Is a cactus a Lithop?
In respect to this, do Lithops multiply?
Lithops will also naturally multiply when they split into two new halves.
Similarly, why do Lithops look like stones? Lithops (commonly called „flowering stones“ or „living stones“) are true mimicry plants: their shape, size and color causes them to resemble small stones in their natural surroundings. The plants blend in among the stones as a means of protection.
Furthermore, how do I know if my Lithop needs water?
Lithops should be left totally dry throughout winter and spring. Stop watering to allow the old leaf pair to dry out and the new pair develop. By early spring the new body should be visible. Watering can be resumed once the remains of the old body are completely shriveled and dry.
Do Lithops die after flowering?
All you really need to remember is to only water after the old leaves are dry and stop watering after the flower begins to die.
