Oz Lithops seedlist update?

Postby mary44 » Fri Oct 20, 2017 2:12 am

Does anyone know when Oz Lithops are likely to update their seed list?. I thought I had either read an email or an update on their website saying it would be end of this month sometime but no clearer than that, and now I can't find where I read it. Having been beaten to some of the desirable species last time I am keener than usual to know when it might be :)

This is what's written in the circular email of 3 October 2017 regarding seeds:
"As the Sun continues to ripen seed pods, harvesting is already underway with cleaning to follow in approximately two weeks time. We hope to have our annual major update to our seed listing around the end of October or the first two weeks in November, weather permitting."

On the website it is written that for orders placed after 21 October the shipment will take place from 6 November onward, I can only conclude that we will need to wait until the second week of November to know when the new seed list be available.

I hope it helps.

Thank you :)

That must be where I read it. Fingers crossed we see it when it goes live.

It's all very competitive with Oz-Lithops. As soon as the new update appears, people start buying like crazy. I suggest you start monitoring the site about an hour before the time the updated list is supposed to appear.

I am trying to figure out what Dec 5th 2pm south Australia time is here in U.K while we are on GMT. I think we are 10.30 hrs behind them. so that would be 3.30am.. Oh just great....

2 pm are 14:00. The time in Australia/Adelaide is (GMT + 10: 30). Then it's 4:30 in Germany and 3:30 in England.

I need to calculate again, I understand they are 10 and a half hours ahead of us in the U.K. So if it is 2pm there as we are 10 and a half hours behind, surely that is 3.30am on the 5th?

Yes, it is a very inconvenient time for European buyers. At the last seed release, I connected to the Oz-Lithops website 10 mins before the announced time, only to find out that the sale was already in full swing and the most coveted seeds gone.
