Hawthoria - but wich one?
Picture quality not very good I'm afraid.
I recently bought this Hawthoria from a DIY hardware/garden accessories/plant store. I think you can guess what type of store I mean.
I've bought most of my cacti and succulents here, as they are cheap and I can therefore get something each time I pass.
Trouble is as with a lot of places, they are neither labelled nor cared for.
This one has dark "maroony" leaves, but I now think this is probably due to neglect as I am convinced that they seem to be slightly more greenish since I've had it. I do tend to be a bit of a sucker for neglected plants as I get a lot of satisfaction seeing them slowly returning to how nature intended. I'll add a picture in the hope that someone can help me ID it. Thank you in anticipation.....
Drought Smart Plants reply: Hi Susi, I do know the kind of store you mean - this looks like one I've come across as Haworthia limifolia. You can see more about it here: Haworthia limifolia var. ubomboensis; there are many others, but this one looks the closest.
Hope this helps,
