Conophytums

01 Oct

The Conophytum Minimum ‘Wittebergense’ are a year and eight months old and are looking fantastic!!!  One of the plants divided this summer so I think they are doing very well.  Maybe there will be flowers this year?  Fingers crossed!

The Conophytum Ursprungianum babies from 2015 have finally shed their baby leaves.  I’ve ended up with only two and I blame the change in substrate; I think it was too course for the tiny seeds.  Anyway, the two I have are perfectly beautiful and I look forward to watching them grow.

    They are all looking good, but it’s not minimum wittebergense. Conophytum minimum doesn’t have lobes such as yours and the general form is not like that. It’s perhaps one of the many bilobum ssp but for me, it’s a still ittle COnophytum taylorianum. 😀

    In fact the second one (Conophytum obcordellum ursprugianum) seems to not be an ursprugianum too 😦
    (excuse my bad English 😦 )

    Hi Kelenas! I must admit, I don’t know much about Conophytum and these seeds weren’t purchased from the most reliable source (it was the same source that sold me “Fred’s Redhead” seeds that were in fact “Albinica” seeds – LOL!). No need to be sad; I would LOVE if someone could ID them for me!

    I looked up Conophytum taylorianum and that seems very plausible for the older plants. We’ll probably have to wait and see about the little guys 🙂

    They are darling though! The Conophytums are quickly stealing my heart!
