I saw a small pot of Lithops at Lowes today and couldn't pass up a pot of two for a couple bucks.
I've had a two other sets before about 10+ yrs ago. I managed to keep one for a yr or better and it actually bloomed for me.
Where I always seem to go wrong is winter care and watering.
These are growing in peat moss and perlite. Shouldn't a desert plant be in coarse sand or something of that nature?
Should they be kept warm yr round, or slightly cooler in the winter. I am thinking the latter?
Also, it's in a plastic pot. Would a terra cotta pot be better for soil breathing, or not necessary?
Any pointers at all would be great and well appreciated. I really do not want to fail again.
