Commonly known as Living Stones, Lithops are small succulent plants native to the deserts of South Africa. Lithops resemble pebbles, require little water, and thrive in sandy, rocky soils. Plant them in small, decorative containers and enjoy their unusual shapes and textures inside your home. Includes two Lithops in 2” pots.

Lithops undergo a fascinating yearly growth cycle that necessitates a watering schedule tailored to their seasonal needs. Each year a new pair of leaves develop from the center of each plant with the previous season’s growth shriveling away. New growth occurs from fall to spring with a dormant period during the summer months, during which no water is needed. Water regularly in fall, stop watering in winter, then begin watering again in spring. Although the care of Lithops can seem complicated at first, it is quite intuitive once you’ve gotten to know these unusual succulents. You’ll be amazed as you watch them grow and transform before your eyes!
