Haworthia identification please

Post by Roatavator » Tue Oct 13, 2020 8:00 pm

I’ve had a large plant of this for donkeys years. Lost the main plant last year, I saved a couple of pieces.
Can’t remember the name. I seem to think it was a cross and the original plant was either monstrose or cristate, but the remaining pieces look fairly normal to my untutored eye!
Thanks everyone
Peter

I'm no expert, but I wonder if it might be Haworthia turgida or one of its varieties, or at least have that as a parent?

Yes Ralph! Now you mention it turgida rings a definite bell. Thanks.
Now you’ve got my brain cells active “pallida” also comes to mind. Is that also possible? Bear in mind I know absolutely nothing about Haworthia!

Yes, pallida is one of its varieties, and it looks quite like a plant I have with that name.

Correction: pallidifolia, not pallida.

Oops, I got talked into that... :grin:

There's a variety pallidifolia, not pallida...
