At what stage (how big) can lithops planted from seed be transplanted? Mine are about 1/4 inch tall. Are they still too young. And, what can I use to get rid of gnats without harming the seedlings?

I think they are too small - I would wait until they were at least 1/2 inch.

You can get rid of gnats by watering less and by bottom watering, allowing the soil surface to dry a little.

Use sticky flypaper close to the surface of the soil to control fungus gnats. You will see visible results. Smiling
