Trimming Old Lithops Leaves (and a rescue attempt!)

Trimming Old Lithops Leaves (and a rescue attempt!) If you live in a humid climate, you may find that the old leaves on your Lithops refuse to throughly dry. Here are some tips on what you can do to help remove them so water doesn’t get trapped between the old growth and the new plants (which would potentially cause them to rot.)

I also operate on two sad Lithops to see if there’s any new growth inside that can be saved! For more information, watch ‘Lithops 101’ here.
