From Bundt comes a story about Lithops in the Lifestyles Section.

Lithops als aufregende Zimmerpflanze

You might think I would run this through a translator so I could see what this article is really about. You never know! It could be about how to grow Lithops for fun and gardening, or maybe it’s for some nefarious purpose – the Germans are after all a lot closer to Ukraine than we in the US are!

I don’t know what that has to do with Ukraine, but it is a current topic of news, so maybe, you know, maybe.

Further into the article we get this.

Ursprünglich sind lebende Steine, die sich von Frühjahr bis Herbst in der Wachstumsphase befinden, in Südafrika beheimatet.

I still don’t know what that means, but it also seems like it’s probably something innocuous about growing Lithops.
