Description

This plant is easily recognized for the finely spotted top.

Family: Mesebrianthemaceae (Aizoaceae)

Scientific name: Lithops salicola
L. Bol. 1936 (Maculate form)

Origin: Orange Free State (SA)


Lithops salicola maculata C086 (Maculate form)

L. salicola is an easy species. Some people consider it one of the most tolerant of overwatering. It is not infrequent that seedlings grow up spontaneously in the potting container at the base of the mother plant.
This plant clumps up quickly  (Desmond Cole recorded a plant with more than 350 heads),  and they can get to be up to 25cm across (takes decades) and it is often seen in large mounds at shows because it is relatively easy to manage like that where many other species would quickly kill themselves.

Description: Truncate profile, obscurely translucent broad jagged or finely netted to almost uniform dark green dull, grey-green, brown or dark brown/violet, windows, flowers white in autumn.
