Lithops helmutii times two

My Lithops helmuthii seedlings (c271) must have multiplied over the winter. I didn't notice that until I took these pictures, but it's clearly visible that these two came from the same old plant.
I still have them under my energy saving lamp because I thought they weren't big enough yet to be living the "real" Lithops life on my window sill. But I guess it's time they moved into the sun.

This is what they're supposed to look like when they're older: http://www.lithops.info/de/galerie/lithops_c271.html

Lithops helmutii seedlings on May 28, 2012


  1. They look very different to the mature plants, I did not know they could multiply so quickly. Good luck with them. :-)

    1. Thanks! :)
      Yes, I was surprised to see this, too. But I have read that some Lithops are more prone to multiplying than others, both in young years as well as later.
      I find the color changes that happen at this age with every new pair of leaves very fascinating. They can look like completely different plants from one year to the next.
