Julii ‘Peppermint Creme’ – Day 54

Hi Guys,

Not a lot happening with the ‘Peppermint Cremes’.  They look pretty much exactly the same as they did at day 47.

Step-by-Step

Light:  These guys are spending approximately 12 hours a day under their LED light.  They are not getting any natural light at all.

Water:  I continue to give them a good soak once a week. I have reduced misting to once a day.

Food Lithops are used to living in very poor soil conditions and don’t need much in terms of fertilizers.  That said, I do include a few drops (really…only three) of a balanced plant fertilizer in their soaking water once a week.  The soak takes place in the kitchen sink so this is a very very very small amount of fertilizer that probably doesn’t do any good or harm but for some reason, makes me feel like I am caring for them better :/

Temperature:  The nights are getting cold here and I worry about how far behind these little guys seem.  The days are still very warm.
