Lithops sp. - Living Stone
Lithops is one of those plants you simply must see to believe. Nicknamed the "Living Stone" due to their uncanny resemblance to pebbles, these peculiar little succulents are native to southern Africa. These mimicry plants thrive in harsh, compacted soil and can take the full brunt of desert conditions, which means that as houseplants, they're great for small containers and require very little maintenance. As each plant is a little bit different, Lithops is must for your collection of arid oddballs.
• Light: Bright diffused to direct light; 4-5 hours of early sun is ideal
• Water: Let soil completely dry between waterings
• Considerations: Use a well-draining cactus/succulent soil, and select a planter with drainage. This plant needs very little water, especially in winter

A lovely plant that is perfect for this odd little planter I've had for ages. It arrived in top notch condition as all my Pistils plants have. I've always had a love of plants & Pistils Nursery lets me add to my 'collection' with beautiful plants at a reasonable cost.
Have always wanted a Lithops. Received a very healthy specimen. Has acclimated very well and growing happily.
Two weeks ago I received my well wrapped lithops in perfect shape. They are settling in beautifully and are a welcome addition to my collection. The "care card" is especially appreciated!
