Hey everyone! I'm still alive, I've just been pretty busy the last few weeks. I recently had to bring my Lithops in because it's been raining just about every day. I figured I'd take the opportunity to post some pictures. It's pretty bright so the colours are a bit bleached out but I have about 4 different varieties.
At least eight have survived; I've noticed some pull beneath the substrate but return later when really stressed. I had twice as many planted after I moved back to Ontario. Unfortunately I shipped ahead of time and the person I sent them too wasn't a plant expert. Needless to say, about half of them died (the post sat upside down in a centimeter of water for a few days). They're still a bit small (averaging about 1cm) but I'm hoping by next summer I'll have some flowers. Then I can start some new seedlings!
