Lithops vallis-mariae C238 (100 seeds)


Out of stock

Lithops vallis-mariae C238. This peculiar species is characterised by a minutely pitted top surface, which appears uniform to the naked eye, consists in reality of a large number of ridges with vermiform convolutions. These peculiar vermiform ridges have the appearance of fine sintered limestone and only found in this species. 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: Shirley. Harvest: November 2021
