Halloween is coming up and Lithops plants are pretty spooky. They're so low-maintenance that it's confusing and they're not very forgiving either. My first Lithops was already squishy when I got it, and I thought I could nurture it but it doesn't work that way. Dead.
SPRING Water once the old leaves have withered
SUMMER Water ONLY when wrinkled (heat = no growth)
AUTUMN Water until flowering is done or new leaves start
WINTER Do NOT water while new leaves are emerging
The "parent" plant of these two was plump and tall when I got it, and these two popped out like little tall noodles. Growing season is really soon and I wonder what the new sprouts will look like! Hopefully it'll be more plump and pebble-like instead of ...uh, phallic.
As for these little dumplings...
They look a lot brighter than their old selves and still like a brain!
I didn't water them this year because their old leaves haven't fully dried out yet. But I just put them under more sunlight so that they'd draw out the remaining water from their old skins.
