Q

I put my living stones in full sun on my new porch, and after a day they all when ghost white. Are they dead?

They were raised from seed indoors in a western facing window (6 months old at this point), but I added a grow light to them that was on for about 10 hours a day. When I moved to an apartment with an outdoor balcony I put them in full sun with south eastern exposure.

Answer

You moved living stones (Lithops) into direct sun and are experiencing some bleaching, turning them gray white. They may be ok. I would move them into partial sun and gradually move them into total sun over a few weeks. Plants growing under lamps need to be acclimatized to the outside gradually over a few weeks.
