It's pretty much all lithops, all the time -- in excruciating detail. (I might have a problem.) Consider yourselves warned. NJ USA Zone 6b/7a

Upon closer inspection, this tiny oddball is actually two #teenytiny #seedlings. 29 Apr 2019 #lithops #seedling #grownfromseed #fromseed #growyourown #gyo #gyolithops #twins

Now I finally get to see what this guy with the donut hole was hiding. I've never seen a #lithops with a hole in the top -- I thought for sure it was rotten inside. 10 Mar 2019 #lithops #seedlings #grownfromseed #fromseed #growyourown #gyo #gyolithops #mesagarden

These are in fact two separate plants, though it's hard to tell in this photo. They're quite etiolated, but they are not (alas) a two-headed #lithops mutant. 10 Jan 2018 #seedlings #grownfromseed #fromseed #growyourown #gyo #gyolithops

This #lithops #seedling popped his top! I helped remove some of the detached outer leaves so the baby leaves inside could get some light and not etiolate too much. 10 Jan 2018 #seedlings #grownfromseed #fromseed #growyourown #gyo #gyolithops

Definitely sun-stressed (hopefully not fatally) by my new grow lights. They also will have a rest under a Kleenex. #lithops #seedlings #grownfromseed #fromseed #growyourown #gyo #gyolithops 23 Dec 2018

Extreme #closeup of my #mesagarden #lithops mix. 6 months old. They didn't get enough light and they're very small. Still cute and still growing (slowly). #seedlings #grownfromseed #fromseed #growyourown #gyo #gyolithops

#lithops #seedlings #grownfromseed #fromseed #growyourown #gyo #gyolithops #mesagarden The largest seedling popped the top off the old leaves, and now it will stretch because it can't get enough light through its hat. 22 Sep 2018

Noticed yesterday that this pot full of mixed #lithops #seedlings has greened back up after I let it get blasted with too much bright sunlight! I'm so glad because these were my #mesagarden seeds and I was so mad at myself for hurting them. Lithops are tiny, but they're tough and they want to LIVE! #seedling #grownfromseed #fromseed #growyourown #gyo #gyolithops 6 Sept 2018

With a matchstick for scale #lithops #seedlings #grownfromseed #fromseed #growyourown #gyo #gyolithops This is what sunburned/sundamaged seedlings look like -- they turn kind of peach colored. Some of them may still survive, so I'm not giving up yet. This is my seed mix from #mesagarden and so wish I'd been more careful.

My 8-week old #mesagarden #seedlings seem to not be doing very well. They're yellowish instead of bright green. Maybe too much sun? These guys get bright afternoon sunlight pretty much from noon till 6-7 pm. The light is filtered through Kleenex taped to the windowpane but maybe that's still too much. #lithops #seedlings #grownfromseed #fromseed #growyourown #gyo #gyolithops

Update 17 June 2018: I moved these over to a windowsill that only gets morning light till about noon. Hope they perk back up.

These are my #mesagarden mixed lithops seeds. They're not as bright green as I'd like, which was the main reason I swapped the paper towels on the windows for kleenex. #lithops #seedlings #grownfromseed #fromseed #growyourown #gyo #gyolithops #livingstones #succulents #windowsill

Have the seeds grown through the gravel? 🤔

No. I sprinkled the seeds on top. @shaz1970

On second thought, this might have been a mistake.... If these are only half-germinated like the other pots I'm definitely in trouble. (But they LIKE being crowded, right?) #lithops #seedlings #grownfromseed #fromseed #growyourown #gyo #gyolithops #mesagarden

Sowed the rest of the packet of 500 mixed #lithops seeds I bought last fall from Mesa Garden. #mesagarden #plantmarkers
