Pleiospilos nelii, or holy mackerel these things grow fast!

Sown on August 7th, and already over 2cm across* and getting their first set of true leaves. Seems super fast for mesembs, even compared to my other mesembs on crack.

* although I may have killed one when I went to measure it for you guys. Metal ruler + small plant + measuring in haste = bad for the plant


  1. Maybe it's the hot dry weather? If you have hot dry weather, that is. ;)

  2. Hehe, doubtful - all of my seedlings live inside under grow lights, so outside weather would have no effect on their growing ability. I wonder if the current soil mix I'm using is more palatable to the plants.
