Too much variegated, isn't it !

Post by stephania » Sun Nov 19, 2006 4:06 pm

Hi Haworthia fans,

These pictures of variegated H. limifolia came from our local Cactus & Succulent Show,
Bangkok city, Thailand, two years ago.
Please, don't ask me, how did the grower take care of them,
especially that nearly solid yellow one !!!

These are pretty good combo !

But more yellow glowing here !

Very nice, I would imagine they are not as chlorophyll free as they appear, but have the chloroplasts spread very thinly, some of these appear to be very lightly green tinged.

A single headed normal varigated plant would fetch ?50 plus on Ebay, I would hate to think of the value of these.

Hi Stephania


They are fabulous & still on my wish list, thanks for the photo.

What was the category ? as by the spacing they aren't one plant & in the Uk you can put in specimen plants but it should be all in one clump, how well did it do in the show ?.

varied collection of succulents and cacti but I especially like Euphorbia's and variegated agaves.

Hi Tina

Limfolia spread by stolons rather than "offsets" so they spread rather than clump. so they could be one. I have nigras and tessalatas that show the same spread.

Hi Bill

But I'd expect them to show more variation in size ? wouldn't you, perhaps your right .

It would still be interesting to know what categories they have in there shows

As Bill said, this species, normally, send a long underground stolon
and shoot up the pups around the pot.
In the show, they was categorised into variegated succulent section
and the first one took the best of show in its section.
