Caring For Lapidaria
1) Make sure that there is enough and even sunlight exposure to maintain the form and color of the plant. Keeping them under shade will cause the leaves to turn yellowish and elongated.
2) Although this plant likes it warm and humid, the extreme heat of summer leads to dormancy. The optimal growing temperature is 15-20 degrees celsius.
3) The best way to propagate is by seed using the same method as growing Lithops. Seeds are sown in a coarse well-draining medium, usually made of pumice, sand, and grit.
4) Water them during the growing season once or twice a week. The watering needs depend on the humidity levels. Make sure the soil dries out entirely between each watering.

Care For Lithops

Lithops are very sensitive to their growing environments. They usually dislike low temperature and direct strong sunlight. They need a growing environment with temperature preferably about 15-30 degree celsius.

Lithops also expect high quality soil permeability mixture. Ensure a well ventilated growing environment. 

Important note: Do not overwater. Make sure only water when the soil is dry. The soil must be watered completely and thoroughly each time.
