I have always enjoyed growing Lithops, some of my best plants I've raised from seed and the whole process from germination to growing on to maturity has been very rewarding. However I haven't had great luck getting them to bloom, so image my delight today to find this sparkling yellow flower on one of my plants.
I'm not sure what I did to get it to bloom, it has spent the summer in the greenhouse and then for the last few months outside, but under the eves of the south facing kitchen. Perhaps the heavy rain we had a few days ago was heavy enough to reach the sheltered spot and trigger this flowering ? I hope it will still be open tomorrow for my Open Garden.
