Small water rich nuggets, living like stones on the desert ground.Hiding in plain sight of thirsty predators. This is a genus of plants expert at camouflage.Pleiospilos belong to the same family of plants as the Lithops. The Aizoaceae. Camouflage is a technique they know well.Lithops are without a doubt very popular plants but fascinating though they are, they cannot rival a pleiospilos in full bloom. The huge autumn flowers of mature plants in autumn are a sight to see.Plants from the genus Pleiospilos are members of the Aizoaceae family.

A large group of succulent plants found mainly in Southern Africa. This group of plants for historic reasons are known amongst collectors as Mesembryanthemums or Mesembs. Other well known members of this family to UK growers might include Lithops, Faucaria and Conophytum.
