Lithops Seedlings

I just sowed lithops seeds and seedlings started appearing after 5-6 days. This is the first time that I am growing lithops. I bought these seeds from ebay. I am doubtful whether the seedlings are, in fact, lithops or something else. I have seen many photos of lithops seedlings on google and I am doubtful. Can you please see the uploaded photo and tell me if they are lithops seedlings or I have been fooled by ebay seller.

Thanks and Best Regards,

Your seedlings look like very young Lithop seedlings. Keep going!

@Downtoearthdigs when i searched about lithops seedlings on google, all the seedlings looked plump, but my seedlings does not looks like that. So I am doubtful. How long does it take for seedlings to look plump after appearance?

Thanks,

They resemble a small pair of lips! This image should help you identify the plant.

Stone Faces

I have three small, stone faces.one has just died completely, but the other 2 remain. It says on the pot only to water when the leaves dry up, yet it says on the article not to water between fall and spring. Not sure what to do. Will I have new babies coming up? Thanks

They, definitely, do like a drier climate. They can tolerate quite a bit of drought, although they do like to be watered occasionally. If they remain watered for too long, they can get an infection, as well.

Here is an article on their care: https://www.gardeningknowhow.com/ornamental/cacti-succulents/lithop/growing-living-stone-plants.htm
