Lithops lesliei rubrobrunnea C017 (100 seeds)


4 in stock

Lithops lesliei rubrobrunnea C017. It is a medium sized Lithops, easily recognized by miniature circular transparent windows forming a lecework in the opaque covering ranging in color from Brown Coffee to green grass, green grey, pinkish grey, rusty orange. Each growth consists of two leaves closely pressed together or united, except for a central fissure across the top, from which the large yellow flowers are produced. 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: Randfontein. Harvest: November 2023
