My little gem stones (aka butt plants or living stones) haven’t changed much since last time. In fact, they’re still on their first leaf pair, oddly enough. The important thing is that they’re alive and well!
I keep telling myself that the’re just about to split and reveal their second set of leaves. It’s hard to spot, but the two Dorotheae seedlings (top right and bottom left) have split a tiny bit.
These are all of the seedlings I have left out of the 3 seed packs I sowed a year ago. There should be 19 little healthy guys in the picture.
This was the batch that started my obsession with growing succulents from seeds!
My favorite little Dorotheae ‘Zorro’ is doing great! He’s certainly puffy enough to survive dormancy.
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 brainy guy is currently the biggest “adult” seedling of the entire batch. And he’s exactly 5 mm wide.
This little butt seedling has already mastered the art of camouflage. I only just noticed it.
My little butt seedlings are mooning the sun.
I hope the green seedlings will split soon. They really should have done so by now.
Breaking through the paper thin layer of dried baby leaves.
It’s going to take a while for these guys to completely shed their baby leaves. The split only opens a tiny bit more every week.
