Lapidaria margaretae is in the catagory of "Living Stone", like many "Living Stones" they appreciate bright, hot-hot-hot sun with some water during summer. We have success growing ours on the top shelf in the greenhouse, with zero water in winter. Water starts again when flower buds appear. The sun is this plant's best friend. Single yellow, daisy-like flower per rosette in spring.
