Frithia kids update

It's time to update you on my Frithia humilis seedlings (sown in June 2012). Over the summer, in which we have had hot t° and lots of sun for a prolonged peroid of time, the seedlings stopped growing long leaves they did before and changed their appearance to match the conditions thus looking much more like adults in their color and shape. Moreover they started to hide in the pumice stones whenever it got to hot which is a very much appreciated sight for any Frithia enthusiast. The plants react well to water but quickly return to their "short-fingered" state with old leaves fading into bright red color. That's exactly the habitat-like behavior and looks I was hoping for!

Click on the "frithia" label below and scroll down to see their development from seed to today ;)
