Lithops bromfieldii insularis C043


Lithops bromfieldii insularis C043. Small to medium sized intermediate form between var. bromfieldii and var. mennellii and often similar to var. glaudinae but without lustrous dusky dots. Face opaque, transluscent; slightly rugose, margins indistinct, irregularly dentate with mostly small peninsulas. Windows usually occluded. Channels broad to narrow, sometimes reduced to mini-windows; often with lines tailing off into the margins. Islands fairly small, irregular or reduced to indistinct flecks. Rubrications often forming a broken network. Shoulders, margins and islands orange-brown, pinkish, yellowish, greenish or brownish grey or greyish brown. Windows and channels transluscent greenish red, reddish green, brown or greenish grey. Rubrications bright to dull blood-red, purplish red. Dusky dots dull dark greenish grey. as for the margins or a little lighter. 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: Keimoes. Harvest: November 2023
