Lithops lesliei var. minor (Mesembryanthemaceae) It has an oval outline with a dard reddish-green colour and is normally very smaller than the other lesliei’s. Sowing: The small seeds can be sown in pots of fine, well-drained sand, any time during the summer months when temperatures are warm. Cover the seeds with a very fine layer of grit and water from below with a fungicide to prevent damping off. For the first 3-4 days cover the pots with a sheet of glass/clear perspex to keep the humidity levels high. Remove the glass and replace it with light shadecloth and mist once or twice a day for the next two weeks after which most seeds should have germinated. From then on mistings can be reduced to every second and then every third day as the little plants grow. Locality: Swartruggens. Harvest: Nov 2018.
