The Fulviceps are starting to awaken from their Winter sleep! This is a sure sign of Spring!
While checking on the Lithops yesterday, I noticed that two of my adult Fulviceps have started to renew their leaves. This marks the start of the Lithops growing cycle (well, actually…the new plants have been forming inside the old plants all Winter and that was the official start of the growing cycle, but we couldn’t see that happening so for our purposes, I’m going to call this the start!). Once the old leaves are fully absorbed and the new plants have emerged, we’ll be able to resume watering – carefully at first, then more abundantly until Summer when the plants should go dormant again.
Can you see the new plant forming inside?
Edit: These plants, like all my adults, have been without water since last October. I’ve been strong and haven’t given them even a drop 🙂
