Lithops Marmorata Klip Pebble Plant is an intriguing succulent originating from the Northern Cape region of South Africa where it grows in rock crevices and gravelly soils. Unfortunately, due to aggressive harvesting by succulent collectors, Lithops Marmorata Klip Pebble Plant, also known as the Living Stones, is rarely found in its native habitat. Lithops Marmorata Klip Pebble Plant is highly sought after because of its intriguing rock like resemblance, with the emerging flowers (when clumped together) resembling a split rock. This rare cultivar of lithops is particular is highly sought after as it has a intricately marbled texture, particularly as plants start clumping. As the plants mature, they produce a finely-cut and scented, a white daisy like flower (not dissimilar to a Livingstone Daisy) which can be 4-5cm in diameter, which is a pretty impressive flower to plant size ratio. Lithops Marmorata Klip Pebble Plant is ideally grown in pots with a free draining mix high in sand, but will also grow in rockeries and a wide range of gardens, and like all succulents is very drought tolerant, making it a favourite for pots and sun-drenched garden beds. The young foliage is generally green to bronze, but can take on a more silver or bronze tone as they mature.
