Caring for living stones, also known as Lithops, can be quite rewarding due to their unique appearance and relatively low-maintenance needs. Here’s a friendly guide to keep your living stones healthy and thriving:

Light

  • Bright, direct light: Lithops need plenty of bright light to thrive. Place them in a sunny windowsill where they can get at least 4-5 hours of direct sunlight each day. If you notice your Lithops stretching or losing their compact shape, it might be a sign they need more light.

Water

  • Minimal watering: Lithops are adapted to arid environments and require very little water. Water them sparingly, only when the soil is completely dry. During their growing season (spring and fall), water every few weeks. In the dormant periods (summer and winter), reduce watering even further or stop altogether.
  • Avoid overwatering: Overwatering is the most common cause of problems with Lithops. Ensure the soil is thoroughly dry before watering again, and avoid getting water directly on the leaves.

Soil

  • Well-draining soil: Use a cactus or succulent mix that drains very well. You can also create your own mix by combining equal parts of potting soil, coarse sand, and perlite or pumice. Good drainage is essential to prevent root rot.

Potting

  • Small, shallow pots: Lithops have shallow root systems and do well in small, shallow pots. Ensure the pot has drainage holes to allow excess water to escape.

Temperature

  • Warm temperatures: These plants prefer warm temperatures and can tolerate a range from 65-80°F (18-27°C). They can handle cooler temperatures in winter, down to around 50°F (10°C), as long as they are kept dry.

Humidity

  • Low humidity: Lithops thrive in dry conditions and do not require high humidity. Avoid placing them in overly humid environments.
