Hi Chris,
Before i send you a jiffy bag for seeds do you have in stock the following
Copiapoa humilis
Lithops pot luck
Lithops salicola

if so i will send a bag inside a bag with a stamp affixed.
Thanks for your help.
Thank you .

Hi Maurice,
There should be some Lithops in stock: I sent some home-produced seed to Chris a few weeks ago, so I hope they are now in the Pool :)
Best time to sow Lithops in UK is in spring, IMHO and in my experience. Lithops (indeed almost any mesemb) seed has long viability. (Pity that is not so for Haworthia seed...) Lots of advice already on Lithops seed sowing, on this Forum and elsewhere on the internet.
Ever hopeful, trying to grow plants from arid sunny climates in the UK!
Lithops, Haworthia, Adromischus, other south African succulents including Ceropegia and some Crassula.

I'm going to be away from 26/9 until 15/10, but not on a cactus trip! So I won't be handling any requests for seed.

But if you wnat seed, don;t wait, send me your requests as I shall deal with them in date / time sequence when I get back.

How should seed be prepared? Do I just get it out of it's capsule(s) and send it bulk or pack it into little folds of 20 ish seeds?

I have mainly Lithops seed, all home produced.

Ideally into lots of about 20 seeds, Geoff.
Sorry for the delay in answering, I tend to regard this thread as not a conversational one, so haven't checked it of late.

I will get it done soon and send them to you.

Can I check (shouldn't buy see for next year, still got this years seed from journal :???: ), but,is this list update? Also can you confirm how much, and how to purchase, seed from this list again I am sure you have done it before. When will more stock be added?
