Nice sun on the greenhouse today. Worked like magic.

That ............. was worth waiting for
Endeavouring to grow Aeoniums, Aylostera, Echinocereus, Echinopsis, Gymnocalycium, Lithops, Matucana, Rebutia, and Sulcorebutia.
Currently being wooed by Haworthia, attempting hybridisation, and enticed by Mesembs.

Excellent! Have you got Lithops flowering in every month of the year yet Ian?

There's a couple of months I'm missing. Might have to seriously abuse them to fill those gaps. Conophytums flowering in every month is a more realistic goal.

Do you know what types they are Ian?

For the purple one in the background of the first pic, would that one need some water? If I saw that by itself I'd be tempted to give it some but the others look pretty full

The white flower is L. optica 'Rubra' in a dish with other L. optica plants of various colours. The one with yellow flowers is L. meyeri, most likely (99% certain). It was in the same dish, but I tagged it as an imposter last year and evicted it.

Lots of Lithops are pretty wrinkly at this time of year, some a lot more so than the one in the photo. The wrinkly leaves are going to get a whole lot more wrinkly before they see any water. I find L. optica 'Rubra' difficult enough to get rid of the old leaves, partly because it does tend to get watered late into autumn (or winter!) to support the late flowers.
