It's pretty much all lithops, all the time -- in excruciating detail. (I might have a problem.) Consider yourselves warned. NJ USA Zone 7a

I repotted Fraggle Funnyface and peeled off the papery leaf tissue that remained. He's still a lot smaller than the other #lithops #seedlings his age, but his two buggy eyes seem to be growing slowly and steadily. #grownfromseed #fromseed #growyourown #gyo #gyolithops 21 Sep 2018

I dialed up the exposure so the camera could see how the dried-out skin of the old leaves has split by the pressure of the new leaves expanding. #lithops #seedlings #grownfromseed #fromseed #growyourown #gyo #gyolithops

Fraggle Funnyface's nose has gotten shorter and fatter and the redness has faded a bit. He's more green toward the base than he used to be. Outer leaves near mouth are starting to look a little translucent. Cheeks are chubbier. 😊 #lithops #seedlings #grownfromseed #fromseed #growyourown #gyo #gyolithops #upclose #closeup #cutiepatootie #smallisbeautiful #muppetface

Fraggle Funnyface is showing his green tongue. Pretty soon he's going to finish shedding these outer leaves and become a tiny cluster of mini's. I'll miss his crazy face, but I like the #cutiepatooties that are growing in. #lithops #seedlings #grownfromseed #fromseed #growyourown #gyo #gyolithops

I assumed that when Fraggle Funnyface's eyes appeared that those eyes were the new baby leaves that had decided to take the escape hatch instead of exiting out through the main gate like other plants. After all, #escapeartists aren't rare in the #lithops pot. I expected the red nose and mouth to shrivel and shrink away since the babies went out the back, but that's not actually what's happening. It looks like there may be ANOTHER PAIR OF LEAVES still inside. The red outer leaves are opening...

Funnyface Fraggle seems like he is actually twins of something. I see the tiniest hint of a line going across his two eyes, which suggests his eyes are actually two baby lithops bodies. Now to figure out the species. Someone suggested he might be an optica rubra which really would be too good to be true. It'll be a miracle if I can get him to adulthood; I've heard they're difficult to grow.

I think this funnyface reminds me of a Fraggle. 30 Apr 2018 #lithops #seedlings #grownfromseed #fromseed #growyourown #gyo #gyolithops #livingstones #succulents #closeup #upclose #cutiepatootie #smallisbeautiful Someone on Facebook said he might be an optica rubra seedling, as (1) he's the right shape and color, and (2) opticas are more sensitive to overwatering, which I have definitely done.

This #lithops #seedling officially gets his own GT plant listing in my collection today. He sprouted with my other mixed lithops seeds from #mesagarden but he looks so different from my other seedlings (perhaps due to my overwatering) that I'm going to keep an eye on him and see what he develops into. He looks like one of the #muppets with green eyes and a big plush #muppetmouth No idea why this guy has two green bumps/eyes.
