I still have a few Lithops to flower. Unless there is some sun they may wait until the Spring.
Mine are often growing flower buds but dry them off later. Waiting is pointless for those XD
I agree. I think the Lithops bromfieldii group are among the easiest of all lithops species to grow. They are certainly easier than L. aucampiae, which is often suggested as easy. I would also add L. lesliei and L. fulviceps to the easy group. Even when lithops are looking the way they should look, they certainly look sad when going through their regeneration period. Often you don't see the new forming leaves, just the old leaves drying up and making you think the plant is certainly dying and desperately needs water. I'm glad I have a curtain between the window sill where my lithops reside in winter and the room so I don't have to look at them closely everyday in winter. Even though I know what's happening I still sometimes feel sad with the way they look. It's often hard being a Lithops Lover. :)
I agree about bromfieldii and fulviceps, but lesliei are not that easy for me. They never flower and I'm always afraid to lose them during regeneration. I think they don't like no-food approach. I should feed them once in a while. My lesliei are always very small and kinda weak.Yeah, no luck with aucampiae. I have own seedlings that are doing well. But none of the adult plants I bought have survived long.I'd say gesinae are another easy kind. I've never lost one which has to mean something! :) Really? I don't think they look sad. They look like they are about to be reborn to me and it's a good fresh feeling. Also, for a grower it is quite a relief to see them like this. It means all goes according to plan. If I see no wrinkles this time of the year something is not right. That's why this sight is very welcome :) Aaah the old shoe soles! Soon you are goinh to be shiny!
