I wasn’t going to upload a pic of the Stapelia seedlings this week, but I decided to quickly snap a few pics while I had the macro lens attached to my phone. I found this image oddly disturbing. It could be the dramatic lighting and angle. Or maybe it’s because this seedling looks like a troll with two little eyes, a nose and fluffy ears.
The Stapelia seedlings act just like the Euphorbias did and spread their baby leaves to make room for more growth. I love how much they resemble little feet and a tail, sticking up in the air!
Right now they don’t have much of a root system and keep flipping over if I’m too careless while watering them. Maybe I should stick with a spray bottle.
More seeds arrived! This time I found a small variety of carnivorous plant seeds (mainly Drosera), more Astrophytum seeds and these cute little buddies.
They’re already huge!
This little seedling is only 2 days old and nearly 1 cm tall. It hasn’t even lost its seed shell.
