Thanks Allan! and marcours!
Marcours, this is always the case with Lithops: each species is beautiful in its own way! I have not had any L. vallismariae yet, 'Valley Girl' is the first. I have heard that they are difficult. But when I see this sowing then can not be talked about 'difficult'.

WOW... amazing result!!! They look great. Do you germinate Lithops seeds under artificial lights? If so, how long do you keep them there?

Hi Australian,

Yes, sowing is done with artificial light, more precisely that is mixed light from window + artificial light. There the seedlings remain until the first molt and 3-4 weeks longer. Afterwards, they will get more sunlight at a different place on the south side. Unfortunately there is too little sunlight for the African succulents in Germany...

Thank you for your reply. In spite of the artificial light, you are doing a great job! Well done!!!
