♥ Super Rare Live Exotic Gibbaeum Heathii Plant aka Ice Plant♥

Watering: Keep plants barely moist! Overwatering is the most common problem people have with Living Stones. During the cold winter months, watering should be light and infrequent once again, until such as time as the days grow longer and the temperature begins to warm a bit. Generally, Lithops will do best being watered about once every 2-3 weeks (when not in active growth or flowering). Tap water or distilled water is fine. Treat it as a cactus. The plant can take a 'misting' every other day if desired, but this is not required. Be sure not to overwater!
Light: Lithops requires full to very bright sun (either direct or indirect). It can take full strength sun, but be mindful of sun burning the leaves. After repotting the plant, please allow 5-7 days for plant acclimate to changes in light quality. A window facing West, South or East should do nicely. Too much light is not a problem for Living Stones. Too little light is! If the plant appears to be 'reaching' for the window or light source, it needs more light!
Soil: Use a quick draining soil mix (a packaged soil mix for cactus and succulents should have sand added at the rate of about 60% soil mix to 40% sand by volume). Another good mix would be 40% peat moss and 60% perlite to allow even faster drainage
Cautions: Growing Lithops is harder and requires more attention than other succulent and cactus plants. Depending on the Lithop growing season, sometimes lithops will begin to naturally split, crack etc. Lithops can have scars on their sides and on top, this is natural and doesn't mean your lithop is dying. Lithops split. Any scarring is not permanent and will be shedded when they split! This is a natural process with Lithops. Sometimes they just die. No reason, it just happens.
