I am really getting into Lithops, and I've always wondered what different types I have! I know they can be difficult to ID, but I didn't know if anyone on here had Lithops ID knowledge? Hilarious! I know the one in the middle is a Pleiospilos nelii 'Royal Flush' and not a Lithops, but any idea on the others? I'm addicted. Lovey dubby

No ID's from me, but those are all wonderful! I've killed every one I've tried. I think it was from over watering.

Thank you!!! I've read up on them and they are dormant from around Nov. to Feb. so you honestly just sorta ignore them. Like maybe once a month I will sprinkle a teeeeeny amount of water near their bases. Then once the older leaves shrivel up and the new ones start growing you start to water again! My purple split rock is going to bloom here soon Smiling

These are amazing Lindsay! Sorry I can't help with the ID. I might give them a try sometime.
In some Native languages the term for plants translates to "those who take care of us."

Lithops ID is a pretty specialized niche. I wouldn't know where to start with that. But they look great and it is good that you know their special watering needs.
