Q. baby toes flopping over

What can I do when my baby toes flop over? Perhaps I under watered it? I have it in my window during the winter in zone 8 Oregon and watered once every 3 or so weeks. Help!

Since overwatering is the most common mistake, I would suspect this is the case. Also, they must be planted in very well draining soil, to keep the roots from sitting in water. A shallow container works best.

Here is a link to proper care.

Let you plant soil dry, provide bright light and wait it out!

Q. Lithos baby toes

I want to maintain a specific garden for my living rocks. Can I add my baby toes in and give them the same care?

Unfortunately, mixing baby toes and living rocks probably isn't a good idea. Both have low water needs to begin with, and when they go dormant, they shouldn't be watered at all. The dormant period for these two plants are actually at opposite times of the year, so planting them together would result in one always being over- or under-watered.

Q. Baby’s toes

I recently ordered baby’s toes. When I get them, do I simply lift them out of the pot? Also, I was wondering how tall they grow.

I'm not sure of how your plants will be shipped to you.
I would refer to the seller. Check with the companies Customer Service department for more information.

Most plants also come with some care directions. Read any material providing with your plants.
