I’ve always loved Terricolors. I have a secret obsession with them, actually. I think the draw is their coloration. They remind me of the mottled skins of elephants with their pink and purple hues and grey spots (the windows). I used to believe Terricolors were underrepresented in Lithops culture and certainly under-appreciated. I was delighted to see they rose to the top in the ‘favorite cultivar’ survey I held a couple months ago!
These are one year old Terricolor Peersii (catalogue #2014-11). I imported them from Germany and am happy to report that they are doing well and none the worse for wear after their long trip. They seem quite hardy and I’m hopeful they are going to do well here. I have read that this variety of Terricolor does tend to be a bit smaller than other Lithops and these particular plants are showing to be petite in stature so perhaps it is true. They will have yellow blooms once mature and with the nice color variations I’m already seeing in this pot, I think once they are in bloom, it will be a sight to behold for sure!
