I had to remove my little Lophs from the seedling community planter to give the rest of the plants a bit more space to spread out. Apparently Stapelias and Euphorbias grow much faster than these guys.
These Lophs look pretty good at the moment. The big one in the middle is 1,3 cm in diameter.
All of the plants in my mini dish garden are filling in nicely.
I love spending at least 10 minutes in the morning and afternoon just watching how everything is doing.
I’ve upped watering to about once every 1,5 – 2 weeks and the Lophs seem to grow at the speed of light.
The Lophs have enjoyed lots of sun and water recently, with the result of them looking nice and puffy. Just how I like them!
The biggest one (middle right) is almost 1 cm in diameter.
The Loph seedlings are getting increasingly harder to find between the stones on the surface of the soil. But they’re getting much bigger, much faster than before.
The Lophs are enjoying the longer days as spring moves closer. At one year, they’re only 7-8 mm wide, but seem healthy and happy regardless.
The stronger seedlings look pretty healthy! I’ve added a bit of top soil (pumice, zeolite, lava rock and leca) and lifted the seedlings up a bit, so they’re able to get some more sun and air around the base. The seedling in the lower right corner is proudly showing off its fat stem/root.
The Loph seedlings are nice and puffy after a recent watering. They’ve actually grown a fair bit since they were moved to a brighter location 3 weeks ago. It’s just really hard to spot without comparing images.
Some of the seedlings do look way younger than they are.
These are the 3 fattest Lophs in the batch. They’re a bit smaller than they’re supposed to be (currently 4-5 mm), but I’m just glad they’re still here!
These slow growing buddies will take forever to grow to adult size (not a fan of grafting), but they’re so cute, it doesn’t even matter.
