i have lots of these,do not be tempted to over water or under water.they will rot if you over water .a good mix of grit and Jonn innes will surfice and they like air and not draughts.a sunny shelf will do but not to be trapped in winter between the curtains.they are called I think lithops not sure of their type.

It reminds me of when I was out riding on Mendip there use to be a herd of ruby red cows that use to graze there.They were such good escape artist and would hanging around the gates to see who leave it open.They once or twice escaped into the wood and were on the run for a month.We would come across them standing in the middle of the path with their young, gently chewing the cud and refusing to get out the way.on the whole they would ignore you and did no chasing unlike some herds.Ithink they are now confined to a secure feild...but for how long?

they like rain water,they do not take kindly to sitting in water or being over watered.they like to be misted (reminds them of the time they lived in trees in the jungle).they prefer bark and light plastic pot .they have to rest after flowering and dry right out with a occassional watering.mine do well in semi -shade not boiling hot window.its good you rescused it.mine were rescused ones and i have had good flowering from them.

do not cut back to hard as it will kill the lavender.clip back the straggly flower stems but not into the hard wood.
