Cutest Succulents: Living Stones (Lithops)

A touch of character with an element of surprise is what you can expect from living stones. These little succulents known as Lithops plants are small and absolutely adorable. Lithops is both a singular and a plural, so don’t go searching for a Lithop if you want one.

Typically, they grow to about an inch above the surface of the soil. The rest of the plant is underground. They appear unassuming, often split into a cloven shape. In fact, if you do not know what to look for, they will be easy to miss. Living stones have two leaves that are thick and padded. They are the masters of camouflage which is how they have earned their name. Numerous colors, spots, and little stripes can be found on the upper surface of the leaves. There are at least 145 different types to choose from. Their resemblance to stones is uncanny.

These cute succulents originate from South African deserts, where they can easily grow amidst sand and rocks. They do best in areas where the weather is exceptionally hot and needs very little water.

Cutest Succulents Living Stones Lithops
Surprising Item @maceplants

Unique Features of The Living Stones

It would be a challenge for anyone to kill this plant, even if one does not have a green thumb. It all comes down to nutrients and water, which this plant barely requires. Very little is lost from the surface area of this succulent as most of it is underground. Having only two leaves also minimizes the surface area of the plant. In fact, some Lithops can grow and stay alive with fog or mist being the primary source of moisture.

The Lithops have no stem, and the leaves are like storage tanks for the plant. It is the leaves that ensure that the plant can stay without water for months. When experiencing a drought, these plants are able to stay alive by shriveling and shrinking below the soil level. When the succulent seeds, these seeds can remain viable for months since they need minimal moisture.

Growing Your Cute Succulents

The sandier the soil, the better if you want your Lithops to thrive. These plants are light lovers. Bright sunlight is ideal. Full-on exposure won’t damage them, though a little shade in the afternoon is advised. If you want to keep them indoors, you should make sure they are close to a south-facing window so that they can get the most light. Four to five hours of direct sunlight is what they need each day.

If you start out with your Living Stone succulent indoors, you should not transplant it to grow outdoors later. This is because being indoors makes them lose resistance to bright light. If you move them outdoors, the leaves of these cute succulents will burn, and they will die. During the winter, ensuring that these plants have adequate access to light should be a priority.

Check out this guide on “How to Successfully Grow Indoor Succulents” for a guide on growing your Living Stones indoors.

The most surprising and endearing feature of this plant is its flower. Flowering happens in autumn or in early winter. The flowers are in various colors including pale orange, yellow and white. They resemble daisies, looking like small clusters of perfect bouquets on the ground. The unique feature of these flowers, they are only open in the afternoon when it is sunny and hot. When it gets cooler, towards the late afternoon going into the evening, the flowers close up. With some varieties of these cute succulents, the flowers are scented. They come out from the space between the two leaves.

Once flowering has completed, a new phase of life begins for these succulents. They go through dormancy, where the old leaves are reabsorbed, and new leaves develop. In some cases, a new cluster will appear.

Keeping Living Stones

When keeping them, ensuring that the conditions are as close as possible to their natural environment is what you should aim for.

Succulents typically require minimal watering, and only when their soil has dried out. These succulents require even less water. Between the fall and spring, they should not be watered at all as this is when they are dormant. They have a yearly cycle of growth.

This is one succulent that can stay within a family for generations, living up to 50 years if they are grown outdoors in ideal conditions. When indoors, they can be grown in the same pot for up to 20 years.

Elephant Bush Succulent- Portulacaria Afra

Elephant Bush is opulent and larger than life. Also known as the Portulacaria Afra, this is a succulent that grows into a bush. It is a part of the Didiereaceae family. Its unique feature is in its ability to grow to amazing heights. It has stems that appear woody in nature with small leaves all along with them. These stems are also bendy, making these plants ideal for using in hanging baskets.

Lots of space is needed for the portulacaria afra succulent, especially if you want it to achieve its maximum growth. It can grow up to 12ft tall. Wondering how this succulent got the name Elephant Bush? It had little to do with its ability to reach such great heights. In its native South Africa, this plant’s leaves have been food for elephants. In the wild, it can exceed the height of 12ft, with some being recorded as reaching even 20ft. It is found in places that are rocky and dry, on slopes.

