Flatest plants I could find this morning, these lithops have been neglected in this 2" pot for many years on the top shelf in my greenhouse.

I might have a perfectly fine (i.e. not beheaded!) Crassula fitting the theme pretty well: Crassula capitella ssp. thyrsiflora 'Red Pagoda' (I hope). It also does seem to be much more proliferous than all the photos I find online, nothing to complain about I guess :mrgreen:

Based in London, slowly expanding my modest C&S collection. In love with P. compactum & Co. and columnar Crassulas.

It's a spineless form of Echinopsis (or Lobivia) ancistrophora called 'Tug'.
