Description

Lithops are another one of those plants where you are not quite sure what nature was up to, but after closer inspection of its amazing ability to camouflage into rocky surrounding contrasted by its annual display of bright colors as it blooms make this particular plant one of the most amazing in the entire genus.

One amazing fact is it is made up of just 2 leaves and each year continues its life cycle by consuming the energy from both to produce a fresh set during a time when in their natural habitat there is not a drop of water around and most other plants have cut back their workload to preserve nutrients.

If you desirre to replicate this aazing change, watering should be halted to allow this natural process to happen each fall to spring, at which point the flower will emerge and show your it's surprisingly large yellow, white and other colored petals that attract insects to pollinate each lithop, producing seeds in the process that are so tiny, they appear to be dust to the human eye often tricking people to think they got an empty envelope when they order seeds online. After the flower has subsided, the 2 leaves will split apart and you will see the new lithop forming inside. As it grows, the sides will continue to shrivel more and more until finall the new years plant ahas fully emerged. It is at this point you can begind slowly watering again as the last years leave s wither away. The new Lithop will be perfect in every way, which also is a nice benefit in case you let it get a little sunburn, or in my case lasy year, a snail got to your precious plant :P ( i was mad, let me tell you, but guess what, He's back in action and looking better than ever!)

Each lithop (Depending on availability there will be different colors and species sold through this listing and may not be the exact one in the first picture with most varieities randomly selected with each purchase and more rare specimens sold seperately at the variations section when available) will be between 2/3 to 1 1/3 inches in diameter and shipped to you packaged securly with little to no soil. If you order more than 1 i will try my best to include a couple different ones to the best of my ability and inventory. They will need to be planted in a primarily sand and gravel or pumice based soil with a little soil or coco coir added to it. I suggest 1 part soil (cactus mix) 2 parts pumice 1-2 parts sand. You can then add small pea pebbles or soeme sort of small gravel aroud the lithops giving the whowle setupa natural appearance. Planting multiple lithops into a container, ise sure to impress friends, especially if hey all flower together in the fall, a suprise i still get exxcited for each tear.

MESEMB VARIETY PACK INCLUDES 4 UNIQUE LIVING ROCK SPECIES SELECTED FROM LITHOPS, AGURODERMA, LAPIDARIA, CONNOPHYTUM, PLEIOSPILOS , Cheiridopsis, GIBBAEUM AND MORE. YOU ARE GAURATEED 4 SPECIMENS BUT PACK MAY SOMETIMES INCLUDE MORE DEPENDING ON WHICH SPECIES ARE INCLUDED< DOUBLES TTACHED TOOEN ANOTHER ETC.

GENERAL INFORMATION FOR ALL LISTINGS:

If you have questions, as always, I am more than happy to answer them, both now and down the road should u run into problems or general questions you'd like to know more about.

Shipping:
-Priority shipping only due to fragile nature of plants and current wet/cold.snowy weather. This will assure the package arrives quickly without any damage caused by these elements. Please try to track your plant so it does not sit out in the snow (if applicable)
-Bare root shipping will not injure your succulent. Due to their ability to store water in their leaves, these plants do not go through the same shock that a tree or non succulent plant would so it will resume growth quickly after it is replanted, and sometimes even continuing while not before doing so.

Note/Infos: Colorful Succulents is the Etsy store of Santa Barbara Succulents and Santabarbaracactus.com, a micro nursery with limited public access here in the foothills of the Santa Ynez Mountains where we are blessed with ideal conditions for growing these wonderful plants. All of my succulents and cacti are individually cared for by me, Jens, and after initial propagation and for some, and indoor stage to protect the youngest seedlings, are grown outdoors, organically, using ONLY natural USDA organic approved fertilizers and minerals such as homemade compost, organic worm castings, bat guano, azomite etc producing strong plants maximizing their ability to withstand their maximum hot/cold temperatures, pest and/or disease much better then overfertilized/watered plants and are overall more hardy than those grown in greenhouses or indoors under artificial lights for their adult lives making them more susceptible to sunburn and cold/frost damage, and are often known to "deflate" once removed from their idealistic conditions and intense feeding schedules. The bottom line is, I try my best to grow strong, healthy Succulents and sell them to you at a fair price that covers my expenses and allows me to survive in an attempt to continue doing what I love to the best of my abilities!

CUSTOM ORDERS: are always available upon request. I have a large collection of succulents and cacti currently being propagated, grown and cared for as described above but only post a few at a time to assure that I can continue to provide the best customer service possible rather than trying to sell as many succulents as somehow possible. Yes, Of course, I need to sell to keep the business, but making sure that questions are answered promptly and accurately, shipments go out on time etc is my priority. If I do not have the plant you are looking for, I will let you know within 24-36 hrs whether I am able to get it for you from one of my affiliates who share the same philosophy, methods, and standards as me, and also own rare and collectors items usually unable to be accessed by many larger nurseries***
