An Amazing Tale

29 Jun

Here’s an amazing and true tale.

Last year, my friend purchased a pot full of Lithops from a very reputable seller in Australia.  Sadly, her dogs ate them shortly after she recieved them.  She never told me about this until just this week when she contacted me full of excitement!  She had scooped all the soil back into the pot at the time of the Lithops demise and never gave it another thought until over a year later when she retrieved the pot to sow some new seeds.  Low and behold, there were two Lithops growing in the discarded pot!  No water or care what so ever for over a year and they were not only able to establish themselves, they were able to thrive!

If that is not a testament to how robust Lithops are and how strong their will to survive is, I don’t know what else to say.  And if you take anything away from this story, let it be that Lithops are well equipt to survive without our help (or interference).  So stop over watering 😀
