What's up with Larry? For anyone that doesn't know, Larry is the largest and self-proclaimed king of the Lithops. You can see him clearly in the upper-centre portion of the picture. He actually looks smaller in the picture because I took it from an angle. For some reason he is about 5 times the size of the next largest Lithops. I also noticed that there may be a new set of leaves coming. That or he's sticking his tongue out and taunting me because he's not actually a Lithops but some strange imposter! I was thinking it was just a seed from a large variety but it seems really different and now I'm not sure what's going on.
Now for the awe inspiring Conophytum. Oh wait, there are only about eight of them and they seem to grow slower than the Lithops. I'm not sure what went wrong, but this is what I've ended up with and hopefully they stay alive. At least one of them has damped off but few sprouted to begin with. The Conophytum are a democratic race. They understand sustainability and have chosen to sprout only the number of plants that can grow comfortably in the given area (so basically it's not my fault).
