A bit on the tall side but a nice flower nonetheless.

And my first white flower of this year...

Getting there. This one will have straw-coloured flowers, the pink ones have no sign of buds yet.

Should be open soon? :razz: By my calculations,most of my Lithops take from 3 to 7 days from bud to flower.
I do like the variations in flower colour of the veruculosa.

If they haven't floated away, I'll take a look at my Lithops tomorrow. Sun is supposed to come back this week, so should be good.

I had max. temp of 45ºC yesterday but expecting low of 7ºC tonight. I'm kind of nervous but not so much for the Lithops, though. Any chance you could post the IDs? I like the second green one. I am finding it is much more difficult to identify Lithops. Even the ones I have change so much from the weather conditions in colour, especially on the amount of sun. The only way I can identify the many pictures I take is from the windows and islands patterns. I'm not totally sure what rubrications is, but little by little new "ah-ha" windows open up for me. :lol:

Looks like L. gracilidelineata ssp brandbergensis and L. fulviceps 'Aurea'.

Rubrications are just the red markings, dots, dashes, sometimes lines.
