I'm potting up my Lithops today
i decided to put them in some of those white food containers and then keep spacing them when they get bigger cause i have limited space but it does get tedious.
unlike most plants i have i can grow these all the way to maturity cause they stay small.
Is anyone else growing these or similar succulents?

On PT I see all the stunning photos and descriptions of past and future travel with the International Palm Society.
Here’s the group of us on the unforgettable Sarawak, Borneo pre tour in 2016.
I recall times I almost did not sign up due to time, family and work constraints and costs involved.
However every time it is only the trips I missed that I regret.
And the friendships I have made across the world are at least as important as the sights and experiences.
I took my first IPS trip using hoarded airline points through a country I had to find on a map (Qatar) to a place of my dreams (Thailand) in 2012, based primarily on comments by Palm Talk users I had never met.
I am asking all of you now who have traveled anywhere on an IPS sponsored trip to post why you loved your trip(s).
Photos always welcome, but not required.

I understand the 2020 IPS Biennial will be held in Reunion Island. Do we have firm dates yet? When will the travel details be available?
Hello from Cali, Colombia. It is the evening of the Farewell Dinner, but I will take a few minutes to post some pics from the adventure. Bo (bgl) and I spent a few days in Bogotá in advance of the Biennial. We visited the Jardín Botanico de Bogotá and also went up the teleférico to the top of Montserrate to take in views of the city. The elevation of the city is 8,675 ft. (2,644 m.) and the top of the hill is 10,341 ft. (3,152 m.), a good way to acclimate for hiking at lower levels to see Ceroxylon.
In that many of us palm lovers have extensive collections of Madagascar native palms, it seemed appropriate to add this orchid to the garden in that it too is native to Madagascar. It is the first of this genus that I am growing let alone this species. Will be interesting to see how it performs. The recommended light from the grower was "bright", but I see information that this species grows in full light at high elevations ( up to 1500-2,000 meters) in habitat. Anyone else have experience with this species or the genus in general? If you have photos, please share, particularly of any flowers.
