It is one of the nicest window-leaf succulents and very popular as the shape of the leaves is truly unique and when in flower the magenta petals with lighter centres are particularly showy. It is endemic to South Africa.
It is a dwarf rosette forming perennial succulents that grows almost completely embedded in the ground and it is just visible above the soil surface in their natural habitat. It is somehow similar looking to the Fenestraria rhopalophylla, but its leaves are more tubular.
Flowers: About 25 - 35 mm in diameter, solitary, borne on very short stalks or stalkless, bright magenta with a white or light yellow centre,
Blooming season: May
Remarks: During periods of drought the plant shrink in size as a result of moisture loss.

All 3 plants I ordered were shipped with obvious painstaking care and arrived beautifully in an outer wrap of white paper sealed with a pretty sticker. Just like a gift! The plants themselves are perfect and bigger than I anticipated. My Lithrops is now blooming after only a week! I can't wait to order more hopefully soon. Thank you!
