Lithops - Living Stones: These slow-growing mesembs from South Africa are adapted to very hot, dry environments. Only the very tops of the leaves are visible aboveground and even these are well-camouflaged in a wide variety of colors and patterns to blend in with the surrounding stones. They need very little water and a well-draining soil in order to prevent their fleshy leaves from exploding. Water lightly only during the fall and spring growing seasons and keep in a well-draining mineral soil. Yellow or white flowers usually emerge in autumn followed by a new, inner pair of leaves. Do not water again until spring when the old, outer leaves have completely shriveled into paper-thin sheets.

Tender soft succulent. Not frost tolerant.
