I have lithops and am getting ready to take the jump into trying to raise them from seed. It sounds a little easy but we weill see. The other one that I am going to try is ASTROPHYTUM ASTERIAS cv. SUPER KABUTO cactus. There are several forms out there and that form is my favorite. You might also look into Conophytum, they are similar to Lithops and some are very interesting looking.
I am going to get a seed tray and order some seeds when I get paid, if you get any of these take lots of pictures as they grow so that we all can enjoy your new plants.
Btw, the burpee kit is pretty cool with the soil pellets in it already when you decide to start your seeds. I got mine from Lowes and it wasn't too expensive. You just bury the whole cup in the soil when the seedling gets a few inches tall (it's made from coconut husk or something) so there isn't any root exposure. Not sure what kind of medium is in those pellets though . It even comes with a little organic seedling fertilizer in a packet. Should work for starting most plants from seed (not CP's of course).
i only skimmed though the thread but, well, what about air plants? err... sorry i mean "tillandsia"
Don't forget Ceropegia ampliata and Aristolochia gigantea.
Hmmm. Air plants are looking pretty cool. Might have to pick it up when I get my neps and red sundew.

oh BTW, keep them FAR away from your cats! mine love to play with them. (eat/mutilate them)
Caudiciform plants are nice
Don't have any cats, but I'll keep that in mind. The GF's been bugging me about getting one .
I bought 25 Mimosa seeds from an online vendor. Should be getting them any day now. Hopefully within a week or so I'll have 10 seedlings- I hear they germinate quickly.
