Lithops: Tiny Treasures of the Plant World

Lithops — a type of succulent plant commonly known as a ‘living stone plant’ for its rock-like appearance — are easy to take care of and grow.

Below the two flowering Lithops is a white seed pod that contains over 200, very tiny seeds, ready to be harvested. In the wild, some are for the birds, some for the wind, some for the insects, some for the collector, and some will stay where they land to germinate and grow.
