Lithops

£10.99

Lithops, commonly known as “living stones” or “pebble plants,” are a fascinating group of succulent plants known for their mimicry of stones or pebbles as a survival strategy. These quirky little succulents are native to southern Africa and get their name from their stony appearance. Lithops have thick, rounded, pebble-like leaves that blend right into a rocky landscape. The tops of the leaves are often etched with mesmerizing leaf-like markings in grays, greens, and browns that help them camouflage in their natural habitat. When lithops bloom, they produce daisy-like flowers that seem to magically emerge from the gravelly leaves. Their compact size, slow-growing and easy to care for makes them perfect for desktops and small spaces.

We use 100% recyclable packaging, using FSC Certified cardboard boxes but if you are happy to have your order packaged in pre-used packaging, please tick this box.

Plant care

Pot size: 9cm - Height (including pot): 12cm

Living stones prefer full sun year-round, meaning at least six hours of sunlight on most days. When growing these succulents indoors, place them by your brightest window (south-facing exposure is best). Insufficient light can cause elongated leaves and poor leaf colouring.

Do not water in summer or over the winter when the plant is dormant. Then drench the soil, allowing it to dry our completely before watering again--about 1-2 weeks. Once the new leaves begin forming in the spring, water whenever the soil dries out.

Living stones tolerate heat well, and they can survive temperatures as low as 10°C.

Humidity usually is not an issue with this plant.

Lithops are considered non-toxic to humans and pets.
