Succulent that looks like pebbles.
Name this plant please!
My daughter has taken an interest in succulents which she grows indoors. She has asked me to look out for one that looks like stones but I can't find such a thing in the local garden centres.
Thank you



Quite simply it is called the Pebble Plant - 'Lithops karasmontana'. A nice, easy plant to grow.

There are lots of different kinds of Lithops. They have pretty flowers :)

Also Split Rock (Pleiospilos), and Window Plant (Fenestraria).

Don't think those names are used in the UK Tug.

Well, whatever the common name, those genera have many members that imitate rocks in their native habitat. Some species of Haworthia, such as H. pygmaea also imitate stones, and a few cacti make a good imitation, too, such as Ariocarpus species.
