As far as I am aware, all the Lithops will form double heads when they're happy. Beware when reading articles, particularly from North America, as other genera are often referred to as lithops. There are several videos on youtube showing how to re-pot, care for, water your Lithops and it's not a Lithops before the camera. Pleiospilos is one commonly misidentified as such. One video in particular described a double head as shown above as a problem with care and watering because she'd seen that in a video. Such a shame she'd completely misunderstood the information being imparted. But that didn't stop her passing it on. Comments are made under the videos but they still appear uncorrected. The information she was referring to was about 'stacking' which is the formation of new leaves without the old leaves dying back. That's caused mainly by watering too early before the old leaves have been reabsorbed..
stevebooth: I don’t begrudge them the Sphagnum, it’s what is with it that I covet, plus they seem to totally remove the top layer and use the lower levels, I have hopefully rendered many of the pots more birdproof this afternoon.

stevebooth: The first new outside pitcher of the year has opened today, that’s some difference to the greenhouse plants. The flowers are looking nice though.
