Julii ‘Peppermint Creme’ – 3 months, 1 week

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.

Julii ‘Peppermint Creme’ – 2 Months, 2 Weeks

I see progress!  I don’t know about you, but I think these guys are fatter and stronger looking then last week.  I also think they are thinning themselves out.  I was holding off on thinning because of the lack of growth, but the pot seems to have fewer, but stronger, seedlings.  I think mother nature took over this week!  Maybe it’s just me…or maybe it’s just the lighting…but they look more robust to my eye 🙂



I haven’t really done anything special these past couple weeks.   The seedlings continue to get a daily misting of water and are hanging out under the LED light 12 or so hours a day.  On weekends, I water from the bottom up and let them soak up a good amount of water.  Seems to be working!  Fingers crossed!

Julii ‘Peppermint Creme’ – 2 months, 1 week

The ‘Peppermint Creme’ seedlings are 2 months and 1 week old today!  I find months and weeks easier to count then days so that’s what we’ll stick with 😉

I was getting discouraged last week at how slowly the seedlings are growing.  Yes, they are still growing slowly, but I did some looking back on past seedlings I’ve had and noticed that they really don’t do too much until they are 5 months old.  So…if these ‘Peppermint Creme’ seedlings still look like this in 3 months, we can freak out then!  In the meanwhile, I’m going to give them space and time to grow!

Inventory of Adult Lithops

Tonight, I brought the adult Lithops inside and catalogued them before putting them under lights for the winter.  I thought I’d share!  I feel blessed to have such an amazing collection.  I can’t wait to add our ‘Peppermint Cremes’ to the roster 🙂
