Ugh…

Will this winter never end?  I have so many seeds and am chomping at the bit to get started.  I can’t even see out my windows this morning; they are all frosted up 😦

I hope everyone’s plants are surviving this particularly cold and long winter!

Still the Undisputed Favorite!

This Lithops is still my undisputed favorite out of all 70 yearlings.  It’s new leaves are fully emerged now; just waiting for the old leaves to dry up and shrivel away.  I love the deep reticulations on this particular plant.  It is very unique amongst my collection; one of a kind.  And continues to lead the pack in achieving all major milestones – first to shed it baby leaves, first to renew it’s adult leaves, first to ask for water 🙂

Lot #1 Revisted

Lot #1 was actually my second attempt at growing Lithops from seed.  My first attempt failed miserably and was the catalyst for me to actually do some research and learn about how to care for Lithops properly.  Lot #1 was sown in a glass sealer jar.  Not my most brilliant decision and I ended up having to re-pot them when they were only a few months old.  Originally, I had three seedlings; two survived re-potting and are now almost a year old!  This Lot is from a mixed Lot of seed I found at a local green house so I don’t have a positive ID on them yet.  Both share similar characteristics and closely resemble a seedling I have in Lot #2.  I imagine I will group them together eventually.
