    Hmmm, I do believe that "Hans" was the name given to a plant by a dutch based nursery, I believe it more commonly goes by the name of "Tina".
    Lithops care info: If you take care of it, it will die.

    Hello,
    Vertigo is correct. Its common name is "Tina" the plant is a hybrid from P. Zecheri x Agnata. Also called P. "Gina". A mexican ping, it can thrive very well in highland conditions. Flowers are a pale violet with a dark purple mouth and a yellow throat. Mine is 4 1/2 inches in diamiter, and is cabable of getting larger. It is a great plant to have. Good luck,

    Hello,
    General highland conditions are:

    Day Time: 75*F -85*F

    Night Time: 50*F - 70*F

    Humidity: above 60%
    ---------------------------------------------------------
    For the ping:
    Light: Bright light for 4-5 hours, or a 16 hour photoperiod, with artificial light.

    Watering: Use the tray system, or keep the pot in a saucer with water in it. Refill when it goes dry.
