A Living Stone plant, I should have known a plant with a name like that would be completely beyond my capacity to care for. When I was first at the florist shop, the Living Stone plant sounded completely simple to care for. All I had to do was give it some sun and water it infrequently. Okay, maybe those weren’t the exact words of the store owner but it’s a pretty good summary of what I heard.
That was back in October 2014. It’s now the tail end of February 2015 and the Living Stone plant is still alive so that’s a good thing. Not much has happened to it which I have to say is a little on the boring side. I mean, unlike other plants where you can see tiny new green leaves forming or flowers blooming, the Living Stone plant doesn’t really give me any clues about how it’s doing.
So, what did I do?
Well, I may have over watered it JUST A TAD. It didn’t burst but it sure did get pretty swollen and puffy looking and sort of reminded me of that aloe vera plant that I destroyed. So, I stopped watering it for what seemed like forever and then something else happened.
The smaller Living Stone plant actually started to SPLIT! Take a good look at the photo below and you’ll see both the smaller plant with a split and the bigger plant still looking pretty plump.
Just when I was convinced I had all but killed yet another plant, I received a tiny little sign that maybe all was not yet lost. According to the florist that I had purchased this Living Stone plant from, the splitting is a good thing because it means my plant is about to grow a bit more. From the split, another Living Stone plant should grow.
Well, I can’t wait to see what happens next. I’ll keep you all posted!
