Any takers?

Hello everyone! It's been a while again. Tough times I'm trying to somehow overcome without slipping into full-blown depression. Taking care of the plants doesn't really help but I'm doing it, just like waking up, eating, working, buying groceries. Things you just do.
Recently I bought some plants I wanted to have but had to buy a whoooole lot just to get several I actually wanted. I was wondering if you would be interested in taking some of them of my hands and help me with the costs a little (20 cents for smaller plants, 40 cents for larger). No idea how much the shipping would be at the moment but I'd do it as much "economy" as possible. I also don't think I'll be able to send anything outside Europe...

Here they are. Some small L. olivacea. You can choose by numbers if you like. (UPD: ALL GONE!)
Some L. salicola (from their looks). Salicola don't grow at my place so there's no reason for me to keep them. (UPD: ALL GONE!)
As well as L. jullii (I think). The one with "undigested" old leaves has two heads inside. (UPD: ALL GONE!)
Drop me a line if you're interested (my email is somewhere in my profile). :)

PS: I've sown Titanopsis and Stomatium from own seeds recently. Those of you who got Titanopsis calcarea seeds from me might be glad to know they germinate nicely.


  1. Rika, I'd love to take some of those Lithops off your hands, but our Agricultural Inspectors, bless their hearts, will not allow it. Still, hope your life becomes more peaceful, tough times are everywhere! Hugs from Florida,

    1. Thank you Marla :) You have to try and believe in a better future no matter how dark it is in the present...
      Yes, I doubt the plants would go through the US customs. That's too bad.
      *hugs back*

  2. I'm sure you'll get takers on your Lithops. And...that things will get better for you. Hang in there.

    1. Thank you Luther, I'll try. True, with some patience things should get better one day in the future. I'll just need to survive the present.

    2. I have no doubt you'll survive the present. I understand how tough things can feel at times; just know there are those of us out here who care and are rooting for you. Your long-distance friend.

    3. Thank you so much! Your words are very comforting because unfortunately it feels like I'm all alone in the world. It should pass...

      I also wanted to congratulate you on your anniversary. You are so lucky to have each other. The way you selebrated is the best way to selebrate, in my opinion :)

  3. Rika,

    You do not deserve to have a depression. You're a young girl, with the studies finished and I'm sure you are going to be a very good professional future. I know this because only have to see your collection of Lithops to know that you'll do well anything you like.

    As for your little Lithops for sale, I have a lot of plants of these species in my collection. So, at the moment, I'm only interested in five species:

    L. comptonii
    L. geyeri
    L. meyeri
    L. ruschiorum
    L. vallis-mariae

    So I do not keep any of your Lithops. But I have contacted a few friends in order to know if they could be interested.

    Best regards

    1. So sweet! :) Thanks!
      You're right, there must be better times ahead. I really need to make myself believe that.

      I don't have those unfortunately but would like to have them oneday when I have a better and bigger home... From the plants above, every plant has found a home. Thanks for your help!
