    Isn't the purpose of pumice/vermiculite/perlite to create aeration in the soil? If so, wouldn't pea gravel have the same effect without the floating problems?

    IMO it wouldn't work nearly as well. Perlite and pumice are both very porous where as pea gravel is not.

    Thanks for your help. Is there a certain species of Lithops that you can recommend for a beginner?
