Well fed

Last time I took pictures the dorotheae were a bit flat, they hadn't been watered before I took the pics. This time I fed them first.

Lithops dorotheae on July 23, 2010

So, what do you think? C124 or C300???


  1. beautiful!!

    the pale one and the last one are dorotheae as well? very interesting~
    my guess is C300, but no guarantee ;)

  2. Yes, the two pale ones are dorotheaes as well. My dorotheaes were real sleepyheads and didn't get out of their seed leaves for over a year! Some even for almost two years (I have no idea why).

    These two are some of those late ones. The one on the last pic looks like it's growing a new pair of leaves right now. That somehow makes them become gray. Also it's kind of wrinkly on the sides, even though I had just watered them the day before.

    I guess they really are a bit too yellow to be C124, which is kind of sad, because I like the c124 better than the 300.
    But I am too proud of my dorotheaes to not like them - no matter which Cole number they turn out to be. :D

  3. they were maybe slow but your patience was worth while ;) they are very beautiful now~

    also, their color might still change you know! i'm always amazed to sometimes see a completely different lithops after the annual change. as if they get bored wearing the same set of clothes/leaves every year :D

  4. Hello Petra :)

    I found your blog through Rika( and I love it. . There are not many blogs talk about lithops.

  5. Hi Bololoch, thanks for your comment and welcome to my blog! :)

    It's true, there aren't many blogs about Lithops...
    And, well, I want to write about all my other plants, too... but since the majority of them are Lithops and they are the most fascinating, they will probably always be the main players here in my blog.
