Lithops stuck in old leaves? Here’s a quick fix! (Satisfying watch!)

In this video, I show you a ‘hidden’ Lithops that was stuck, struggling to emerge from a thickened old leaf pair that didn’t dry out enough to split.

Sometimes after a Lithops splits, the old leaves don’t fully dry out, especially in humid climates. This can make it harder for new growth to emerge, but we can help! You’ll need some water and a pair of tweezers, and a small pair of scissors can come in handy.
