Lithops - (commonly called "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. Even experts in the field sometimes have difficulty locating plants for study because of this unusual deceptive camouflage.

2- Lithops _ are truly fascinating little plants. Lithops are perfect for people to grow who don’t have a lot of space because they are small and can grow really well in a pot on the windowsill. Lithops should be cared for like other succulents by watering sparingly during winter and increasing water during the summer months. Placing various pebbles and semi-precious stones around the plants in a pot can really bring out the colours of the plant and add interest.

Lithops Cactus (10 Seeds)

Lithops Succulent (10 Seeds)

What a great idea/gift! I would fill it with all black (purple), all orange or all red succulents...perhaps a mixture of all three.

Crazy looking but intriguing plant. Commonly known as the Saucer plant or Dinner plate plant~Aeonium Tabulaeforme is a strange and wonderful stemless , ground hugging, rosette from the Canary Islands. The flower stems erect, arise from the middle of the rosette and reaches about a 1-1 1/2 inch tall. It produces many small yellow flowers. The Aeonium live about 3 years and die after blooming.
