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!

Yeah! Hurray!

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

Exciting to see that they bloom!!!!

Hi & welcome, Vlngrl!

Your question is worth of the attention of a separate discussion, IMVHO. All pairs of eyes that visit this forum would see it that way. As it is, only those who find it within this discussion about pics of blooms would see it. I'm sorry I can't offer an anecdote, not something I've done. Best luck!
