Singular Spikes with White Lines, one long stem protruding from middle
(Gold Coast, AUS)
Found this plant at a market for $2 and thought it looked nice. I'm curious to know what it is though...
Drought Smart Plants reply:
Hi Fraser, I love these little plants - there are a couple that are really similar, known as Zebra plant - the botanical name is Haworthia attenuata, or Haworthia fasciata.
They are unique in their requirements, which most people find out by accident when they try and treat them like Aloe, which they resemble.
They dislike the high light levels (which makes them turn orange) and low moisture content that Aloe are partial to, so keep them a little more moist and in part shade and they'll be fine.
Here's some more information on the many different Haworthia out there. Maybe you'll start a collection!
