More commonly known as a ‘living stone plant’ for its rock-like appearance, lithops are small and easy to care for.
Generally October, November, and December see the most consecutive blooming times. They can even bloom as early as September in the right conditions. Here brushes are used to pollinate the plants because they are not self-pollinating.

When pollinating, you want the pollen from the same species only. An interesting thing to keep in mind, too, is that the sooner the flowers are pollinated, the sooner they will begin to power down.
