What might this be

Post by iann » Mon Apr 05, 2021 4:19 pm

These have grown from the Lithops sp Sperrgebiet offering on the MSG seedlist. Haven't heard any big fuss about a new species, but it isn't obvious what it really is. It has something of L. werneri about it, but the heads are already bigger than any others I have of that species. Probably something else involved. L. pseudotruncatella var riehmerae has been suggested.

It's a very pretty, delicate pattern Ian. Don't know anywhere near enough to offer anything more useful than that I'm afraid!
