Julii ‘Peppermint Creme’ – Day 0

Hi All!

I’m not even going to make an excuse as to why I haven’t posted in almost a year.  Life.  ugh.

Instead, we are going to follow a new batch of Lithops.  The 2018 Lithops are Julii ‘Peppermint Creme’.  Their sowing day was today and we are going to follow them for the next year!  I am looking forward to watching them grow.  I haven’t had baby Lithops in forever!

Here they are at Day Zero!!!  Be sure to check back often.  I will be updating the site every Sunday 🙂

2015 Line Up

The new seeds are starting to come in! On the roster for 2015, we have…

  • C166 Vallis-Mariae
  • C111A Hallii var. Ochracea cv “Green Soapstone”
  • Dorotheae ‘Zorro’ (only 10 seeds…there was a cap on how many I could buy)
  • C124 Dorotheae
  • F357 Dorotheae
  • C300 Dorotheae
  • C345A Terricolor ‘Speckled Gold’ (I had to get some after they won our poll on favorite Lithops cultivars 🙂 )
  • C146 Schwantesii
  • C165 Schwantesii Gebseri
  • C074 Schwantesii Urikosensis

And then…I have a bit of a confession to make. I’ve recently become interested in other Mesembs and have some different types of seeds coming. These would be…

  • Monilaria Moniliformis
  • Frithia Humilis
  • Frithia Pulchra
  • Titanopsis Hugo-Schlechteri
  • Titanopsis Schwantesii

I’m really going to need a greenhouse now!  And once everything is nicely established, I’ve decided to join our local cactus & succulent guild.  It will be fun to meet some like minded people 🙂

Terricolor ‘Silver Spurs’

The winner of the poll I did a while back for ‘Favorite Cultivar’ was a tie between Optica Rubra and Terricolor ‘Speckled Gold’.  Thanks to everyone who played along!

I was actually surprised the Terricolor did so well.  I’ve always liked them, but they seem to be a little under appreciated.  Anyway, I was pleasantly surprised by the results and to celebrate, I planted some Terricolor seeds!  I didn’t have ‘Speckled Gold’, but I did have ‘Silver Spurs’ so that’s what I planted.  I can’t wait until they germinate and I find out how many I’ll have.  I only had a few seeds, 10 to be exact, so I’m hoping for a great germination rate.  Fingers crossed!

New Seeds!

My seed shipment from Germany arrived today!  I have three fresh packages of Otzeniana C280 to sow in the spring.  I also purchased some Hallii v. Hallie, a couple different types of Terricolor, and…drum roll…Aucampiae v Aucampiae ‘Storms Snowcap’!!!  Storms Snowcap is one of the cultivars I’ve been drooling over this past year so I’m excited to have some seeds in my collection.

Now we just need to hope for an early Spring.  And hope my seeds weren’t damaged in the mail; it’s minus 38 degrees C here today and the little seeds spent more than a few hours in the mailbox outside =/
