Re: Mesa Garden or Oz Lithops

They are in their early 30's... did they start at 10? I take any statement by Steve Hammer with a grain of salt. :D

Re: Mesa Garden or Oz Lithops

The new owners of Mesa Garden worked for Steven Brack,before they bought the business. Yes, they did, but as high school students in the summer. It's a different story if a person is on staff and has responsibilities about preparing orders and delivering them. However it's good to hear from Brom th...

Re: Mesa Garden or Oz Lithops

MG is still in a transitional period from Steve Brack to the Morerods who inherited an archaic web-based system. I also think they are overall inexperienced in the seeds business. On top of that last year they recorded a massive increase of orders which mainly came from China. I believe we need to g...

Re: When things get hot

I tend to believe that, once you transplant a Lithops, the plant needs over a year to get used to its new pot. I bought a fair few Lithops from growers in colder locations. Only the second change in leaves produced a significant (~60%) multiplication of plants.

The results are great! You can't expect all seeds to germinate at the same time, even if this should happen most of the time.

Happy New Year

Another year has quickly passed. I was happy with the results from my adult Lithops. I had a number of seedlings crossing the 16 months age. All the very best to all my fellow Lithops growers. I hope 2018 will bring more successful growing!

Re: When things get hot

I plan to pot my Lithops into a 22 cm deep pot. However, I will fill the 8 cm with very coarse scoria to avoid moisture to accumulate there. A friend of mine, who is an experienced Lithops grower, has measured Lithops roots as long as 14 cm. The stronger the rook system is, the stronger the plant sh...

These are all in 10x10cm pots. I prefer 12x12cm pots. The extra soil makes an huge difference in there ability to handle heat.

I totally agree about depth of pot as capacity of handling heat. How deep are you 12 x 12 cm pot?
