Living Stones: A Unique and Enigmatic Plant to Grow

If you’re one of those plant enthusiasts who loves to challenge yourself with unique plants, then the living stone is just the thing for you.

What are Living Stones?

Living stones, also known as Lithops, are a type of succulent that’s native to South Africa. They got their name because they look like small rocks or pebbles that blend in so well with their surroundings it becomes hard to see them.

How Do You Grow Them?

Growing living stones can be quite tricky but very rewarding at the same time. Firstly, these plants require soil that drains really well and doesn’t hold onto water too much. This means you need a mix that incorporates sand or gravel into your potting soil.

When planting lithops seeds, make sure not to bury them deep into the soil as they need sunlight for germination – just sprinkle them gently on top of the soil mixture instead.

Once your living stones start growing leaves (which usually takes about two weeks), it’s important not to overwater them as this could cause root rot since they store water within themselves.

So… How Long Does It Take To Grow Living Stones?

To answer this question simply would be unfair because there isn’t an exact timeframe for how long it takes a Lithop plant to grow fully. Usually, young Lithops take around 3-4 years before reaching maturity and producing flowers while some species may take longer than others. However, patience is key when it comes to growing these enigmatic little succulents!

In conclusion, if you’re looking for an interesting plant that will test your skills as a green thumb enthusiast while adding character and charm wherever placed – give growing Lithops or “living stones” a try! With proper care and attention, you’ll have a unique plant that will be the envy of any succulent collector.
