The first seeds from my most recent order have started to trickle in! In this batch, we have…
1. Karasmontana “Opalina”. This variety of Karsmontana is white with an opal-like sheen! I had a hard time choosing between “Opalina” and “Mickbergensis”. Both varieties are very similar, but the “Opalina”, from this particular seller anyways, had more of pearly sheen so I went with that one.
2. Olivacea Nebrownii. Olivacea has large windows and very little pattern. I like how “open and airy” it is. This particular variety is a brownish/orange colour and will offer some nice variety in my future display pots!
3. Optica Rubra. Ruby red and very temperamental! Rubra has some unique care requirements. From what I understand, this species doesn’t like to go completely dry during the winter.
4. Bromfieldii var Insularis. Deep green and mustard yellow mottle the skin of this lithops. It reminds me of reptile skins 🙂
5. Fulviceps var Fulviceps. This lithops is a peachy colour with green/grey dots! I don’t have many dotted Lithops in my collection so I think it will stand out nicely in the group.
6. Verruculosa. This is a very unique species. It is pretty non-descript rose-grey in colour but the dots are raised and RED so it appears as though someone has pricked it many times with a pin and blood is pooling at the surface. This will be my ‘Emo’ Lithops – haha!
7. Hookeri Susannae. Looks like a brain. Had to have it!
8. Karasmontana “Jacobseniana” C277. This was my splurge from this order. Very pretty orange veins on a peach base. So many pretty Karasmontana varieties to choose from 🙂
