The Living Stone plant originates in Africa and has one of the unique appearances among succulents. Shaped and colored like small stones, Living Stones are an extremely easy plant to identify and require little intervention to grow and stay healthy.
With over 140 variations of Lithops, the Rubra stands out for its beautiful, deep red or purple color. It is also a hardy plant that grows close to the ground and is able to survive seasonal droughts. This makes Rubra an excellent choice for first-time plant enthusiasts.
Rubra grows naturally in a desert climate and has its dormant period during the summer. When winter comes and brings rainfall to Africa, the Rubra grows two new club-shaped leaves. They also produce a tiny, daisy-like flower during the summer and fall.
