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.
