Hehehehe... yes... it was on E-bay... This same deal you refer of, Nepenthesfreak. I ordered them yesterday and they were shipped today. So maybe by the end onf this week they will be with me ;D Other than this offer i do thing E-bay's Lithops are a bit expensive.
About Living Stones Nursery, i also plan to order from them, once an can test myself with these E-bay's Lithops. ;D Their prices are good.

I think I will order from Living stones Nursery, and maybe I'll consider trying some from seed. All I'll need is soil, and 6 bucks shipped for 100 seeds seems pretty fair. Good luck with your ebay lithops.

Thank you! ;D The pot is 8 inches in diameter and 4 inches deep. I read in an article that the good pots for Lithops must be 4 to 6 inches deep to allow the growth of a good root system. The truth is that most of the Lithops i recieved had long root systems. Well, long speaking in Lithops terms ;D

yeah I saw a few of those a while ago before I .... "discovered" how awesome they truly are. Funny how you look at a plant and say "that's nice" and then you see a bit more of it and learn about it and suddenly you're addicted! I went back yesterday and there wer no more . They were probably neglected anyway.

Ohh wow! I wish i could find on Walmart at least a common weed at $2.00.
I have tried not to get too hooked to Lithops. Though this genus has only like 40 species or so, each species has countless varieties. Labelling can be a long project, but a good thing is the wide viriety of colors and patterns ;D
wow, nice lithops, i've had lithops for a few years now, i am planning on sowing some of my seed that i collected from fertilized flowers, gotta wait till spring though now cause they need lots of light to germinate, sprinkle them on damp compost and dont cover with soil or sand, the seeds need light to germinate!

I germinated some seeds close to a flourescent bulb, with plastic wrap covering the pot, and with tin foil hung all around to reflect back the light. I got a pretty good germination rate, if that helps. Now the plastic's off and I just mist once a day. Very easy to germinate!
yeah, very easy to germinate, i might try that method, i might get a better germination rate, 60% last time (100 seeds) so will give that a try, at the moment i have all 60 seedling to myself haha, hopefully they should flower next year, and people call me selfish haha!
