Little white dots...

by Bill
(Anchorage, AK)

It is comprised of thick bulbous claw-like pods that grow from the center of the plant.

It is only 2-3 inches tall right now. I have had it for three or four months, and I can't even tell if it's grown an inch.

The distinguishing feature are the white dots that run the length of the claw-like pods. I feel like it had "pearl" or "pearly" in the name, but I have searched and searched to no avail. Please help.

Hi Bill, this would be one of the Haworthia in the fasciata group.

There are several, the most commonly grown are Haworthia attenuata, and Haworthia fasciata. This one doesn't look quite the same as those two, but it's evidently close. There are many species in this genus, and they can also make hybrids quite easily. Luckily, they're all quite beautiful and interesting.

Hope this helps get your succulent obsession off the ground!
