Lithops plants prefer temperatures between 50°F (10°C) and 85°F (29°C). They can tolerate temperatures as low as 40°F (4.5°C) and as high as 100°F (38°C) for short periods.
These plants require bright, direct sunlight to thrive. They are adapted to grow in areas with high levels of light, and insufficient light can cause them to become elongated and lose their characteristic shape.
These plants are adapted to dry, arid conditions and can tolerate low humidity levels. It is best to keep the humidity levels around Lithops plants low, preferably between 30-40%.
Lithops plants are succulents, which means that they store water in their leaves and can tolerate periods of drought. It is important to water sparingly and only when the soil is completely dry. During the summer months, when the plant is actively growing, you can water it once every two weeks or so.


Lithops are unique and fascinating plants, also known as “living stones” or “stone plants” due to their ability to blend in with their surroundings. Here are some tips for growing Living Stones successfully:

  • Light: Lithops require bright, direct sunlight to grow properly. Place them in a south-facing window or outside in the full sun if possible.
  • Soil: These Plants prefer a well-draining soil mix that is low in organic matter. A mixture of sand, perlite, and gravel is ideal. Avoid using potting soil or compost as they tend to retain too much moisture.
  • Watering: These are drought-tolerant plants that store water in their leaves. Water sparingly and only when the soil is completely dry. Overwatering can lead to rot and fungal diseases.
  • Temperature: These Plants prefer warm temperatures between 70-85°F (21-29°C) during the growing season. During the winter, they can tolerate cooler temperatures but avoid exposing them to frost.
  • Fertilizer: These Plants do not require regular fertilization, but you can apply a low-nitrogen fertilizer once a month during the growing season to help promote healthy growth.
  • Repotting: These Plants have shallow roots and prefer to be pot-bound, so only repot when necessary. When repotting, use a pot that is only slightly larger than the current one.
  • Pests and Diseases: These Plants are generally pest-free, but they can be susceptible to mealybugs, spider mites, and other insects. To prevent diseases, avoid overhead watering and ensure good air circulation around the plant.


Lithops, also known as “living stone plants,” are a unique type of succulent that is native to southern Africa. These plants have evolved to blend in with their surroundings as a defense mechanism against predators. Lithops come in a variety of colors, ranging from green to brown to gray, and their flattened, rounded leaves can resemble small stones or pebbles.

One interesting feature of lithops is that they have a very unique way of photosynthesizing. Unlike other plants, which use their leaves to absorb sunlight, lithops have a specialized tissue in their stems that is able to carry out photosynthesis. This allows the plant to conserve water and protect itself from the intense heat and sun in its native habitat.

Another interesting fact about lithops is that they are able to go into a dormant state during periods of drought. During this time, the plant will shrink and lose some of its colors, but it is able to survive for months without water. When the rains come again, the lithops will absorb water and plump up once more.

In addition to being fascinating and unique plants, lithops are also relatively easy to care for. They require bright light but should be protected from direct sunlight during the hottest part of the day. They also need well-draining soil and should be watered sparingly, allowing the soil to dry out completely between waterings.

Overall, lithops are intriguing and low-maintenance plants that can add a touch of natural wonder to any indoor or outdoor space.
