Look after your Lithops spp

Look after your Lithops by ignoring them as much as possible - resist the temptation to water them for much of the year (autumn to spring) when they are dormant; water sparing May- October only when the compost has dried out, with a little dilute cactus fertiliser to encourage flowering . Lithops spp. are actually closely related to the Hottentot Fig  (Carpobrotus edulis) which is a Schedule 9 invasive non-native plant affecting the coasts of Cornwall.
