Lithops are small plants with just two leaves that hardly reach a height of more than an inch (2.5 cm) above the topsoil.
The thick, cushioned leaves resemble a fissure in an animal's foot or a collection of greenish-brown stones.
The Succulent plants do not have a true stem, and the majority of the plant is underground.
You can place your plant in the miniature garden.
Your Lithops need a lot of sunlight; 5 to 6 hours of direct sunlight per day is ideal.
It's best to have a window with a south-facing angle.
Always note that extreme heat can cause sunburn and harm to your Pebble plant's foliage.
If you discover that their containers absorb too much heat in the hot afternoons, move them to a less sunny location (they do need some shade) or cover them.
Every few days, rotate the pot of your Living stones a quarter turn to maintain the growth even.
A small amount of watering can be used to give your Pebble plant a modest amount of water every 10 to 14 days.
During the winter, your Lithops plants should be kept almost entirely dry.
After they've split open and the fresh set of leaves has begun to sprout in the spring, you start watering them regularly.
As it is one of the least maintenance plants to exist, just a regular well-draining potting mix will work just fine.
Since lithops are used to surviving in "lean" soils, there is no need to fertilise them.
Your plant is safe for pets and kids.
These tiny Living stones will rarely need to be repotted.
Lithops may often be kept in the same container for several years because they are such little plants. You will only need to reporting after dividing any pups.
As lithops have lengthy taproots, use a pot that is at least 4 inches deep.
Succulent Plants should be nested in the soil such that their upper edges are barely visible above the surface.
A decorative display can be created by topping the pot with multicoloured aquarium gravel or naturally coloured gravel. If you will use a decorative pot the display will be more attractive.
Are the leaves on your Living stones starting to fall off? Because they only have one pair of leaves at a time, the old leaves must die for the new ones to appear.
Your Lithops may grow new leaves without flowers in some cases. It happens because it's difficult to determine the exact cause most of the time, although it could be partly due to the Lithops being in the early stages of their growth cycle.
Lithops plants are commonly referred to as "living stones," but they also resemble cloven hooves. These little, split succulents are native to South Africa's deserts, yet they're widely available in garden centres and nurseries. Plants in the Lithops genus have a variety of colourful names. These Plants with unusual forms and growth habits are known as pebble plants, mimicry plants, flowering stones, and, of course, living stones.
