An interesting plant, similar to Lithops and other livings stones, this succulent is one of my favorites. It comes from very arid regions in the wild and has adapted to its very dry environment by storing water and mimicing local rocks.

Like Lithops, this is one of the plants that I've killed a few times when I was growing up for one very simple reason, water. These plants do not like being watered!!! I try to only water it four times a year, though it can go a year without being watered. Other than that, I grow it in a shallow bonsai pot in cacti mix on a south facing windowsill and try to ignore it.
