    I decided not to check cuz the rotting may stop since the soil has finally dried out. I'm hoping for the best.

    Lithops need no water in winter in cold climates and also reduced water in hot summers when they also will tend to dormancy. Most watering is needed in milder autumn weather and perhaps a little less in mild spring weather. Leaving these little master of thirst out in rain is a very dangerous practise for these little plants.

    I've said it before, and i'll say it again...as far as lithops are concerned, if you try to take care of them, they're going to die.

    Ummm wow 7 months and this post is alive again? Odd. Anyway the lithop croaked soon after. I'm going to get another one on my next trip to home depot. This time I'll neglect it as much as possible! [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/new/smile_m_32.gif[/img] I just realized...these smileys creep the hell outta me.

    I had a Lithop last year. I did not water it or let it get rained on. It seemed okay for about two weeks, putting out a new set of leaf-things(whatever you call them?). Then suddenly it turned a lighter color and died. I want to grow some but what is the trick? Mine seemed like they got sunburned. Is it possible they were grown in a green house that was a little shady and when I stuck them out in the hot full Florida sun they got toasted?
