new babies

We've had several sunny days lately, and, as impatient as I am, I decided to sow some lithops. Well, it's snowing now, so it was probably too early for that. Anyway, it was the second time I tried sowing on the same pumice stones I use for grown-up plants and the result is very good again: L. steineckeana (C388) 23 out of 24 seeds, L. lesliei ssp. lesliei v. lesliei 'Fred's Redhead' 12 out of 16 seeds. I guess I'll stick to this method for the future.


  1. Very nice germination rate...must be doing something right!

  2. thank you :) now the task is to keep them alive
