There is no point. It is dead.baileysup wrote:Sweyn: I don't know about yours, because mine didn't have any mold on it. All of the leaves, except the two in the middle, were turning mushy on mine. When things turn mushy, they are rotten and could possibly spread to healthy parts of the plant. Therefore, I removed all the leaves that had mushy parts on them, in order to try and save the plant. I got lucky in the fact that the two leaves in the center had no rot, because if they did, the plant would have probably been a gonner. Is there any way you can post a pic of the plant? I think more people could help you if they could see exactly what kind of shape it's in.
You could. I was going to try applying water by dripping it. With a sprinkler head on a watering can, water can be made to drip slowly by tipping the can only very slightly. The amount of water applied can be strictly controlled with this method.baileysup wrote:I will try a spray bottle next time, and just mist the soil once a year with it.........LOL. Just kidding, but I will use a spray bottle, so as not to soak the soil as much.
Thanks for this. I'll remember that if I get another.Kats Eye wrote:to late to help, but next time you try this plant, mix the soil half with sand. and the idea about the spray bottle is right on. let the water feed through it, and not sit in it. indirect sunlight also.
Since starting this, I've seen Lithops and Pleiospilos next to each other, for sale in a garden centre. Both had labels and based on that, I think that my plant was a Pleiospilos.Shade wrote:That is definitely a Lithops or also called living stones plant.
