Q.Will These Lithops Survive?
Hi I bought some lithops and thought one was going moldy and dying (another of the same batch did already), so I stupidly pulled it out worrying that the fungus would spread to the others, the dying lithop came away with a little tug but there were two tiny baby inside. I realize now it was just reproducing as part of it;s normal lifecycle, shoot. My question is, will the little babies survive? is there anything I can do to help them? they are only about a centimeter tall 🙁
