Rescue IDs

Post by Ivan » Thu Dec 07, 2017 5:37 pm

I came across these and they look like they were just watered, at least the Lithops anyway. They were in thimble pots and peat mix. I just had to rescue them. Now I need to id them. Any help would be appreciated.

My guess would be.
#1 L. verruculosa
#2 L. hookeri
#3 (I know this one but it just won't come to me)

You meant L. fulviceps, right?

And you were thinking of Pleiospilos 'Royal Flush'?

Actually I wasn't. The colour was off from what I looked at. But, Thank-you! :smile:

L. fulviceps has dark (usually) raised bumps, any red markings will be thin lines, usually broken into very short dashes. L. verruculosa has tiny red pimples, sometimes hard to see but unique to this species.
