Here is more specific information for certain species of succulents: I do tend to sell alot of these wonderful “Living Rocks” and a few “Organ Pipe” now and again, so please read this if you purchased one:
Lithops species (“Living Stones”) :Pleiospilos nelii (“Split Rock”) Conophytum Fenestraria rhopalophylla (“Baby Toes”)
- Dormant during summer months (approximately June thru August), water sparingly.
- Water when soil is dry; usually every 2 – 3 weeks.
- Plants entering dormacy will begin forming a papery outer skin.
- During growing season, water when soil is near drying. Water more frequently than summer months, but allow soil to dry between waterings.
The following specimen plants may be placed in bright or filtered light:
Lemaireocereus marginatus (“Organ-Pipe”)
Water: (Outdoors) During warmer months, water once a week if soil is dry or near drying. During extremely hot weather, some cacti may need to be watered 2 – 3 times per week, depending on the dryness of the soil. During winter months, watering plants every 2 weeks should be sufficient. Let soil dry out between waterings.
(Indoors) During winter months or when plant is dormant, water once a month. During warmer months (spring and summer), if soil is dry, it may be necessary to water more often (e.g., every two weeks), or to give the plant a good watering (up to 1 gallon of water) and let the soil dry out between waterings.
