Re: Lithops Growth

Hello Jamie, the new leaves you can see in the middle are growing using the goodness from the old leaves. They therefore will be smaller at this stage as they have not used all the old leaves. Even when the old leaves are dry they will probably be a bit smaller but will grow as thier growing seson ...

Sorry for asking questions of a newbie ;) My L. dorotheae was at least a 3/4 of an inch when I got it, but ...
