    Lithops Is A Genus Of Succulent Plants Native To Southern Africa
    "Lithos" Means "Stone" And "-Ops" Means "Face" In Ancient Greek; Therefore "Lithops" Means "Stone-Like"
    This Is A Very Good Description Of These Plants, Which Avoid Being Eaten By Blending In With Surrounding Rocks
    They Are Often Known As Pebble Plants Or Living Stones
    The Formation Of The Name From The Greek "-Ops" Means That Even A Single Plant Is Called A Lithops
    Individual Lithops Plants Consist Of One Or More Pairs Of Bulbous, Almost Fused Leaves Opposite To Each Other And Hardly Any Stem
    The Slit Between The Leaves Contains The Meristem And Produces Flowers And New Leaves
    The Leaves Of Lithops Are Mostly Buried Below The Surface Of The Soil, With A Partially Or Completely Translucent Top Surface Or Window Allowing Light To Enter The Interior Of The Leaves For Photosynthesis
    During Winter A New Leaf Pair, Or Occasionally More Than One, Grows Inside The Existing Fused Leaf Pair
    In Spring The Old Leaf Pair Parts To Reveal The New Leaves And The Old Leaves Will Then Dry Up
    Lithops Leaves May Shrink And Disappear Below Ground Level During Drought
    Lithops In Habitat Almost Never Have More Than One Leaf Pair Per Head, The Environment Is Just Too Arid To Support This
    Yellow Or White Flowers Emerge From The Fissure Between The Leaves After The New Leaf Pair Has Fully Matured, One Per Leaf Pair
    This Is Usually In Autumn, But Can Be Before The Summer Equinox In L
    Pseudotruncatella And After The Winter Equinox In L
    Optica
    The Flowers Are Often Sweetly Scented
    The Most Startling Adaptation Of Lithops Is The Colouring Of The Leaves
    The Leaves Are Not Green As In Almost All Higher Plants, But Various Shades Of Cream, Grey, And Brown, Patterned With Darker Windowed Areas, Dots, And Red Lines
    The Markings On The Top Surface Disguise The Plant In Its Surroundings
    Lithops Are Obligate Outcrossers And Require Pollination From A Separate Plant
    Like Most Mesembs, Lithops Fruit Is A Dry Capsule That Opens When It Becomes Wet; Some Seeds May Be Ejected By Falling Raindrops, And The Capsule Re-Closes When It Dries Out
    Capsules May Also Sometimes Detach And Be Distributed Intact, Or May Disintegrate After Several Years
    Lithops Occur Naturally Across Wide Areas Of Namibia And South Africa, As Well As Small Bordering Areas In Botswana And Possibly Angola, From Sea Level To High Mountains
    Nearly A Thousand Individual Populations Are Documented, Each Covering Just A Small Area Of Dry Grassland, Veld, Or Bare Rocky Ground
    Different Lithops Species Are Preferentially Found In Particular Environments, Usually Restricted To A Particular Type Of Rock
    Lithops Have Not Naturalised Outside This Region
    Rainfall In Lithops Habitats Ranges From Approximately 700Mm/Year To Near Zero
    Rainfall Patterns Range From Exclusively Summer Rain To Exclusively Winter Rain, With A Few Species Relying Almost Entirely On Dew Formation For Moisture
    Temperatures Are Usually Hot In Summer And Cool To Cold In Winter, But One Species Is Found Right At The Coast With Very Moderate Temperatures Year Round
    Lithops Are Popular Novelty House Plants And Many Specialist Succulent Growers Maintain Collections
    They Are Relatively Easy To Grow If Given Sufficient Sun And A Suitable Well Drained-Soil
    Normal Treatment In Mild Temperate Climates Is To Keep Them Completely Dry During Winter, Watering Only When The Old Leaves Have Dried Up And Been Replaced By A New Leaf Pair
    Watering Continues Through Autumn When The Plants Flower And Then Stopped For Winter
    The Best Results Are Obtained With Additional Heat Such As A Greenhouse
    In Hotter Climates Lithops Will Have A Summer Dormancy When They Should Be Kept Mostly Dry, And They May Require Some Water In Winter
    In Tropical Climates, Lithops Can Be Grown Primarily In Winter With A Long Summer Dormancy
    In All Conditions, Lithops Will Be Most Active And Need Most Water During Autumn And Each Species Will Flower At Approximately The Same Time
    Lithops Thrive Best In A Coarse, Well-Drained Substrate
    Any Soil That Retains Too Much Water Will Cause The Plants To Burst Their Skins As They Over-Expand
    Plants Grown In Strong Light Will Develop Hard Strongly Coloured Skins Which Are Resistant To Damage And Rot, Although Persistent Overwatering Will Still Be Fatal
    Excessive Heat Will Kill Potted Plants As They Cannot Cool Themselves By Transpiration And Rely On Staying Buried In Cool Soil Below The Surface
    Propagation Of Lithops Is By Seed Or Cuttings
    Cuttings Can Only Be Used To Produce New Plants After A Plant Has Naturally Divided To Form Multiple Heads, So Most Propagation Is By Seed
    Lithops Can Readily Be Pollinated By Hand , And Seed Will Be Ripe About 9 Months Later
    Seed Is Easy To Germinate, But The Seedlings Are Small And Vulnerable For The First Year Or Two
