It's a very nice cultivar indeed, I've only one, grown from seeds - but all brothers and sisters died ... not easy to grow as seedling and one of my favourites in fact - I nearly could say the best.
Instead: I never bought seeds for more than one Euro a grain and will do so in the future.

That's my plant

They are mostly not as dark as Limania's. I have some dark ones growing and even they have a green one in the middle of them. If you pay a lot of money for the seed and they come up pale colours or green then you may be disappointed.
I have found that they are not too difficult here but I do give them a little less water than some Lithops.
If you try them let us Know how you get on.

I saw them on eBay and the price keep raising. The colors are beautiful so as the patterns. I keep telling myself not to buy lithops that are too expensive since I am still learning how to grow them. The temptation each time I look at it :twisted: is killing me!!!

Keep calm - even between seedlings of my own cross breedings of different "dark" cultivars there are only a few "excellent colors" ... so if you buy f.e. 10 grains, you may have an expensive invoice but more or less worthless plants :!:
