Very impressive Mark. You seem to do well with the Asclepiads as well. I can't access your facebook page. Do you sell cuttings / offsets?

Hi Paul,

Yes they do grow well, I only have around 4 different types as they have multiplied over the years .
If you want some cutting, offsets just message me.

What a tremendous collection Mark. Really awesome! I wonder if I could ask a couple of random questions of you please. I grow a lot of Lithops and I keep a pretty good data base of them on an app called CactusAlbum with unique ID for each plant and keep various data for each one. I print labels but I really like your format and your actual label.
Do you have a certain printer, and format you use? Mine is a Brother with laminated labels that have stood up to the harsh UV here in New Zealand, but I have trouble finding a suitable 'standard' for what to include on the label and a matching template. Do you mind sharing what you use, and also the source of your actual plastic label?
The other thing I am curious about is how you sort your Lithops. I tried to do mine by species amicorum to werneri but I have mine on multiple shelves and then needed to move them around due to various factors like optica being later and caching the flowering ones together to ensure my pollination programme is efficient. I like how you have yours on one massive bench but I am stuck with multiple shelves due to space restrictions. Any thoughts on the best way to sort Lithops?
Thanks in advance.
Brian
