    Lithops in Bloom

    One of my Lithops decided it wants to flower. There's one now and another on the other way:

    Beautiful! L. aucampiae I presume? All but my L. salicola rotted this summer. I decided to chance not moving them in from the rain, since last year I was doing it multiple times a week and it became wayyy too labor-intensive.

    Congrats on the blooming! Lithops are definitely very challenging plants for me to keep long term. Pity. Such nifty lil plants.

    Nice looking flowers. Does this picture show color pretty accurately? Specifically the pink at the outside.

    It's more of a red than a pink in real life.

    Since most of my succulents are set and forget except for an occasional watering, I suspect our drought had something to do with my success. Winter under lights with minimal watering is the easy part.

    Upon closer inspection, the reverse side of the petals is definitely pink. Also the flower seems to be becoming redder as time passes. I'll be posting another pic of the plant in a day or two when the second flower opens.
