Julii ‘Peppermint Creme’ – 2 Months, 2 Weeks

I see progress!  I don’t know about you, but I think these guys are fatter and stronger looking then last week.  I also think they are thinning themselves out.  I was holding off on thinning because of the lack of growth, but the pot seems to have fewer, but stronger, seedlings.  I think mother nature took over this week!  Maybe it’s just me…or maybe it’s just the lighting…but they look more robust to my eye 🙂



I haven’t really done anything special these past couple weeks.   The seedlings continue to get a daily misting of water and are hanging out under the LED light 12 or so hours a day.  On weekends, I water from the bottom up and let them soak up a good amount of water.  Seems to be working!  Fingers crossed!

Julii ‘Peppermint Creme’ – 2 months, 1 week

The ‘Peppermint Creme’ seedlings are 2 months and 1 week old today!  I find months and weeks easier to count then days so that’s what we’ll stick with 😉

I was getting discouraged last week at how slowly the seedlings are growing.  Yes, they are still growing slowly, but I did some looking back on past seedlings I’ve had and noticed that they really don’t do too much until they are 5 months old.  So…if these ‘Peppermint Creme’ seedlings still look like this in 3 months, we can freak out then!  In the meanwhile, I’m going to give them space and time to grow!

Inventory of Adult Lithops

Tonight, I brought the adult Lithops inside and catalogued them before putting them under lights for the winter.  I thought I’d share!  I feel blessed to have such an amazing collection.  I can’t wait to add our ‘Peppermint Cremes’ to the roster 🙂

Julii ‘Peppermint Creme’ – Day 61

I hereby dub thee, the slowest growing Lithops in the history of all Lithops!

Seriously guys, is it just me or are these Lithops the slowest growing Lithops of all time?  It’s like watching paint dry :/
