That's good as you're not supposed to water them during the changing of the leaves. And not much in summer either.

@muzz Once they're "adults" they change leaves about once a year. (I don't actually know what makes them considered seedlings vs adults, whether it's time or size.) My seedlings change leaves 2-3x in the first year and slow down the bigger they get. As for branching off new heads, that varies a lot by species, so I can't predict. 🤷‍♀️

Oh thank you for this information. That's great.So they don't always grow a new one ? @sushiwaitress

@muzz As far as I know they don't necessarily have twins every year when they change leaves. I've only kept lithops for 11 months and 2 weeks so far so I'm still relatively a newbie. #alwayslearning

Only one of my ten became two. I've been told not to seperate them though. I don't water when they're changing leaves or between Mother's Day and Father's Day and in the other summer months only a teaspoon a fortnight. So far they are doing well.
