MSG lithops ID

Post by Cactus Kid » Mon May 20, 2019 3:35 pm

I have these seedlings from MSG seed from, I think the 2016 or 2017 seed list.

Due to the label being misplace, can anyone offer an opinion as to their identity?

Lithops Bromfieldii cv. 'White nymph' would be my best guess.

If it is you have some very nice plants.

This is a link to one on sale on ebay from Tony Irons, they do look similar.

If not maybe a Lithops bromfieldii of some sort. I love their colour.

Could be 'White Nymph'. Certainly L. bromfieldii and it was on the 2017 list.

For comparison, and in confirmation (?) - here are my White Nymph (how do they invent these names?) from the 2017 MSG seedlist.

That's why they named it White Nymph. :???:

The name was established by a Japanese lithops grower, Mr. Yasuhiko Shimada. The "White" bit is from the flower colour which is white rather than the normal yellow of bromfieldii in this cultivar. The "Nymph" bit is anyone's guess, perhaps it has a specific interpretation in Japan. Although it is just a flower-colour variant, the body of this material seems subtly different to the standard bromfieldii.

Thanks Terry, I should have known that. Obvious, really. Not to mention lazy of me not to google. :oops:
