I didn't know this one before: Flowering Stones from the botanical garden in Hamburg. Apparently they live natively in Southern Africa.

Today I found a very quaint, small flower shop in Lyon, and for some reason they happened to have Lithops on sale. And maybe I bought a few too many…

@daniel_bohrer they indeed come from the more arid areas of Southern Africa.

@anagnostes I assume it must be very miraculous seeing them in their dry state and then there's suddenly a flower as soon as the rain comes ^^

@daniel_bohrer visiting a botanical garden is always a good idea

@daniel_bohrer they are such unusual and fascinating plants. And a little rude :)

@eichkat3r to be fair, I didn't even know you could buy them, only knew them from botanical gardens