Not to worry, when growing it indoors, it only grows a few feet tall. It is also non-toxic to people and animals. Since it is flexible in look and feel, being able to fit a hanging basket, it is an ideal ornamental plant.

Elephant Bush - Portulacaria Afra
One of The Most Famous Indoor Succulent @dwarfjadebonsai

Features of The Elephant Bush

The main features of the Elephant Bush are the stems and the leaves. The stems are dark brown in color, with the leaves being small and green.

In the wild, this plant blooms with flowers in clusters. These are normally a range of colors, including white, purple and pink. However, when cultivated, it is exceptionally rare for Elephant Bush to flower. The only way to achieve this result is to ensure that the conditions are exactly the same as its native habitat.

Elephant Bush plants are lovers of light, requiring some extra thought if they are to be kept indoors. They need to be kept close to the windows so that they can benefit from both light and warmth. This is best achieved with a south-facing window where it can get at least six hours of light each day.

When keeping this plant, it is advised that you leave it in one location. It can get damaged when moving from indoors to outdoors. This is because of exposure to direct sunlight. When it is not used to this exposure, the leaves can quickly burn outdoors. This plant is able to survive in cold temperatures since it is tolerant to frost. However, in the event of snow, you may want to move your plant indoors.

Propagating Your Elephant Bush Succulents

To grow your own Elephant Bush, propagation can give excellent results. Starting out in the spring or early summer will ensure excellent results.

All you need to do is plant a cutting that has been dried out and calloused. The soil should be moist. Once planted, in a few weeks, a new Elephant Bush will have taken root and the leaves bloom.

The weather where you are propagating will influence how you water your plant. If the area is humid, then use minimal water. If the plant is not exposed to constant and consistent sunlight, then you can use less water as well. Also, be aware of rain so that if it does rain while you are propagating, you resist watering your plant as this could affect the roots causing rot.

Want more info on root rot on succulents? Check out our piece “What is Root Rot & How Do You Fix it?” and learn techniques on how to fix this problem.

Quick Tips to a Thriving Elephant Bush

Keeping your Elephant Bush in the best possible health requires the following:

  • Consistent exposure to sunlight, with partial shade for protection
  • Use a stake to help keep the plant stable as it grows bigger
  • Sandy soil with extra perlite will help elevate drainage
  • Potted Elephant Bush should be repotted every two years

If you are starting out with caring for succulents, then this is an ideal plant for you to keep. It requires minimal care and can add character to a succulent garden, both indoors and outdoors.

Nothing says ‘sculptural masterpiece’ more than a cactus. But why stop there? How about a cactus growing on a cactus?

The Pig’s Ear Succulent– Cotyledon orbiculata

Succulents are these plants everyone is scrambling to get isn’t always true. Some are on regulations’ blacklists meaning they have a war being wedged against them.

Pig’s ear is one such succulent.

Make no mistake: it’s still a highly-regarded aesthetic addition amongst plant lovers. But not in New Zealand. It features on the National Pest Plant Accord, meaning it cannot be sold nor commercially propagated.

Maybe sad but it shouldn’t worry you – that’s if you’re not in New Zealand. You can still add the pig’s ear succulent to your collection. Want to know more about it?

Here, have at it.

Cotyledon Orbiculata - the Pig’s Ear
Succulent growing in a planter @elianasucculents

Caring for Pig’s Ear

This succulent has little care demands and can thrive well with minimal attention.

Are you looking to grow the pig’s ear succulent? Then the following care regimen will be particularly essential in raising a healthy plant.

Watering

Remember we’re talking about a succulent here – and thrives in mostly dry conditions in the wild. So the occasional watering will serve the plant just fine.

As a rule, always hold back on giving your pig’s ear a drink until the soil has dried out. This can take anywhere from 1-2 weeks – depends on where you live.

Be thorough with the watering whenever you do it. During your sessions, only stop when the water flows out through the bottom of the container.

Be sure to also check out “What to Do When You Underwater Succulents?” for more tips on watering.

The ideal climate for pig’s ear

C. orbiculata is highly drought resistant. So it’s pretty easy to grow it as an outdoor plant in USDA hardiness zones 9b to 12. These are warm areas for a more significant part.

