Julii ‘Peppermint Creme’ – 4 mos, 1 wk

4 months and 1 week old and I do say, I think they are finally growing.  I have the seedlings under fluorescent lighting with the light source a mere 1/2 inch above the pot.  Seems to be doing the trick.  But…just as the seedlings finally start making gains, I’ve run into a ladybug problem!  The ladybugs are coming in from outside, looking for a warm place to stay over the winter and seem delighted to find sweet succulent Lithops to curb their appetites.  I find ladybugs in the pot feasting on our seedlings every time I look.  Not sure what to do about this problem 😦

Julii ‘Peppermint Creme’ – 4 months

I am starting to worry about these seedlings.  I am in Canada and the weather is turning cold!  It is cold in my house…I was hoping these seedlings would be further along by now and better able to handle the winter :/

I think they *may* be a tad bigger then they were two weeks ago.10292017

Julii ‘Peppermint Creme’ – 3 Months, 2 Weeks

Alright.  I think I see some positive changes (i.e. growth).  The seedlings have been under fluorescent lights for a week now.  I think they are looking better.  What say you ?

Still not much growing on 😉 with the seedlings.  I’ve moved them to fluorescent lighting.  We’ll see if that makes a difference in their lives.

It is getting cold here in Canada and I expect snow soon.  Probably only one more watering for the adult Lithops and then it will be time for them to go dormant.  I keep my Lithops under lights in the winter, but I withhold water until Spring.
