Ophthalmophyllum

Ophthalmophyllum

Its name derives from Greek and literally means "leaf with an eye", referring to the main feature of these small succulents, similar to living stones: in the center, between the two extremely fleshy leaves, there is a small "window" similar to an eye, which serves the plant to absorb sunlight and distribute it to the depth of the stem, as long as it often remains underground to protect itself from excessive heat or cold. It is surprising to see, how these small "miracles of nature" know, how to survive even the most extreme weather conditions, with such important and, at the same time, decorative stratagems!
