Out of stock

Lithops aucampiae “Jacksons Jade” yellow C395. Bodies are medium to very large 25-55 mm x 20-40 mm across, obconical (upside down cone-shaped) upper surface truncate, smooth to slightly rugose, mostly slightly convex. Lobes often unequal conjunct with a shallow fissure between. Face elliptic-reniform. Margins irregularly indented with many peninsulas, yellowish to reddish brown, often more intensely coloured than the islands. Windows yellowish to dark reddish brown, usually with fine irregularly branched lines becoming gradually narrower toward the margins. Channels asymmetrical varying in size yellowish to brown, sometimes very dark. Islands usually clearly defined, very irregular, sometimes slightly in relief. Rubrications absent. Dusky dots dark greenish grey, variable in number, in the channels and small islands, but usually not evident. Shoulders whitish-violaceous, pinkish-grey or brownish. 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 shade cloth and mist once or twice a day for the next two weeks after which most seeds should have germinated. From then on misting can be reduced to every second and then every third day as the little plants grow. Locality: Ex Hort. Harvest: November 2021
