2015 Dorotheae ‘Zorro’

I pulled out the magnifying glass and a flashlight and did a recount of the ‘Zorro’ seedlings and there are TEN!  Woot woot!  All ten seeds germinated!!!

They are super tiny (way smaller then the Terricolor or Mystery seedlings) so fingers crossed we get a high survival rate!  It is looking favorable though 🙂

2015 Seedling Count

It’s been a week and a half and so far, this is what we have:

  • 5 Terricolor ‘Speckled Gold’
  • 3 Dorotheae ‘Zorro’
  • 10 Mystery Seedlings

I’m a little disappointed with the ‘Zorro’ germination rate (30%), but won’t be uncovering them for a few more days; hopefully at lease a couple more pop up.  Fingers crossed!

Teeny Tiny Lil’ Lithops

Remember a few weeks back when I said I didn’t like sowing seeds directly onto course mix as the seedlings end up really small?  Check out this one.  And it’s getting ready to shed!!!


I think this is either a Fulviceps or Nebrownii cotyledon.  The seedlings in this pot are strong, but oh my goodness, so small!  I’ve never had such tiny seedlings before.  I hope they make it to maturity!  This little experiment has me firmly decided that the 50% soil mix is best for young seedlings; at least in my home.

What the H.E. double hockey sticks is this?  It’s supposed to be either ‘Opalina’, ‘Fred’s Redhead’, or ‘Rose of Texas’.  Uhmmm???

Edit:  This plant is so bright, it almost glows!

2014 Mixed Lot @ 5 Months

Almost 5 months old and the first cotyledon has renewed it’s leaves!  I’m pretty sure this one is Karasmontana “Opalina” but it could also be Verruculosa “Rose of Texas”.  I do have Lesliei Fred’s Red Head in this pot, but this little guy isn’t the right color to be one 😉
