Well, I thought I would have more time to research lithops, but my seeds germinated in 4 days! I need to get some help asap so I can buy supplies this weekend.
My plan was to build a mini lithop patch/zen sand and rock garden. Does anyone know the minimum pot depth for lithops? I have a 2" deep bonsai container that would fit the master plan, but I don't know if it's deep enough.
It's currently germinating in a plastic blueberry containter with 80% pure playground sand [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/wink.gif[/img] and 20% peat at the bottom and sides to prevent the sand from running out. I've read that the mixes should be about 60-80% sand with the rest being peat. Does this mean mixed throughly, with a thin layer of sand on top?
I also live in so cal, and yuccas, agave, scrub, and prickly grass things grow naturally on the hills behind my house. Soil analysis for about 2 miles away says "silt, silty sand, loamy fine sand, sand with gravel and cobbles, lesser deposits of clayey silt, granite, sandstone, shale, basalt" Would this stuff work?
Thanks in advance! [img]http://www.**********.com/iBhtml/non-cgi/emoticons/biggrin.gif[/img]
