They Might be Plants

Flowering Lithops Some time ago we obtained a small collection of lithops. Some were purchased as plants, some as seeds. Most of the seeds that we planted actually sprouted, but a large number were lost to fungus gnat larve, and the remainder were lost when I dropped the pot containing the seedlings. The lithops that we purchased as plants have been slowly dying due to causes that have yet to be determined. The few that remain were moved outside a couple of months ago. This week two of them bloomed. Above is a snapshot taken by nagscifi. The image has been modified – it has had the same treatment as the pyramids on the cover of Nat. Geo.
