Pseudolithos migiurtinus, 5 months old

The surface is now even more covered by little bubbles, making the Pseudolithos migiurtinus seedling look like a baby toad. This is the only survivor out of all of my Pseudolithos seedlings, but at least it looks like it’s still doing well. The same thing happened last time I grew these from seeds. One seedling ended up being the stronger one, surviving everything I threw at it. I’m glad the survivor was a P. migiurtinus because now I have two different plants – this one and my 4 year old seed grown P. cubiformis.

This seedling can now handle staying in crispy dry soil for a while. I kind of forget about it and only water once a week when the soil has been dry for at least 4-5 days. Right now the weather is chilly and mostly cloudy, so the seedling should be able to handle staying dry for even longer than that.

Pseudolithos migiurtinus, 2 months

A few bubbles have appeared on the surface of my 2 months old Pseudolithos migiurtinus seedling. They’re so tiny! Right now I let the soil (diatomaceous earth) dry out for a day or two before I water again. They’re getting direct indoor sunlight for most of the day now and they seem to be able to handle it just fine. I guess my windows filter out most of the harmful rays. They’re still blushing a little bit, but that just means they’re healthy.

Pseudolithos migiurtinus and cubiformis, barely 2 months old

Look how adorable they are now! A couple more Pseudolithos migiurtinus seedlings have germinated since I last took a picture of them. Now I’m up to 2 P. cubiformis and 4 P. migiurtinus seedlings. Unfortunately, the sickly migiurtinus died.
I took a chance and repotted the two biggest plants. If anything goes wrong with the community pot, these two babies will be safe and away from mold/damping off etc. A 5 cm pot will be the perfect home for at least 4-5 years.
Right now, they’re all still living in my mini greenhouse under grow lights. They seem to be doing okay for now, but I will probably have to move them to my south facing window eventually.

Pseudolithos migiurtinus germination

The Pseudolithos migiurtinus seeds have started to germinate! I didn’t think these would have a chance because the seeds I received looked terrible compared to the ones I bought of P. cubiformis. Apparently that’s how they’re supposed to look. Hopefully the rest will germinate soon.

I’m going to keep them in my mini greenhouse for as long as the germination process takes. Pseudolithos like humidity and there’s no sign of mold just yet.

For anyone interested in growing Pseudolithos from seeds with me, here’s the guide I wrote a while back. It describes which growing medium I use, how much light they need and how often I water. It even includes a guide on how to care for an adult Pseudolithos.
The only thing I’m doing differently this time is that I use a grow light instead of a sunny window. The sun just doesn’t shine in Denmark this time of year.
