment. Avoid watering them during this time, then give them a good drink in early September, when growth starts again.
