Lithops lesliei minor C006 (100 seeds)


1 in stock

Lithops lesliei minor C006 (Mesembryanthemaceae) It is very similar to the typical var. lesliei, but consistently smaller and with slightly different markings. Its bodies are more oval in outline, yellow-brown to rusty brown with a more shining surface. It looks like a dwarf flowering brain, with a big, yellow umbrella-shaped daisy flower taking its nourishment from the frontal lobes. 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: Swartruggens. Harvest: November 2023
