You should consider subscribing to Cacti_etc, the cactus/succulent
equivalent of the CP list. Cacti_etc is run from the same listserver that
hosts the CP list. To subscribe, mail to with
the message

                subscribe cacti_etc <your name>

You might also check out the Cactus and Succulent Plant Mall
(, which lists quite a number of US
mail order cactus/succulent nurseries, many of which sell Lithops (and
Dinteranthus, Conophytum, Argyroderma, etc). One mail order outfit that
specializes in Lithops and other mesembryanthem plants, but is not listed
on the plant mall, is "Living Stones Nursery" in Tucson
( (standard disclaimers). Good luck--remember not
to water your Lithops from the time they finish blooming until the
following spring when the old leaves have dried up.
