Haworthia emelyae

by joan obrien

Working on a project for school where one of the requirements is to put a common name for the above but I cannot find one. The only thing I have come up with in my research is the common name is - Haworthia. Is that correct?

Drought Smart Plants reply;
Hi Joan, yes that's correct - there is no common name; the only Haworthia that seems to have one is Haworthia attenuata/fasciata which goes by the name of Zebra plant.

I encourage people to use (or at least know) the botanical name, as this doesn't change in different countries, which might have their own local common name for a plant.

Good luck with your project!
