This one's easy - one of my favorite genera!
This one is either Haworthia attenuata, or Haworthia fasciata - these two are very similar, and are mixed up in the trade, so without really close examination it's difficult to identify them.
However, they both need the same care.
Although they look very similar to Aloe, they need much lower light levels (if it's too bright for them, they'll turn orange) and a little more moisture.
This makes them a good plant for the beginner grower, as they're very forgiving of slight overwatering.
See the page on Haworthia for more information.
