I bought this Lithops today Hurray! Other than a failed attempt at growing them from seed (I forgot about them and they shrivelled up and died) I've no experience of growing lithops. I've read that they need little/no water in winter after they have flowered but that flowing time varies from type to type. Firstly can Lithops be ID'd from a picture, if so does anyone know what kind this is? Or if not does it look as if this one has flowered this year? If not do I need to continue to water carefully for a little while yet? Sorry about all the questions, but I'm hoping to keep thisone a little longer than the few moths that I had the seedlings for. I tip my hat to you.

Could it be Lithops gesinae v gesinae?
