Stressfull :(

OK, now I’m stressed out.  I transplanted my three seedlings from Lot #1 in an attempt to save the little green seedling that was growing into the glass of their previous home.  Fingers crossed they don’t die a slow and painful death 😦

More Seedlings!

Almost 1 week post sowing and we have seedlings in all three pots from Lot #3.  Karasmontana Lateritia was the first to emerge and has, by far, the most seedlings to date with over 20.  Julii Fulleri Rouxii was second with a slow showing of 4 or 5 tiny green seedlings emerging yesterday, and finally, just today, I have ONE Otzeniana seedling 🙂

I look forward to watching them grow over the upcoming weeks.  Pictures to follow (once they start looking like Lithops – LOL!)

7 Weeks…

LOt #1 is seven weeks old!  They aren’t doing much right now.  I’ve started to reduce their watering a bit and they are none the worse for wear.  I think I might lose the bright green seedling that is pressing up against the side of the glass of the sealer.  I’ve been tempted to re-pot them, but I’m worried about disturbing them and potentially losing the other two, which at this point, seem to be doing well.  It’s quite a quandary.  I’m leaning towards risking it…I have over 30 healthy seedlings from Lot #2 and over 20 healthy seedlings from my Karasmontana pot, so I won’t be Lithops-less if the re-potting fails 😦

Aren’t You Interesting!

Lot #2 is now 4 weeks old!  The seedlings have started to catch up to where Lot #1 was at 4 weeks and they are starting to show a definite shape.  I, of course, have some Lesliei Albinica seedlings in there, but the rest are a mystery!  Check out this interesting guy…

There is ONE seedling like that one.  It is a deep blood red colour and has an iridescent red shimmer on it’s edges.  By far, this one is my favorite and if none of the other seedlings survive, I will be happy as long as I have that red one!

Elsewhere in the pot, I have three or four super tiny yellow seedlings.  I have no idea what they could be (I have my suspicions about the red one) but I think they are pretty cool and can’t wait to watch them mature.

And The Winner is…

First seedlings from Lot#3 have emerged and WOW, are there ever a lot of them!!!  Karasmontana Lateritia is the winner and is growing with gusto!  I still have plastic on the pots, but I’m pretty sure I had close to 20 seedlings yesterday and they are bright green!  Can’t wait to see if the other pots sprout today 🙂
