Lithops karasmontana bella     10/28/21

This might be one plant. It turns out that the generation of a new body may actually produce two new bodies, which may the next year produce four new bodies, then 8, etc. And once flowering starts in three years or so from sowing, each crack may produce a flower. You can see one crack on the center left above does nor appear to have a bud developing. Almost all the others have a bud. The Lithops flowers usually last a week or more. The pot whose edges you can see is 2.5" (6 cm) square.
