Hi!!!

I have been MIA for many months now!  I think I mentioned that I was moving.  Well, that was a nightmare – haha!  Anyway, I’m back on my feet and thought I’d update on the 2014 Lithops.

I lost quite a few Lithops during my move, but the 2014 lot remained unharmed 🙂

Since settling into the new house, my Lithops have been somewhat neglected.  I have wall to wall windows, but because I’m in a forest and my house has an overhanging roof, I don’t actually get a lot of sunlight.  I had to put the Lithops in a South facing basement window.  They were pretty high up and being all of 5’2″ myself, it wasn’t easy to check on them.  Suffice it to say, they didn’t get ANY water all summer!  And guess what, they did awesome!!!

I am now in the process of setting up artificial lights for the Winter.  I have a three season sunroom where they will live next Summer so hopefully my light issue won’t be as much of an issue next year as it was this year.  Today they had their last drink of water until Spring.

2015 ‘Zorro’

I think one of the two is worthy of propagation!

2016 ‘Zorro’

My ‘Zorro’ seeds from Oz Lithops have arrived!  I’m going to have ‘Zorro’ babies in 2016!!!  Fingers crossed for some pretty ones 🙂

“Zorro”

I’m happy to report that the Dorotheae ‘Zorro’ have made it through the Winter.  All of them are getting ready to shed their old leaves.  The babies are sooooooooooooooo cute, but that two year old is stunning!  Love them 😀

Dorotheae – 2014 & 2015

I ended up with only two Dorotheae ‘Zorro’ seedlings surviving out of ten seeds.  They are very different from each other so I’ll be interested to see how they mature.  The pink one is easy to identify because it has a perfect little red ‘x’ on one lobe.

The 2014 plants continue to do well.  The ‘Zorro’ is, of course, stunning, but check out the plant at the top left of the photo.  Wow!  🙂
