Introducing the Lithops olivacea, also known as the Olive Green Living Stone. Native to South Africa, these little wonders are known for their striking resemblance to stones or pebbles, which helps them blend seamlessly into their natural desert habitats. 

Lithops olivacea features a compact, low-growing habit with pairs of leaves that are fused together at the base. The leaves have a smooth texture or olive-green windows, hence the species name "olivacea."

Collecting different varieties of lithops can be such a fascinating and visually stunning hobby. These unique succulents, commonly known as "living stones," come in a wide range of shapes, colors, and patterns. When you gather a diverse assortment of lithops and place them together, it creates a mesmerizing display that resembles a collection of various rocks. If you are interested in getting multiple types of lithops then this Multiple lithops plant cluster is a great choice.  

With time, the Lithops olivacea plant produces enormous clumps of up to thirty bodies and can grow up to 11 inches tall. The thick, fleshy leaves have gray sides that are often colored greenish-yellow or reddish, and olive-green or greyish-green windows with a few softer or almost absent dots. The tops of the leaves have a slightly convex shape, mimicking the smooth surface of a stone. This adaptation allows the plant to camouflage itself, protecting it from herbivores and harsh environmental conditions. 

When it comes to flowering, Lithops olivacea produces dainty, daisy-like flowers that emerge from the center cleft between the leaves during late summer and early fall. The flowers can vary in color, ranging from shades of yellow to white or even pink. Though the flowers are small, they add a delightful touch to the plant's overall appearance. 

Taking care of Lithops olivacea is easy. Make sure this winter-growing plant gets plenty of bright, indirect sunlight for at least 4 to 5 hours a day. When it comes to watering, be careful not to overdo your Lithops plant. Let the soil dry out completely between waterings, especially during its dormant periods in the summer. Use a well-draining soil mix, and keep the humidity levels low. In terms of temperature, aim for a warm indoor environment during the day and slightly cooler temperatures at night. You can grow outdoors in USDA zones 10–11. You can fertilize lightly once a year during the growing season in the spring. 

Propagation of Lithops olivacea can be done through seeds or by division. However, it's important to note that Lithops can be a bit challenging to propagate, requiring specific conditions to successfully germinate and grow. Patience and attention to detail are key when attempting to propagate these fascinating plants.
