Argyroderma pearsonii seedlings

I recently sowed argyroderma seeds. I had ordered conophytum calculus seeds, but somehow the shop where I ordered them did not have any calculus seeds (I keep asking myself why they couldn't tell me this until after I had ordered...). So I took argyroderma seeds instead.

These are some of the seedlings:

  1. Can you detail the conditions you used to carry out the sowing? I can't find many details on sowing argyroderma on internet.

    1. As far as I remember I sowed them under the same conditions as I use for sowing Lithops (you can find details here: http://plant-whisperer.blogspot.de/p/lithops-facts-and-trivia.html#growingLithopsAtHome)
      I did it this way because I, too, couldn't find much on sowing argyroderma, so I tried it with my Lithops-method and was successful. Today there is only of the argyroderma left, but he/she is doing really fine.

      I hope this helps a little.

    2. Thank you for your reply. I'll try the lithops-method then. I ordered an argyroderma mix seed packet. I should receive it on Monday or Tuesday...

    3. Good luck with your seeds! Hopefully you'll get some different argyroderma out of that mix. They're really gorgeous plants.
