This is how I know when to water my baby toes. When they wrinkle up like this, it’s pretty safe to give them a nice drink. It only takes a few hours for them to smooth out to the point of bursting, so make sure you grow these in pure grit.
My baby toes are quickly filling out their little seedling pot, but it looks pretty nice at the moment. I’ll wait and see how long I can leave them in there.
My little baby toes are almost 1 year old and they look amazing and plump.
My itty bitty baby toes are doing great. I’m watering approx. twice a month when they start to shrink and wrinkle.
It’s been fairly easy to grow these guys from seeds. At least so far.
I’ve heard so many stories about leaves bursting from overwatering, so I need to be careful. The “no peat“ method really is the best way to go.
I bought some Fenestraria aurantiaca seeds in April 2016 and finally decided to sow them a little more than a month ago, along with some Cheiridopsis, Argyroderma aureum and Oophytum nanum seeds from the same order.
The little Fenestraria seedlings just grew their first “adult“ leaves and they’re so adorable!
My old Frithia pulchra survived the summer heat with no problems.
He’s inherited the tiny pot I used for one of my small Pleiospilos since he hasn’t gotten that much bigger in the 2 years I’ve had him.
It’s a perfect match!
