Re: Veltheimia virus?

I try spotting the yellow marks you mention, but I don't see anything out of place. I guess it is me. Are you sure these are not normal yellow marking that are part of the pattern of the leaves? But anyway, you can always cut off the leaves and ditch those, instead of throwing away the entire plant....

Re: Transplanting Lithops seedlings

They don't need repotting, at the looks of it.
And be aware that repotting Lithops is a risk. I have lost many of them after repotting. The roots get damaged, and if you water early or even many months later, they suddenly might rot after their first watering.

This plant was from seeds I got from you, Aiko, back in 2013.
I already thought it was!

You can always cut off the elongated growth above the soil, if you don't like it.

There is also some confirmation: https://www.pacificbulbsociety.org/tbg/v16n2.pdf So not their (grand)children then. Ondine Schrick has worked for Silverhill Seeds for twenty years.

Re: Ariocarpus Scapharostris - time to repot

At least there is not risk of rot due to overwatering, as there is hardly any soil left to be wet for a long time...

Re: SilverHill Seeds

I understood today that the Silverhill seed business will be carried over to their (grand)children? Don't know how accurate this news might be. Anyone can confirm?

Re: Glochids

I have heard about candle wax. Never tried it myself. I hardly have Opuntias. But if it happens to me, I try tweezers. And where that doesn't help anymore, I just ride it out. Whatever you do, don't use your teeth to try to take them out. If they end up in your tongue or gum, it will only be much wo...
