EDIT: I meant "Lithops," not "Lithos." It won't let me edit the title--sorry for any confusion!

I have some Lithops seedlings that are about 2 weeks old but still tinier than the head of a pencil. When do I need to stop misting them every day?

Even at such a small size, are they able to retain enough water?
Keep going!

I would cover the container with a clear plastic lid and forget about them for a while. The baby plants will enjoy lots of humidity until they are big enough to be independent. Several weeks to a couple months if I imagine right (haven't grown Lithops but have grown succulents with tiny seeds).

For what it's worth, you can suggest a change to the title of any thread using the "Suggest a change" link underneath the text box... I have done this with the change of spelling you put in bold, but it will require admin approval to be changed. I tip my hat to you.

Thank you. I've been taking the humidity dome away probably 3 times a week. But you said to leave it on for several weeks?

I hope I didn't screw anything up too bad.
Keep going!

I doubt it. As long as you mist well before you put the top back on, you will probably be fine.
