Assorted LithopsRegular price $15.99 Save $-15.99
Masters of disguise, living stones (Lithops spp.) get their name from their interesting rock like appearance. These cute, very low growing succulents also resemble little bums that are sneakily poking out of the soil, leaving the majority of the plant hidden underground.
In Autumn, flowers appear from the centre of the bums (like wonderful little farts) that bloom in the afternoon and close at night. After flowering new leaves burst through the centre of the existing leaves, growing in the opposite direction to the old leaves.
Lithops are intriguing to watch, feel and grow. So if you like big (plant) butts, order your Lithops today!
Lithops are specific with watering. They don’t like too much water and a light drink every two weeks from mid spring to summer will keep them happy.
If your Lithops are in flower, continue to give them a light drink until the flower starts to die off.
Once the flowers have started to shrivel, stop watering. Lithops like to be completely dry as they go through their growing stage.
Don’t be tempted to water the new leaves when they appear as this can stress out your little bums. Once the old leaves have completely dried up then you can commence watering again.
Position indoors in a well lit spot that receives up to 5-6 hours of morning to midday sun. Outdoors position so that they receive morning –midday sun and are protected from strong winds and afternoon sun.

Syngonium ErythrophyllumRegular price $350.00 Save $-350.00
Syngonium erythrophyllum is a small and delicate house-plant grown for its foliage. Its beautiful glossy leaves are dark to coppery-green in colour with reddish undersides. This is low maintenance and easy to propagate the plant. If you allow it to grow long it will become a dandy vine. This plant is beautiful enough to make a hanging basket or decorate any pot for the table or window of your house.
The water requirement of the plant is normal to high. You can water once or twice a week in summer. However, biweekly or once a week watering is enough for the plant in winter. Make sure that the upper 3 layers of the plant are dry before you water it again. Always avoid overwatering, as it is a gateway to many plant issues like fungus, discolouration, drooping and rot.
It is adaptable to a variety of sunlight conditions from partial shade to dappled and bright indirect light. It can also bear shade for a few days. However, avoid putting the plant in direct sunlight for long hours, as this may burn the plant.
It is resistant to a variety of humidity levels. Being native to the rainforests, it will grow bright and healthy foliage in humid environments.
In highly dry days, you can mist the plant slightly. However, it is better to mist in the morning or early afternoon. In addition, keeping the leaves wet for long is not advisable as it will lead to fungus and leaf rot.
The soil should be well-drained. Always make sure that there are drainage holes at the base of the pot.
