Lithops, known as "living stones," play a clever trick. They grow and bloom in spring and fall but vanish in hot summer, hiding in the soil. These tiny succulents have round, flat leaves that look like stones in various colors.

Their trick? Thriving in tough places, like nature's camouflage experts, they symbolize adaptability and resilience.

Lithops are generally small succulent plants, with most species growing to be only about 0.5 to 2 inches (1.3 to 5 centimeters) in height and 1 to 2 inches (2.5 to 5 centimeters) in width.

 Light: Lithops thrive in bright, indirect sunlight. Provide them with at least 4-6 hours of indirect sunlight per day.

Watering: Water sparingly. Allow the soil to dry out completely between waterings, especially during their dormancy period, which typically occurs in the summer.

Humidity: They prefer low humidity levels, making them well-suited for arid or desert climates.

Temperature: Lithops prefer warm temperatures between 70°F to 80°F (21°C to 27°C) during the growing season. They can tolerate cooler temperatures but should be protected from frost.

Soil: Use a well-draining cactus or succulent mix to ensure proper drainage

Origin: Lithops are indigenous to arid regions of southern Africa, primarily found in countries such as South Africa, Namibia, Botswana, and Zimbabwe.They have adapted to survive in harsh desert conditions by storing water in their leaves and minimizing leaf surface exposure.

Toxicity: These succulent plants are generally considered safe to have around cats, dogs, and other common household pets. However, it's always a good practice to monitor your pets around any plants to prevent them from chewing or digging in the soil, as some animals may still show interest in these plants even if they are not toxic.
