QUICK GUIDE ON HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR LITHOPS
A.K.A ROYAL FLUSH
Remove soil from roots and plant royal flush in 100% pumice rock to mimic its natural environment in South Africa. You can order this from amazon. Pumice aids in preventing overwatering.
4-5 hours direct morning light.
Best setting in a east or south facing window (with adequate shade).
Little to no water.
Winter months- do not water
Summer months- do not water unless if a prominent shriveling occurs during the summer, it is safe to give just enough water to restore the firm appearance of the plant. Water lightly so that about only the top one-half inch or so of the soil is moistened. Never water deeply when the plants are dormant.
Fall – water twice in September (bi-weekly).
Spring – water twice in March and April (bi-weekly), watering lightly, increasing the amount of water gradually, working up to several good drenching’s before end of April.
