The Two Leslieis…

It was evident from the beginning that I had two different colour varieties in my Lot of Lesliei Albinica seedlings.  Now that they are trading in their baby leaves for the adult skins, the difference is quite striking!

Isn’t it amazing how well the dark green variety has camouflaged with the surrounding gravel?  It is an understated beautiful.  I have two of this type.  The light green variety really pops in the pot and is very beautiful.  I have five of this type.  The patterns on the two types are virtually the same…they are just different colours.

And Who do we Have Here???

My first Lesliei Albinica to renew it’s leaves.  I had to help it along, which I understand is a big ‘no-no’, but it was really struggling and was starting to grow at a weird angle  =\

The little lithops are doing well.  I’ve been ignoring my blog as nothing is really happening right now.  Lithops grow so slowly…I’m not seeing much change at all these days. 

The little green seedling from Lot #1 still doesn’t look very good.  I’m not sure if it’s just starting to grow it’s adult leaves or if it has suffered some kind of damage.  That Lot still isn’t firmly rooted in their new pot following the transplant but it’s been more than a few weeks so I don’t think I’m at risk of losing any.  Karasmontana took a spill this morning when a curious Aussie stuck his nose into the pot, but I don’t think any damage was done.

Lot #1 – 12 weeks
Lot #2 – 9 weeks
The Rest – 6 weeks

Picture Day!

I had the seedlings out for a soaking so thought it would be the perfect opportunity to get some photos!  Everyone seems to be doing well.  Here they are from youngest to oldest.

2 Weeks Old Seedlings…


5 Week Old Seedlings….


8 Week Old Seedlings…


Sadly, I only have one Otzeniana seedling but at least it looks strong!  I’m still worried about Lot #1.  They have not anchored well following the transplant on Monday.  My fingers are still crossed for them.

Aren’t You Interesting!

Lot #2 is now 4 weeks old!  The seedlings have started to catch up to where Lot #1 was at 4 weeks and they are starting to show a definite shape.  I, of course, have some Lesliei Albinica seedlings in there, but the rest are a mystery!  Check out this interesting guy…


There is ONE seedling like that one.  It is a deep blood red colour and has an iridescent red shimmer on it’s edges.  By far, this one is my favorite and if none of the other seedlings survive, I will be happy as long as I have that red one!

Elsewhere in the pot, I have three or four super tiny yellow seedlings.  I have no idea what they could be (I have my suspicions about the red one) but I think they are pretty cool and can’t wait to watch them mature.
