Spring I

My lithops seedlings from Dec 13 are finally going through their first regeneration. I didn't use the right soil substrate and generally haven't taken the greatest care of them. They've suffered a few unplanned repottings due to being knocked over thanks to my clumsy positioning of them. But i'm glad to see a few robust looking ones amongst them and it's great to see some of their true colours emerging with the new leaves. The seeds were a mixed lot so it will be interesting trying to identify them! 

Our older lithops are also going through their usual springtime regeneration. Including this Alien lookalike and a pseudotruncatella that's splitting into a double head. Also a cacti and haworthia aristata in different stages of flowering.
