Lithops fulleri is a gorgeous tiny desert plant that wants you to think it’s a rock. The plant comes in different colors and requires lots of sunlight and sparse watering. Mature plants divide and form a clump of spotted rocky plants.
Lithops fulleri is a succulent flowering plant native to the Republic of South Africa. Lithops fulleri is often considered a subspecies of a highly variable Lithops julii. The whole genus of Lithops is referred to as “living stones” that are a part of the Aizoaceae family. Almost all these plants are succulents and resemble stones.
This plant has a barrel-like stem and consists of two opposite leaves with a window to filter lighting. Every spring, Lithops fulleri splits and gives way to a new set of leaves, replacing the old ones. In fall, this species produces a sweet-scented daisy-looking white flower.
The flat leaves are highly variable in color. Some specimens are opaque, whitish-gray, and almost uniform colorwise. Others are opaque but strongly reticulate with thin, depressed brown spots that look like islands.
