I've got 19 at the moment so hopefully there will be plenty to share around in a few more months, as long as I don't kill them all!

I guess mine could use more light, they're half the size of yours! When did you sow them? Mine are about 2.5 months old at the moment, and some aren't looking great, I reckon 5-10 might make it in the end, and rather towards the lower number.

I sowed them on the 13th March and they started coming through in a few days. They were on my propagator that is covered at first and with heat on during the day and off at night and with an LED light. I pricked them out a few weeks ago (I think!). They're now in my conservatory where they get direct light only for a few hours in the evening, the rest of the time it's bright(ish) indirect light.

Still much much bigger than the 3 plants in total (Pachyphytums) I got from the Koehres seed.

I'd be more than happy to do some swaps for one, as none of my seed of this came up.

Thanks!

No problem Ralph, as long as I don't kill them! Happy to share them with anyone who shared the seed or swap with others.

I’d also be happy to do a swop for a G. filiferum at some point, none of my seed germinated either, it was the only plant I wanted :mad:

They are doing really well!
My various Crassulaceae are a bit behind, I didn't sow straight away, but I think I've got some germination in all 3 of my types.
