Lithops optica ‘Rubra’, as always, doing their own thing. They should be growing big now, loosing their old pair of leaves, preparing for a hot and sunny summer. But they don’t. As we say over here, “van a su bola”. Both heads are preparing for their third pair of leaves. The plant grows outside, in the sun, getting sprinkled every other day and a thorough watering once a month – obviously enough – and not enough for an accompanying grass, that dried a few weeks ago and a spontaneus Anagallis-seedling, that just had enough moisture for one gorgeous blue flower and the seed capsule.
