Lithops hallii var. ochracea C039 (Mesembryanthemaceae). This species is fairly easy to identify and shows shades of reddish-brown with regular fine to broad interlacing network of blood-red or brown channels with few or many mostly small islands with scattered dots, dashes and hooks, occasionally with some longer lines forming a broken network and fairly distinct irregularly dentate margins. Windows and channels greenish, red-brown, reddish blue, orange-brown, or brownish grey. Shoulders as for the margins, or lighter, or milky, beige, orange or brownish grey. Rubrications bright to dull blood-red or orange-red. 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 mistings can be reduced to every second and then every third day as the little plants grow. Locality: Groblershoop. Harvest: November 2023
