Two Lithops Questions
I rescued these little guys a few days ago from a dying succulent display at Walgreens. Everything appeared to be suffering from lack of sunshine, and from alternating over- and under-watering in their tiny, 1-inch pots.
My questions are:
#1. Are the wrinkles/indentations on the shorter one typical of shrivelling from lack of water, or might I have done that with the rough lava stone I'd been using for top dressing? When I removed it today, I saw the wrinkles. I hadn't noticed it intimately then. Their roots are not rotted. The soil they were in was absolutely dry, and I haven't watered them, but now I think maybe I should?
#2. Are they the same, or two different species? They have different patterns in their "windows," and they are different colors.
BTW, I already know I need to move them into a deeper pot, but any tips on size, type, etc. would be welcome.
