    Living stones (Lithops spp.), also known as pebble plants, are unusual little succulents that have evolved to look like the pebbles and rocks that litter their native habitats in Africa. 

    Light: Living stones prefer full sun year-round, meaning at least six hours of sunlight on most days. When growing them indoors, place them by your brightest window, with a southern or eastern exposure being preferable. Insufficient light can cause elongated leaves and poor leaf coloring.

    Water: Living stones must be watered on a seasonal schedule that mimics the rainfall they would get in their natural habitat. Don’t water over the winter when the plant is dormant. Then, once the new leaves begin forming in the spring, water whenever the soil dries out just enough that the soil becomes slightly moist. Pause watering again in the summer during the other dormant period. But resume watering in the fall just before the plant is ready to flower. If the leaves start to completely shrivel up while the plant is dormant, you can give it a very small amount of water to plump them up again.

    Toxicity: Lithops are non-toxic to humans or pets.
