Lithops aucampiae has two thick, fleshy leaves with a large leaf window, each of which allows light into the plant's underground part, separated by a crack through which the flower emerges. These pairs of leaves, known as "leaves of the body," come in a variety of colors, ranging from pale green to shades of brown and reddish hues. The leaf surfaces are often textured, adding to their rock-like appearance. Lithops aucampiae can grow up to 3 inches tall and 2 inches wide. They have a compact and low-growing habit, forming clumps or clusters of individual plants. 

When it comes to flowering, Lithops aucampiae produces dainty, daisy-like flowers that emerge from the cleft between the leaf pairings. The Lithops flowers can vary in color, ranging from shades of white, yellow, and even pink. The blooming period usually occurs in late summer or early autumn, adding a delightful splash of color to the plant's rocky disguise. 

Lithops aucampiae is native to the Namaqualand region of South Africa, which is characterized by its harsh desert climate. This plant has adapted to survive in arid conditions by storing water in its leaves, allowing it to withstand periods of drought. Lithops grow in annual cycles, with leaf pairs producing new ones to replace old ones. When it comes to Lithops aucampiae care, watering is crucial, keeping Lithops dry from flowering until old leaf pairs are fully replaced as the old ones shrivel away. Lithops aucampiae, like Lithops julii, Lithops hookeri, and Lithops salicola, is extremely tolerant of occasional inappropriate watering, making it simple to grow. It prefers well-draining soil and thrives in bright, indirect sunlight. You can grow your lithops plant outdoors in USDA zones 10–11 year-round.
