Living stones #200106

Living stones
Lithops spp

There are no known parents.

Living stones come from Southern Africa. The round shape is designed to reduce the evaporation surface; in addition its appearance protects the plant from predators. Each year a new pair of leaves is formed, the old pair of leaves provides the necessary moisture for it and then dries up.
