Ten years ago, I found a little Lithops plant at Shelmerdine’s Greenhouse in Winnipeg, Manitoba. That little plant started an obsession! I thought it was just the coolest little thing. Sadly, it didn’t survive the move to Ontario and I couldn’t find any here, so I tried to grow one from a seed. I killed 160 Lithops seedlings that year. I’m nothing if not determined, so I read everything I could on the Genus and tried again.
This is my first successful seeding! I planted it in March 2013. I’m proud that not only was it my first successful seedling, but now it’s my first homegrown Lithops to divide into a multi-headed plant. I think this must be what it’s like to watch your kid go off to college! I’m beaming 😉
