It’s only been 5 days since this process started, but I’m starting to get impatient – LOL!

More seeds coming! Apparently 74 seedlings aren’t enough 🙂
My two favorite Lithops varieties are Dorotheae and Aucampie. I think they are absolutely stunning with their markings and colours! So when I saw the seller I bought my last seeds from had some Dorotheae and Aucampie for sale, I had to go for it. Since I was already buying some seeds, I thought it wouldn’t hurt to add some Dinteranthus Vanzijlii Pofadder seeds to the cart and three varieties of Conophytum! I’ve been wanting to try Conophytum for a while and figure I may as well buy the seeds in this shipment and save on shipping costs later.
I’ll likely hold off on planting these seeds until next spring. It’s getting kind of late in the season and I’d worry about them making it through the winter if they got a late start. It’ll give me something to look forward to next year and my current seedlings should be well on their way, and in need of less care, by then too. This is becoming a real addiction – haha!
I took inventory today. I have 74 Lithops seedlings. How did that happen!
The oldest seedlings are now 14 weeks, the ones in the large pot are 11 weeks, and the babies are 8 weeks. Holy slow growing Batman! I expect the oldest guys will start thinking about growing some adult leaves soon…our next milestone. Everyone seems to be doing well, especially the youngest ones, so I’m hopeful I’ll have a nice little collection in a year or two 🙂
