Lithops aucampiae 'Living Stones'
Lithops aucampiae 'Living Stones' are small, brown-red, rock-like succulent plants that get up to 2 inches tall (with most of the plant living underground). They begin to form clusters of very thick, fleshy leaves as they age and are perfect as house plants.
Lithops' window-like tops allow light into the rest of the plant, so give them plenty of bright light. Lithops can be tricky when it comes to water – be sure the soil does not stay wet for long when watering spring through fall months and stop watering in winter months. Flowers and old leaves will begin to fade and shrivel at the end of fall months, queuing you to stop watering. Don't resume watering until spring! Lithops hold a ton of moisture in their thick leaves, so they'll survive. Watering during this time will only put them at risk of rotting. Lastly, be sure to plant your lithops in fast draining, porous soil with adequate drainage to help keep their roots dry.
NOTE: Every 2.5" pot of lithops contains 1-3 individual plants depending on size.
All plants are shipped bare-root, without soil or their original nursery pot. Orders ship Monday-Friday each week. Please allow 1-3 business days for your order to be processed.
Plant sizing is based on the diameter of the nursery pot (2.5", 4", 5" etc). Plants may be slightly larger or smaller than the pot they are grown in, depending on availability or time of year. While we do our best to ship plants as similar to those pictured as possible, please keep in mind that all plants are unique from one to the next, and display color, shape, and growth variation based on current environment, time of year, and other contributing factors.
We guarantee that your order will arive safely and in good condition or we'll make things right!
