Lithops flowers!

L. terricolor "localis" in flower


Came home from a thesis hideaway to find that my three lithops have flowered! Took the pictures right at sunset; I really like the quality of the light at this time of day, will have to try sunset picture taking again.

I swirled a paintbrush (aka surrogate insect) around the flowers for the heck of it. I know hydrid lithops aren't supposed to be very vigorous or interesting, but I figured what the heck, why not try to get some sort of a seed pod.

L. dorotheae flowering, but stubbornly closed

My L. fulviceps has already finished flowering - I didn't take a picture of him since the flower was shriveled.


  1. WOW! That is a beautiful flower! See, even your weird plants are rooting for you! :D

  2. Beautiful terricolor flower, & love the awesome markings on the dorotheae! :)
