Introducing the Lithops schwantesii v. urikosensis, also known as Urikos Living Stone, which is a captivating succulent that belongs to the Lithops genus. Native to the arid regions of South Africa, specifically the Urikos area, it was first introduced to the botanical world by renowned plant explorer Friedrich Schwantes. 

Collecting different varieties of lithops can be such a fascinating and visually stunning hobby. These unique Lithops 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.  

Lithops schwantesii v. urikosensis is a type of dwarf succulent that distinguishes for the upper surface as very rugose, slightly grey-white with lines or dots. The Lithops plant has a typical morphology of two thick, fleshy windowed leaves separated by a crack, with a yellow flower emerging from the windowed part. The windowed part allows light into the inner leaf for photosynthesis. Older leaves typically last one year or two years and begin to shrivel in winter. Lithops schwantesii v. urikosensis can grow up to 4 inches and 2 inches wide. They have a compact and low-growing habit, forming clusters or clumps of individual plants. 

Lithops schwantesii v. urikosensis has evolved to survive in arid conditions by storing water in its leaves, enabling it to withstand periods of drought. They thrive in well-drained succulent soil and prefer bright, indirect sunlight. During the summer, this Lithops plant goes dormant, meaning it slows down its growth and conserves energy. It's an amazing adaptation that helps the plant survive in arid conditions. If you are living in USDA zones 9–11, you can grow them outdoors year-round. 

When it comes to flowering, Lithops schwantesii v. urikosensis produces delicate, daisy-like flowers that emerge from the cleft between the leaf pairings. The 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 burst of color to the plant's stony disguise. 

Propagation of Lithops schwantesii v. urikosensis can be done through seeds or by division. Patience is key when propagating and nurturing these captivating succulents. Remember, the Lithops schwantesii v. urikosensis is friendly to both humans and pets.
