We will send a well rooted potted plant with suitable potting soil for healthy growth of Lithops (as shown in main product image). Diameter of the pot is 3.8 inches. Lithops are small and beautiful plants. This is rare variety of plants and not commonly found at local nurseries. To know about size of lithops, please check our Instagram or facebook page. Lithops love to grow naturally on rocks and sea beaches. Nowadays, these tiny plants are attracting every plant lover in India. Color of these Lithops depends upon variety and surrounding climate as well. We can keep them indoor in light of LED also for some weeks. But, it is advised to grow them outdoor in shady area for better growth. Availability of morning direct sunlight for an hour will be added advantage for its better growth. Interestingly, they bloom too. They can’t be grown in soil based media.
Watering & Sunlight: This plant prefers to grow well in diffused sunlight. It can tolerate full Sun also during winter. During summer, must keep in shady area. We should do misting to water this plant. Lithops love misting. But please remember, not to over water. Misting should be done only after minimum 5 days, otherwise this will be a reason for overwatering. During winter season, we must reduce watering. Proper drainage by making sufficient holes in bottom of pot is must.
Soil: Its potting mix must be with fastest drainage. We can drainage media upto 70 % (river sand, crushed Leca, Perlite – use mix of them). All these items help in aeration also. We can mix upto 10% cocopeat and 10% vermi compost + 10% sterilised garden soil in its potting mix.
