@alovealoe I thought I'd show you how these are looking now. Any thoughts on their survival chances?

Unsure if this is because they were overwatered, are leggy or if this is normal? #advice

Too much water. This happened to my lithops seedling when I left it in the rain.

Should only be watered fall and spring. Never water when they are splitting and shedding the leaf pair.

@alovealoe thanks, it's so hard to know with watering because different websites/people give you different advice. I will trust yours and stop all watering for the time being. When I got my other pot of Lithops it was so damp moss was growing in it, so I thought I must not have been watering mine enough and it made me water more, and then this happens! Argh. Are they too long as well? They probably don't get enough sun.

Yeah the stores don't know how to care for them. Lithops need at least 6 hours of sunlight a day.

I'm not sure if it's too far gone. I'm also watching mine. I'll tag you.

They've grown quite a bit since I got them! Poor things probably want more sun but we have a dark house 🙁 #lithops #succulent

Nice! How much have they grown since you have them? I've heard lithops are very slow growing

comment

@alejandra hardly at all! The new leaves are coming through and the old ones will shrivel up; there are still only two "bodies" in the pot. Very interesting plants.

Can't believe this pot of #lithops was under £2. Bargain 😊 #succulent

Had to buy one of these "brains" at the Hampton Court flower show! Ugly, interesting plants! No idea yet how to care for it.
