You can probably recognize a cactus without a second glance. Even snake plants are becoming more and more common. But what about donkey tails? Or trachyandra (say that five times fast).

 Okay, they’re not technically “stones,” but lithops — also called pebble plants — mimic minerals quite easily.

Just be careful; “overwatering is the death of lithops,”.
