Please help. I purchased some Lithops and assorted Succulents on line and brought Premium Bonsai Soil - Japanese Akadama, Lava Rock, Hyuga Pumice Mix. Will this be ok to use for soil for my Lithops and Succulent?
I also have a small amount of Succulent Cactus Potting Soil Fast Draining Wicking Mycorrhizae.
Should I add it? Please help i do not want to burn my succulent or kill my Lithops.

Thanks,

Blake

Welcome!

The bonsai mix sounds perfect. I have never heard of Succulent Cactus Potting Soil Fast Draining Wicking Mycorrhizae, so can't give you an opinion.

I would leave the plants that came potted alone. The lithops should be placed on barely damp bonsai soil in a bright light (not sun). Use shallow containers. Lithops are difficult to grow when they come potted. The biggest problem will be overwatering so err on the side of dryer.

The Haworthia is gorgeous! But, the color is caused by sun stress and will probably disappear.

If its ready to use for Bonzai, its ready to use for succulents.
