Product Description

Lithops julii ssp. fulleri v. fulleri C171 is a specific variation of Lithops julii, a species of succulent plant native to Southern Africa. Here's a description of this variation:

  • Appearance: Like all Lithops species, Lithops julii ssp. fulleri v. fulleri C 171 has a distinctive appearance resembling small stones or pebbles. Each individual plant consists of a pair of fleshy, leaf-like structures that are fused together at their bases, forming a cleft between them. This cleft houses the plant's flower, which emerges during the blooming season.

  • Coloration: The coloration of Lithops julii ssp. fulleri v. fulleri C 171 can vary, but it typically features shades of green, grey, brown, and sometimes reddish tones. The colors often mimic the surrounding soil or rocks, providing camouflage against predators and harsh environmental conditions.

  • Size: Generally, Lithops julii ssp. fulleri v. fulleri C 171 remains small in size, with individual plants typically reaching around 2-3 centimeters in diameter.

  • Habitat: This variation of Lithops julii is found in the Northern Cape province of South Africa, approximately 60 kilometers west of Upington. Its natural habitat likely consists of arid, rocky regions with well-draining soil.


Botanical family: Aizoaceae

Botanical genus: Lithops

Botanical species: julii ssp. fulleri v. fulleri C171


Cultivating Lithops, also known as living stones, requires attention to their specific needs. Here are some tips for successfully growing Lithops:

  • Well-Draining Soil: Lithops need soil that drains well to prevent waterlogging, which can lead to root rot. A mixture of potting soil, sand, and perlite or pumice works well. Ensure the container has drainage holes.
  1. Minimal Watering: Lithops are adapted to arid conditions and are highly drought-tolerant. Water sparingly, allowing the soil to dry out completely between waterings. During their active growing season in spring and autumn, water lightly. Reduce watering in winter when they are dormant.
  • Sunlight: Lithops require plenty of sunlight to thrive. Place them in a location where they receive at least 4-6 hours of direct sunlight per day. A south-facing windowsill or a sunny spot outdoors is ideal.
  • Temperature: Lithops prefer temperatures between 70-80°F (21-27°C) during the growing season. They can tolerate cooler temperatures in winter but should be protected from frost.
  • Pot Size: Use shallow pots or containers with good drainage. Lithops have a shallow root system, and they prefer to be slightly pot-bound. Planting them in a shallow container helps mimic their natural habitat.
  • Protect from Excess Moisture: Avoid overhead watering, as water on the leaves can lead to rot. Water directly into the soil around the plants. Also, ensure good air circulation around the plants to prevent humidity buildup.
  • Fertilization: Lithops have minimal nutrient requirements. Fertilize sparingly, if at all, during the growing season with a diluted, balanced fertilizer. Avoid fertilizing during dormancy.
  • Dormancy: Lithops go through a period of dormancy in winter when they rest and do not require much water. During this time, reduce watering significantly to prevent rot. Resume regular watering when new growth emerges in spring.
  • Handling: Avoid touching or disturbing Lithops unnecessarily, as they are sensitive to handling. Their outer layers are delicate and can be easily damaged.
  • Propagation: Lithops can be propagated from seeds or by division. When dividing, do so carefully to avoid damaging the roots. Allow the offsets to callous for a few days before planting them in well-draining soil.
