The strange appearance of Dinteranthus have made them very popular in succulent collections. They are similar in habit to Lithops but grows above ground. They are also called mimicry plants as they show a striking similarity to their background rocks and are difficult to detect when not in flower. The Dinteranthus have a pebbly look and are commonly known as pebble plants or living stones; each species is associated with one particular type of rock formation and occurs nowhere else. This camouflage also reduces the need for chemical defenses against herbivores.

Flowers: Solitary, yellow or whitish often tipped with reddish, filaments basally white erect, staminodes absent,

Lovely plant!

This little guy is so sweet with little freckles and a pinkish border on the leaves. I am trying to not water him while he is opening up to form new leaves. Love these healthy strong plants!
