Happy Sowing Day! 1 Year old :)

Today marks one year since I sowed Verruculosa ‘Rose of Texas’.  I have 7 gorgeous plants from that sowing and they are doing very well!  You can certainly see the characteristic dots on the new leaves that Verruculosa is so famous for.  They look like pin pricks or spider eyes to me (ewwww…spiders!) – haha!

I can’t wait to share their blooms.  These particular Lithops have pink flowers rather then the standard yellow or white 🙂

Verruculosa ‘Rose of Texas’

I’m very excited about these seedlings.  Typically, Lithops have white or yellow flowers, but Verruculosa ‘Rose of Texas’ has pink flowers!  As far as I know, it is the only Lithops species that does 🙂

P.S.   You can also see another rogue ‘Albinica’ to the far right in this photo.  I’m starting to think ALL my ‘Fred’s Redhead’s’ are ‘Albinicas’  :/

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 😉

Another Month Gone By!

Another month has gone by and the 2014 seedlings continue to flourish. I continue to water them twice a day with a good soaking on the weekend. They live under lights, indoors, with approximately 12 hours of light a day. I do my best to mimic what is happening outside. I’m excited to see what these guys will look like as they go through their first leaf renewal, but experience tells me that I have at least a month, and maybe more, to wait before that happens.

The Aucampiae seedlings are getting so BIG! In this pot, I have a mix including Storm’s Snowcap and Kurumen form. The seeds were purchased from three different sources so I should have a nice variety here. I love the deep purple tones of some of the seedlings.

The Dorotheae pot continues to grow at a slow pace.  I can see some brand new seedlings so I think some slow pokes are still germinating.  There are also a few really large seedlings which makes me really wonder what I’m going to get out of this pot!  I sowed seeds for Zorro in this pot so I hope for some really stunning plants.

If you followed the blog while the 2013 seedlings were developing, you’ll know that I didn’t have much luck with Otzeniana last year.  I have quite a few robust specimens this year so I’m hoping my luck has turned around!  Most of the Otzeniana seeds came from Hong Kong, so I looked far and wide for these guys.

And finally, I have a ‘mish mash’ pot; it has an eclectic mix of Verruculosa, Karasmontana, and Lesliei!  I ended up with a few packets of misc seeds so I just threw them together to see what would happen.  I think this will be the prettiest pot once the first true leaves appear 🙂
