Stone Plant Overview

Lithops species are probably amongst the most well-camouflaged and cryptic plants in the world. Their common name, stone plant, is particularly apt, as they are often extremely difficult to spot when they are growing nested amongst the gravel in their natural habitat. They are bizarre little plants that have a strange but fascinating beauty in their coloration and form that captures the attention of anyone who stumbles across them. Their ease of growth makes them popular pot plants and, if well-cared for, will make lifelong companions.
