Re: Lithops from Southern Spain

Hello David,

I have severe difficulties with growing L. viridis from seeds. Almost no problems with other species (except L. divergens).
Do you have any advice?

Herzliche Grüße aus Berlin

Re: Lithops villetii, old plant

Hallo Limania,

I think, those plants with four rout stocks are from vegative propagation.
Therefore I got no seeds and the heads look all the same.
I potted them into one pot and say, it´s presumptly one plant.

Herzliche Grüße, Jürgen

Re: Lithops dorotheae "Zorro"

Hello Marry, it`s a very nice L. dorotheae!!! But it`s not an adult plant, I`ve made the bad experience, that patterns might change. Hopefully the red lines stay that way. 'Zorro' is a difficult concept in my eyes, as it is a pattern bread cultivar. But your plant comes very close to what I would ca...

Lithops villetii, old plant

Hello, I want to show you a picture of the oldest plant I have. It´s "Lithops villetii, Köhres 1986", as the label says. The plant consisted out of four root stocks in two pots, when I bought them. The 25 heads look all the same and they produce no seeds when pollinated to each other, so I...

Re: Lithops hallii ????

Hallo,

L. hallii has a pale form, it might be something like that (C045).
The colour is like L. julii (reticulate form).
Unfortunately is the variegation not stable, it frequently disappears the following year.

yours, Jürgen

Re: Lithops 'Green Ivory' Matk´s nursery

Hallo Brom,

thank you for your feed back!
They grow really fast at your place.
Some seem to have a pinkish hint (3-5 plants), so I ask myself, if they are all the green cultivar.
Please keep us updated.

Herzliche Grüße, Jürgen

Re: Lithops verruculosa 'Rose of Texas'

Hallo Boris,

that´s a really nice colour!
I will have to wait for next year to see the other plants flowering.
I wonder, how many will have the right tint.

Litops virdis

Hello, does anyone have experiences with growing L. viridis? I´ve sown it several times, but at the moment only two weaklings survived. And an adult plant I bought became smaller every year and died. I treat them like all the other Lithops, but this seems to be wrong. Any advise? Many greetings from...
