lith-OPPS

Family: Aizoaceae

Origin: Southern Africa

Growth: Splitting

Light: Full sun

Foot Candles: 250+

Water: Let dry completely. Should not be watering  more than 6 times per year. Plant should wrinkle very slightly to indicate it needs water.

Humidity: Not required

Container: Pot with drainage

Nutrients: 7-7-7 only in Spring

Interiorscape Use: Novelty, desktop plant

Common Pests: Mealybugs, Aphids, Spider Mites, Scale, Thrips.

Common Issues: Overwatering can easily occur, as the plant never developed the genetics to stop the intake of water when it has reached capacity, resulting in the plant literally popping like a balloon from too much water being pulled into the tissue. Also susceptible to popping from being poked with sharp fingernails.    

Comments: A great novelty plant that resembles a small pebble. The flower emerges from the ‘crack’ between the two leaves. Each year the plant will develop a new set of leaves after flowering. Comes in many colours and patterns.

Toxicity: Safe.
