ABOUT THE PLANT

Lithops, commonly known as "living stones," are a unique and fascinating group of succulent plants native to the arid regions of southern Africa. They are renowned for their striking mimicry of stones or pebbles, which helps them blend in with their natural surroundings and avoid herbivores. Here are some key details about Lithops:

Appearance:

Lithops are small, low-growing plants that consist of pairs of thick, fleshy leaves fused together, forming a cleft at the top where the flower emerges. The top surface of these leaves is often patterned or textured to resemble the appearance of stones, which serves as camouflage. Some popular species of Lithops include Lithops aucampiae, Lithops lesliei, and Lithops schwantesii.

Growing Conditions:

Lithops thrive in arid and semi-arid environments and are adapted to withstand extreme drought. They are typically found in rocky, sandy soils with good drainage. In cultivation, they require well-draining soil, plenty of sunlight, and infrequent watering to mimic their natural habitat.

Care and Maintenance:

To care for Lithops, it's essential to provide them with the right growing conditions. They need bright, direct sunlight for several hours a day, especially during their active growing season in spring and autumn. Watering should be minimal, with the soil allowed to dry out completely between waterings. Overwatering can lead to rot, which is a common issue with these plants. Lithops go through a dormant period in summer when they should be kept dry.
