At the beginning of this winter a single white flower appeared on a Lithops plant. Lithopses are small unique succulents that resemble stones. They are distributed in southern Africa in a rocky environment where they are well camouflaged. The plant’s requirements for growth are demanding and flowering is rare. Mitiku Teshale, the gardener of the succulent & cacti collection, nurtures these special plants along with many other species of succulents in the largest collection of its kind in Israel.
