Small and Yummy

This succulent has a slight resemblance to a lithop.
The leaves are not more than 2 inches and very plump.
They are pale green, and if you can see in the top left corner of the 1st photo this plants leaves are pinkish.
I got these at Home Depot in San Diego 2 years ago and have not been able to find them again.
My turtle is depending on this community since it seems that it is our last resort...
Oh, who knew that tortoises were succulent addicts too? This appears to be a type of Haworthia, probably some hybrid of Haworthia obtusa.
These are interesting because they have little windows (the clear parts of the leaves) to let the light in to be photosynthesized.
You might be able to find these at a specialty nursery, now you know what to ask for, or in your area, maybe seeds would be a good way to grow lots for your 'leetle fren' - who is very cute, by the way.
Hope this helps,
