Lithops hookeri var marginata C035 (100 seeds)


3 in stock

Lithops hookeri var marginata C035 (Mesembryanthemaceae). It is distinguished from Lithops hookeri for the upper surface usually rust-brown, with olive-green windows and top part of surface slightly rugulose. However it is the more variable variety for face colors with a tendency to broader grooves which often widen into channels and open windows occasionally even into partially open windows. 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: Hopetown. Harvest: December 2023
