Julii ‘Peppermint Creme’ – Day 5

08 Jul

We have babies!!!  I know I’m supposed to post tomorrow, but I couldn’t wait to share the news!  Looks like we got high percent germination too  🙂


Step by Step

It’s been 5 days since we sowed our little peppermint creme seeds.  If you recall, I covered them with plastic wrap and put them in a location where they would get bright, but indirect sunlight.  That’s all I did!  There was enough moisture in the pot so I didn’t need to mist them.  I just let them sit and grow.

I have a sun room.  I was a bit concerned because it gets very very hot in there during the afternoons, but over night and mornings are chilly.  The little Lithops didn’t seem to mind!  They are tough lil guys.  I think they germinated in record time.

Tips n’ Tricks

How did I know there was enough moisture in the pot?  If there is moisture in the pot, water droplets/condensation will form on the inside of the plastic wrap.  As long as that is there, no need to water, they have enough to drink 😀

      Hi bittster! It sure was. And these seeds were two or three years old so definitely impressive. The trick now will be keeping them alive 🙂
