Dinteranthus `Vanzylii Pofadder’ Update

20 Aug

It’s been nine (9) days since my Dinteranthus seeds were sown and still, no sign of any seedlings.  They are proving as difficult to germinate as their reputation suggests.  I was very close to sowing some mixed Halli seeds on top of them tonight but decided I could let them go for another week or so before I give up.  Frustrating!

On a related note, I have six (6) brand new Terricolor ‘Silver Spurs’ starting.  They are 11 days old and starting to strengthen up.  As I look at all the pots on my windowsill, I wonder where I’ll be putting everyone once the 2014 seedlings are mature enough to re-pot.  Lithops are like potato chips; you can’t have just one!

    They are quite the cool little plants, you’ve done well with them. Hopefully I don’t come across any seed because this could be very tempting, and my one little pot of lithops already has enough company!
    Thanks for an interesting blog.

      Thanks for the comment, Frank. Lithops addiction is a serious thing – haha! As I look over at my windowsill that is now officially FULL of little pots, I come to realize how out of hand things have become. To think that it all started with my desire for ONE adult Lithops plant!

      I’m happy you are enjoying the blog and I hope it is useful for you at some point in the future!
