Hello. I have many varieties of Lithops Seeds. I ordered them from Sweden. Interested in seeds? Or just plants.

I'm willing to try seeds, let me know what you are interested in.

I wouldn't mind giving
Trichocereus peruviana crested a try. Check out my list to see what else I can seed with the 20+ kinds of Lithops. What is the size of it?

RE: WANTED: Wanted: Lithops and Conophytums

The crested piece is rooted and about 6" to 8" across. I'll measure it when I get home. I would be interested in the Echeveria and as many of the Schick hybrids I can talk you out of. Please see my trade list, in addition to the cacti listed, I have a fairly large number of Epiphyllums that could yield cuttings or even whole plants and an even larger number of Orchids, Cattleyas, Oncidiums and Dendrobiums of many different varieties.

LMK, Nick

Sorry, scratch the Echeveria, I was thinking of Sanseveria.

I have about 10 hybrids that are ready to go. Plus the Lithops seeds. (VERY easy from seed.)

As far as Epi's, I don't have many of those. I am looking for one called "3 Oranges" and really any kind that blooms orange, purple, and one called "Clown".
Orchids would be very nice, but I need to pass on that. I like them, but I am afraid I would start collecting them too... :)

Hi Mike

I have '3 Oranges' and 'Clown' I could send you these. Let me find them tomorrow and see what kind of plants they are. I know that 'Three Oranges' just bloomed out of season, not unusual for this plant; nice brilliant orange. I have no idea what 'Clown' is like, I have to locate it. I have a number of plants that bloom in the colors you desire. Would you like a larger number of cuttings or whole plants? The other plant which has been sought after is Opuntia argentinea aka Brasiliopuntia brasiliensis, I have a nicely rooted 1' tall little tree of it.

LMK, Nick

I think I'd be interested in a plant of the 3 oranges for sure. That one is hard to find, and my personal fav. And then cuttings of whatever you'd like to send...

Email me...

Here is the situation on these 2 Epis:

"3 Oranges" has 6 shoots and a well developed root system, it has bloomed for me once about 4 weeks ago. There is a second plant which has 2 well developed shoots and is rooted. You can choose either one.

"Clown" had a rot problem at the base of the main plant, it now appears resolved and there is a weak new growth. I made a cutting prior to treating and rescuing the main plant, the cutting is now rooted and is starting its first new growth. I would not recommend the main plant, take the cutting.

As I said I have other plants in the colors you like. I don't know how big the hybrids are so I would prefer if you would structure the trade, let me know what you would like me to send you.

At the present I'm sending:
Trychocereus peruvianii crested, 6" x 4"
"Three Oranges", rooted plant (Choose one)
"Clown", rooted cutting with new growth starting
Unspecified Epi cuttings or rooted plants, to be discussed.

That sounds great, Nick. I would like the 6 shoots plant of the 3 oranges. This list looks great. Please email me off group, so we can exchange addresses.

Thank you...
