A couple of Lithops

This Lithops - Lithops dinteri var. brevis stays pretty small and kind of has to labor in the shadow of its more flashy siblings. But I'm a bit strange...I like it. It's simple, straight forward and petite.
Lithops terricolor is another of the smaller growing species. This one (C134) - the Prince Albert form - is from 5 km North of Prince Albert, SA. and has the typical heart-shaped leaves. I think they're very attractive.
Enjoy your plants!


  1. Wow! the spotted/speckled lithops are beautiful! I've never seen them with that color/texture variation. Well done!

  2. Yes, the color varies quite a bit. And the Prince Albert form is especially nice. Thanks for your comments.

  3. To me, it looks like it should be called a butt-mushroom.
