This little gem-like succulent is charming and intriguing. On the surface, the small, flattened, fleshy head is actually two modified leaves. Its leaves are first welded, then split to allow the passage of a delicate little flower. The surface of the leaves has attractive mottling in different colors. Several colors are available to match your decor. The hues vary between cool colors like green, blue, purple and gray. There are also warm colors such as brown, red, orange and yellow . During its dormant period, between October and April, we completely stop watering it. The plant will shrivel up and burrow into the ground. Don't worry, this step is essential to its survival! Coming out of its rest, a new lithops appears from the center of the old.
