  • 18. Lithops 
    is a genus of succulent plants native to southern Africa. "Lithos" means "stone" and "-ops" means "like" in Ancient Greek; therefore "Lithops" means "stone-like".
    This is a very good description of these plants, which avoid being eaten by blending in with surrounding rocks. They are often known as pebble plants or living stones. The formation of the name from the greek "-ops" means that even a single plant is called a Lithops.
    The structures emergingbetween the leaves are flower buds.

  • 29. Fenestraria / Baby’s Toes
    is a monotypic genus of succulent plants in the family Aizoaceae. The species is also called babies toes or window plant. On each leaf there is transparent window-like area at the top, it is for these window-like structures that the genus is named (Latin: fenestra). In the wild, the plant grows mostly buried by sand. The transparent tips are often above the sand and allow light into the leaves for photosynthesis.
    The plants are generally found growing in sandy or calciferous soils under low < 100 mm rainfall.  F. rhopalophylla is native to Namibia and Namaqualand in southern Africa.
