I took pictures of my new seedlings first and then of the older ones. In the end one julii claimed all my attention for the rest of the day.
But before I show you what kept me and my camera rooted to the living-room table, I want to show you the other julii first.
I really love these white ones. The windows on top of the leaves look like they have been painted with white paint on a dark ground. Some julii even look like someone drew lines on them with correction fluid.
I don't know what went wrong here. It just came out of its old leaf hull like this. Doesn't seem to be hurt, just grew like this.
This is quite a strange one. It was this dark brown from the beginning and even with the new pair of leaves it kept its color. I have not yet been able to determine which number this could be.
Lithops julii on July 23, 2010
These are all julii var. fulleri and I got them on the rarity exchange in Essen 2009. There I also bought a pot full of marmorata, but the julii are definitely my favourites!
