I just got my first Lithops (Stone Face) cactus this summer and to my surprise it blossomed! I didn't know it would do that, and I am happy I saw it when it did, because I hear cactus blossoms may last only a day. I guess he likes it here! I also have a Pleiospilos nelii(split rock), but it hasn't bloomed. These little jems are a wonderful addition to my plant family!

Those little things are amazing. So healthy. Having the discipline to not overwater is a skill I admire, Very impressive. You are the stone face whisperer!!

Fantastic! One of mine bloomed soon after I got it in 2013 but I haven't seen any new blooms since.

Lauriebasler,
LOL! Actually, my watering discipline is definitely not a skill - I am sure my other plants think its a curse! I am one of those who water when I think of it D'Oh! , but luckily my plants have just learned to adjust. Smiling
