These are my two biggest Obesa seedlings. They’re almost touching, so at some point I’m going to have to separate them and plant them in individual pots.
I haven’t watered for a month and they still aren’t wrinkling, so they’ll have no problems surviving a dry period until it gets warmer.
There’s a big difference between the biggest and smallest seedling. Small/big. Flat/round. Bright green/tan.
This is one of the reasons why I love growing succulents from seeds. You never know what you’re gonna get!
This big boy is now the size of a lollipop!
They’re all starting to lose some of their tan (the sun needs to pull itself together and show it’s face ASAP), so I had to supplement with grow lights to prevent etiolated growth.
They’re all nice and spherical despite the lack of light recently. I think we’ve had one sunny day in the past month or so, and the weather forecast shows nothing but rainy clouds for the next few weeks.
That one baseball at the top is growing much faster than the other 4. He must have stolen all of the nutrients from the tiny one next to it.
The Obesa seedlings are now bigger than glass marbles. I’ve been keeping them on the dry side for the past month and they seem to love it. They already behave like adults and flatten at the base when they’re desperate for water.
The patterns and texture have changed a lot in the last month. Just look at those tiger stripes!
Looking nice and fat. The baby ears probably played a big part in the speed of growth. All of the seedlings are taking a break at the moment.