In colder areas, where temperatures can drop to as low as 30o F, it’s better to grow them indoors. In these areas, you can still grow them outside, but then it must be in containers. You can then bring them inside when the cold starts biting. 

Potting mix

Plant your pig’s ear cactus in soil that drains out fast enough. Remember this is a desert dweller where the land is dry most of the time. And the plant has adapted accordingly to survive this.

So a soggy medium will do more harm than good even when your watering sessions are far in between.

Learn how to make your own succulent soil in “How to Make Your own Succulent Soil at Home

Lighting

This hardy beauty is a sunlight lover. You’ll do it – and yourself – a huge favor by allowing it several hours in the sun per day.

For indoors, place it near a sunlit window. If you’re growing it outdoors, make sure it’s set at a well-lit spot with the possibility of a partial shade sometime during the day; the summer heat can get overwhelming.

Be sure to also read “Are Grow Lights Bad for My Succulents” to see if using grow lights could damage your succulents.

Fertilization

Fertilization should be once every year, and that is in late spring or early summer. Feed your pig’s ear with a water-soluble houseplant fertilizer containing equal parts nitrogen, phosphorus, and potassium (10-10-10).

Just dissolve a teaspoonful of the fertilizer in a gallon of water, and you’ll be set.

Apply the fertilizer gently in a ring to avoid splashing it on the leaves.

Pruning

Pruning will mainly entail cutting off shriveled blooms. When left on, they’re going to clamp down on the growth of your plant considerably.

All you need is a pair of sharp scissors. Make sure to cut off as much of the stalk as possible.

Make sure to also read “Why Succulents Grow Tall and What to Do About it” for more on controlling the shape and size of your succulent.

Cotyledon Orbiculata - the Pig’s Ear
Potted succulent placed outdoors @beerded_designs

Repotting pig’s ear

Your plant will need a new and bigger container a few years down the line. You should start making arrangements as soon as it starts to easily tip over.

As usual, the pot shouldn’t be too huge – just enough space for the potting soil and root growth. Typically, an inch wider than the previous one is acceptable.

Repotting this succulent during spring when it’s actively growing.

Cotyledon Orbiculata - the Pig’s Ear
A flowering succulent @flori_fairy

Propagating pig’s ear

Propagation of the pig’s ear is through stem cuttings.

Pick out a tall enough stem – 5 cm and above – with a few nodes on it (even a single one will do). Pluck off the stem and dip it in a rooting hormone (of course with the “injured” part in).

Next up is to prepare a paper towel sheet that you’ll use to wrap the stem. Wet the paper towel using warm water and wring it enough to leave it just damp.

Wrap the towel around your stem and set it up on a plate in a sunny spot. Make a point of changing the sheet often adhering to the above process of preparing another one. Be sure also to leave out the nodes when you wrap your stem.

The stem will be ready for potting in about four weeks – this is the period it’ll take to root.

Pig’s ear pests and problems

Snails and slugs are the most common problems you’ll encounter. These are brought about by under growths and debris.

And they’re easily noticeable by the all-familiar slimy lines they leave behind. Another indicator of their presence is small holes in the leaves of your plant.

In that case, you’ll need to set up snail traps to deal with these slimy beings. Also, make a point of making the area around your plant clear.

More than just an ornamental plant – the medicinal uses of pig’s ear

While it’s widely grown for aesthetics, C. orbiculata is known to alleviate several medical conditions. This is fairly common specifically in South Africa, its native home.

And it’s the leaves that come in handy for this purpose.

First off, they can be chewed as a vermifuge which rids the body of parasitic worms for the individuals with an infestation. Secondly, they are applied to the skin in the case of any conditions such as corns and warts.

The leaves can also sometimes be heated and be used in the process of soothing boils and other swellings.

Finally, juice extracts from the leaves are used to combat epilepsy.

Pig’s ear toxicity

The pig’s ear’s leaves are an asset for us humans, as per the above outlined medicinal uses.

But as a pet owner, the same leaves might turn out to be a nightmare for your pets if you’re not careful. They are harmful to a good deal of pets – dogs, horses, sheep, etc.

So it pays to put measures into place if you want a peaceful co-existence between this succulent and your animal friends.
