How to use the Lithops Soil Mix

Using the mix is easy!  start with removing as much of the old soil as possible. Gently squeeze the pot while holding it sideways to loosen up the plant. Run the roots under lukewarm tap water to remove the last pieces and bits. 

Also, make sure to remove any dead foliage that may still be on the plant using scissors. Now your plant is ready for its fresh Lithops soil. Add a small layer of Lithops mix at the bottom of the pot.

Place the plant in the pot, and slowly add Lithops soil to the sides to fill it up. Make sure that the point where the roots meet the plant is just buried under the Lithops soil. 

Lightly pat the Lithops mix down into the pot. Make sure to water the Lithops mix thoroughly after repotting, as this helps settle the mix and roots down.

Why the Lithops mix works. 

The lithops mix drains very quickly because of the perlite & pumice, the sand helps weigh the plants down and the small number of worm castings assist in holding onto a bit of water when you do water so that they have ample time to take a drink.

The original habitat of the Lithops plants

Lithops originate from rocky, sandy deserts where the sun is plenty and water is sparse. They rely on sparse rainfalls and some species even solely rely on mist! They thrive in well-draining soil consisting mainly of rocks & sand. This lithops mix mimics that environment

How to care for Lithops plants

Lithops require very little water and nutrients. It is advised to only water your lithops once a month in the summer, and stop watering completely around the start of winter. A good way to check is if the lithops is starting to wrinkle, that means it is ready for another drink. It does not require a lot of fertilisers, but can be fed during the blooming season to encourage flower growth. 

Lithops prefer lots of early morning sun, and partial shade during the afternoon. While they do need lots of light, the heat of the sun can cause burns & damage their foliage.

At Sybotanica we not only want to make plants happy, but people happy as well. In our production team we exclusively hire people with a distance from the workforce, and help them rehabilitate to the normal working life.


Take Peter for example:

Peter has been with Sybotanica since the 1st hour, and has now been promoted to head of production & a permanent contract! Where he was the first employee, he now manages a team of 3 production workers.

What makes this achievement even more impressive is that Peter achieved all this with only 10% visibility! 🕶️ With a few minor adjustments to his working environment, Peter is able to perform his job 100%.

Peter has now been through two moves and knows all the ins & outs of Sybotanica. He can even feel by the potting soil which variety it is. That's quite a challenge with 16 different mixes!

We are confident that Peter will keep production running smoothly in the coming years too! 💪

FAQ's

Not sure if the Lithops mix is right for your plant?

Check out the SYBASoil Guide

How much Lithops mix do I need?

Check out this pot volume calculator tool to calculate how much Lithops mix you need.

When do I need to re-feed the soil?

The nutrients in SYBASoil will run out in ~6 months on average. We recommend refeeding by removing the top part of the soil and adding 10-20% of the volume with fresh worm castings.

How long does SYBASoil stay fresh?

You can store SYBASoil for about 2 years. Make sure to store it cool, dark and closed off. The effectiveness of the nutrients can degrade over the years. Simply add some fresh worm castings to give the soil new life.

When do I repot the plant?

We recommend repotting once any of these things happen:
- You see roots growing out of the bottom of the pot
- The soil dries very quickly between watering
- The plant is top-heavy and wants to fall over
- Roots are pushing the plant up and out of the container
- Every 1 to 2 years

How to recycle SYBASoil packaging

Our packaging can be recycled at your local plastic recycling facility.

You can also re-use it for storage, or leave a little soil and use it as a propagation box!

How to water plants grown on the Lithops mix

Let the soil dry out completely (lift the pot to feel the weight, it should be a lot lighter than after watering) before watering again.
