Four Years Later . . .

Last weekend we celebrated my daughter's second birthday. She has grown and developed so much. I cannot say the same for my four-year-old living stones (Lithops spp.), which I started from seed!

I'm pretty proud that they are still alive, after four years. They've grown a little bigger since their first appearance, and every year they develop a new pair of leaves and shed the old pair. So I know I'm doing something right. I just feel they should be bigger by now.

I suspect they need to be transplanted, and then maybe they'll get bigger. I'm just afraid to do it. Does anyone have any advice for me? Or, let us know something you've been nervous about doing with your plants or garden.
