I took pity on this plant and brought it inside so the bud had a chance to open.

just done the same thing with a couple of C370a avacado creams that are trying to flower for the first time, if I can raise some seed off them I will be well pleased.

Very nice Ian, and I am now the proud owner of a G Vatteri (thanks to Lindsey!).

Roy, what is a C370a avacado cream??? (sounds tasty lol!)

Tending more towards cacti :D, particularly Gymnocalyciums, Rebutias, Sulcorebutias, Echinopses, Thelos, Feros and Mamms (and anything else I like the look of!) all in an 8 x 6 polycarb greenhouse and a few windowsills!

Well I can see why it got it's name! I did do a Google search, but as expected, got plenty of info on recipes etc... No Lithops!

That flower looks almost identical to my amerhauseri.

And just look at that lithops bud! I have this fun to come next year. :)
