Lithops are a genus of succulent plants native to southern Africa. They are known as pebble plants or living stones. Lithops grow naturally in sandstone-derived soils, often in rock formations and cliffs.
Lithops are among the most interesting and unusual succulent plants. They are among the few species of plants on earth with no visible leaves, roots or stem; they resemble rocks! Lithops were first discovered in 1913 by a farmer in South Africa and to this day they are still ‘undiscovered’ by many succulent enthusiasts.
