First flower March 2006. It is the same family as Lithops from South Africa. Also known as Living Stones. They need very good drainage - one part potting compost, one-part peat or coir based compost, one-part sharp sand or grit, one part broken crocks or gravel. Do NOT overwater, they cannot stand moist soil. Water once a month in summer, less in winter. They flower in late Autumn. Afer flowering, cease watering and allow to dry out completely, misting occasionally. No feeding is necessary. Grow indoors in part sunlight at 24-35C during the day and not dropping below 10C during the winter.
