Lithops (flowering stones or living stones) are true mimicry plants: their shape, size and color causes them to resemble small stones in their natural surroundings.
The plants blend in among the stones as a means of protection. Grazing animals which would otherwise eat them during periods of drought to obtain moisture usually overlook them.
Lithops are dwarf, succulent mimicry plants comprising two thick fleshy semi-translucent leaves resembling stones. These leaves fuse together at soil level where they taper down to a single carrot-like structure which eventually becomes the root. The flattened top part of the leaf is window-like. This window performs a very important function, allowing light to enter the plant body where the sun's rays activate cells which assist with photosynthesis. The upper surface of the plants are of a varied and translucent nature: some have speckled lines, are grooved, or even spotted. Lithops plants come in a variety of patterns and colours.
Our Lithops are planted in 7.5cm pots and are shipped in the soil.

Very happy with my purchase! Asked for varieties that I didn't already have and got some very healthy big plants. Happy with the service. Definitely would recommend.
Wow! How amazing! Very special plant for my garden!
I was pleasantly surprised by the speed of delivery of the Lithops that I ordered, they were delivered a day after my order. I had no idea how something as fragile as a plant would survive a courier, but they were perfectly packaged, and arrived completely unharmed.
I loved the selection that was chosen for me as well as the quality of the Lithops. Thank you Rusty Rose Nursery.
