Living pebbles: Adorable heart-shaped succulents

Succulents are one of the easiest kinds of plants to care for, making it a favorite among beginner gardeners. It also has distinct shapes and sizes which add to its appeal. 

One eye-catching succulent variety is the Conophytum bilobum, or living pebbles, which has tiny, plump, heart-shaped leaves. Although native to South Africa, this succulent can be grown as a houseplant elsewhere. 

Bearing similarities to sweetheart hoya, another heart-shaped succulent, the living pebbles are easy to grow because it only requires soil, good drainage, sunlight, and watering every now and then. 

To grow living pebbles, plant them in a cactus or succulent soil mix with good drainage properties; also make sure that the container has a drainage hole. Water only when the soil feels dry to the touch. Direct sunlight is also a requirement to grow living pebbles. 

Proper care for a living pebble will result in it sprouting adorable heart-shaped leaves, and tiny, yellow blooms.
