Lithops are also called living rocks because they blend in so completely with the rocks and soil of their native Africa. They are not cactus, but are considered to be succulents and live in very arid regions. There are dozens of species and varieties and everyone loves them because they are so "cute." These little, almost invisible plants are one of the bonuses of going to the Desert Botanical Garden in Phoenix, Arizona.
