Comes with 1 Lithop.
Lithops are part of the ice plant family Aizoaceae. With over 400 identified species, this makes for a great succulent to collect. They come in different colors, textures and shapes. They bloom bright daisy like flowers in their growing season. Lithops are also known as pebble plants and living stones. They naturally blend in with their surrounds to avoid being eaten by hungry or thirsty desert creatures. Lithops create small clusters of plants that look great in shallow bowls or planters and with the pairing of actual stones as a top dress, gives them their genuine 'stone face' look. A unique plant to add to your succulent collection.

The living stones are one of the fascinating succulents I've seen and wanted to include it into my life and home. Came very healthy and no damage. The roots are extremely healthy so it will hopefully thrive. Love buying from Succy Crafts.
I've been looking for lithops for some time and was excited to pick this up through Succy Crafts. I can't wait to see the blossom.
So far so good !
I love all my new succulents!! They arrived a bit wilted but even the cuttings looked good in a day - planted and watered. Very happy with the order!!!
My Lithops arrived in perfect condition and so beautiful! Arrival time was fast and I couldn't be happier.I ordered two of the two in a pack. Will order more from this company. FIVE STARS!!!
It’s adorable but I figured there would be a few of them like in the picture but it was only one. Still love it though
