No, not a mistake at all. Those are Lithops. As they grow, the outside leaves shrivel away and are absorbed by the new leaves coming out the middle. Basically, this is how it grows and you should not water it until those outside leaves are completely gone.

A mimicry plant, or called a living stone (Lithops) shouldn't look like that. Where did you get it ?

Kind of funny in a way. A mind of there own is to be imagined.

Lithops marmorata? Not sure of the name but I do see these for sale quite often at the local non big box nurseries, so they must be easy to propagate. Instead of being as flat as normal, they are more rounded, looking like weird fingers. I can't get them to grow right either.
