Lithops health?

DavidL.caJuly 4, 2014

My first batch of mesembs are still traveling across the continent, but saw some lithops at local nursery for the first time and couldn't resist! Is this a Lithops hallii v. hallii (C045) or Lithops julii ssp. fulleri v. fulleri (C121)?

The above pics were taken the day I got them, I'm going to repot these with my other lithops when they arrive, but do they look healthy? The old leaves seem to be almost completely gone

This is what they look like right now (after 4 days). Looks like there's a bit of new leaves coming through, is this normal, or the growing cycle is messed up by the bad growing environment before? And also there's a bit more of shriveling compared to few days ago, is it thirsty?

Lithops have quite a long tap root and it should be further down in the soil. From the picture I would suggest a deeper and one size bigger pot and your Lithops looks very healthy.

Thanks that's good to know. Yes I will be repotting it tomorrow along with some new lithops.
