Hmm.. so these guys already got a new leaf set this year. I noticed some of my lithops were getting burnt, so I pulled them back to mostly earlier morning sun. When they started to wrinkle, I watered. A lot didn’t plump up, I figure since I imported them late dec, maybe their roots haven’t recovered. Waited a month and then watered again. Nothing after two weeks so I pulled a couple of the worst looking ones to give water therapy. This guy still looks thirsty, but split at the bottom and shot

Roots out of the wound. I took it out of the water and it’s now drying out. I’m hoping it’ll scab up and survive

Oh dear... these plants are tricky for sure. Hope it pulls through. :-/ keep observing.

I killed six before I somewhat figured out the watering schedule they like in my apartment's climate.

@sushiwaitress the first ones I ever bought are doing fine! It’s this batch that isn’t doing so well. The largest of them are doing fine, but anything smaller than a cm or so, I just can’t figure out! I went and looked at this guy and it seems okay today. No sign of rot yet, although I’m afraid once I finally decide to pot it, THAT’S when it’ll go out all dramatically lol.

@KelsiBriana my baby was running to get to his bike and tripped and landed in it knee first. I grabbed him, brought him inside, and kind of just looked at it from the window lol. Picked them all up and repotted them when he took a nap.

@KelsiBriana Most of them are fine I think. Atom will be okay with his new family too. 😂 Just kidding. I was hovering over him, I just didn’t grab him quick enough. It startled him but we had Cheerios so it was all good lmao
