Verruculosa ‘Rose of Texas’

11 Nov

I’m very excited about these seedlings.  Typically, Lithops have white or yellow flowers, but Verruculosa ‘Rose of Texas’ has pink flowers!  As far as I know, it is the only Lithops species that does 🙂

P.S.   You can also see another rogue ‘Albinica’ to the far right in this photo.  I’m starting to think ALL my ‘Fred’s Redhead’s’ are ‘Albinicas’  :/

    These are so cute! I can’t wait for my babies to start going in action, I think a few of them are starting to show some “signs”.

    Wondering, have you seized watering for your adult Lithops yet? I think it’s about time to do that for the adult ones, but not so for the seedlings/yearlings right?

    Hi David! Yes, I watered my adults for the last time on Sunday. The tricky ones were my home grown yearlings. They are looking wrinkly, but have old leaves to absorb so I didn’t water them. I’m going to try to be strong and let them go until Spring. It’s possible I’ll lose some, but that’s part of the learning process. I think it’s going to take ‘tough love’ to get them on the correct schedule. Fingers crossed I’m right. But yes, the normal adults are not going to get anymore water until Spring for sure 🙂

      Wow, I just watered them for the last time this past Sunday too, haha what a coincidence xD. Sounds good, I will now cease watering and see how they do. None of them flowered this year other than the one in July…. but the L. aucampiae is already showing the new leaves if I peak inside!
      Yeah, the yearlings from Germany are a bit harder to read, I think I will continue watering them as needed, I remember seeing it somewhere that they may need some watering through the winter until they’re adult size.

    I guess I’m on the right track with my watering schedule… except mine is more due to forgetfulness and neglect!
    Those albinica seedlings keep showing up, I can think of plenty of worse weeds to have 🙂
