Eight months ago, I sowed a pot with a bunch of misc. seed packets I had laying around. There were Verruculosa ‘Rose of Texas’, Karasmontana ‘Opalina’, and Fred’s Red Head seeds. The Fred’s Red Head turned out to be Albinica (grrrr…) but the ‘Rose of Texas’ and ‘Opalina’ sowed true to type! The ‘Opalina’ was the first to germinate and the first to shed and it was STUNNING! I was so looking forward to a pot full of these guys! Unfortunately, only one out of ten germinated. Meh, at least it’s pretty 🙂
Karasmontana ‘Opalina’ is a BIG Lithops so maybe it’s a good thing this little guy was a singleton!
Wanna see something really precious? These are my 1 year old Lava Flow babies! I purchased them from Conos Paradise and am thrilled that they seem to be thriving under my care. I’m not 100% sure what ‘Lava Flow’ is. I know it is a hybrid and I’ve read somewhere that it is a Karasmontana, but there isn’t a lot of information out there about them to be sure. Doesn’t matter, they are CUTE! And I can’t wait until they are old enough to flower 🙂
