Conophytum minutum, 5 months

I’ve been struggling with these. When I bought them I didn’t realize that they needed near constant care for ~15 months until they grow out of their cotyledons after their first dormancy.

I’ve got a batch of C. minutum, C. triebneri and C. vanherdiae under grow lights at the moment. They loved it outside on my balcony when it was a few degrees above freezing, but I had to play it safe when outdoor temps hit -4°C (just barely above freezing on my balcony) last night.
