Every single one of my Sempervivums are making babies! I didn’t expect them to thrive immediately after I replanted and separated them. They’ve survived weeks of frost, snow, rain, baking sunshine and high humidity, and they still have enough energy to reproduce.
Another macro, showing the bubbly cells on my Monilaria seedlings.
I spend so much time just keeping all of my plants alive. It’s really nice to be able to explore all of the tiny details of the life I’m growing.
They’ve grown a lot since last month!
I can’t remember the last time I properly watered them. Things are so much easier now that they need to be kept dry.
I found a cheapish macro lens for my phone, just in time for the Lithops seedling’s 10 month day. This little guy is the perfect test subject for my bad photography skills.
Some faint red spots are showing in the middle of the dark green area. This means he could be a green variety of L. Dorotheae. Can’t wait for the second pair of true leaves!
This little seedling developed its first fluff!
And look at those puffy cheeks.
I can’t believe I managed to keep them all alive for a month (only this one seedling is exactly one month old, though).
I even got the last of the 5 seeds to germinate yesterday.
Starting to get really nice and fat.
My Gibbaeum seedlings only just started to color up and grow. They looked like Lithops seedlings for the first 3 weeks, which is why I haven’t done any updates until now.
Gotta admit they’re adorable, though.
My bowl of baby/young adult lithops is getting slightly more diverse. One of the seedlings (the pale gray/peach colored one at the bottom) looks a bit like a conophytum because of the fused, short split and spherical shape.
All of the Faucaria seedlings are doing well after the transplant.
The second leaf pairs have already outgrown the first. I hope they develop their first teeth soon!
