    I have a lithop that is slightly opening, I can see growth from the inside. But... from inside the inside growth is a brown peak. Is that going to be a flower? Does this even make sense? [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/confused.gif[/img]

    The lithops are green, a pale green. But there definitely is something growing up from the center. I have been tempted to pick at it with a tweezer, but I know I shouldn't. Ekkkk... what is it?

    It is probably a flower bud, they usually come from between the leaves. With some species, new growth could be a possibility, but not usually this time of year, and probably not if it is a different color. Probably best to wait and see what it is.

    The season is right for a flower: if it is sticking above the plant body it's a bud.

    Exclamation

    Hi, can someone please tell me where I can get some of these lithops. They seem like interesting plants, and I being very curious now have to have some.

    Thanks

    Not sure, I purchased mine from street vendors in NYC. Sorry. Lithopsman seems to be the one to ask.
