Wasn't expecting such a good germination with these but looking forward to them getting older! Some are growing their third set of leaves.

They look nice!
I assume these you got from me?

For me, this is one of the slowest and trickiest species to grow. One of the best ones that I have ever seen is this one photographed at a show quite a long time ago:

I was never a huge Haworthia fan, but I have taken to them a little recently.

Here are the survivors of my sowing April 2019 of Haworthia springbokvlakensis (Haworthia Soc seed).

No doubt I am doing it all wrong for best cultivation, but they seem healthy at least.

Thanks. I am sure you will. Yours look as though they are off to a fine start.

I can agree they can be really slow. Mine put out a dodgy new leaf so that will be there for a while.

Let me give you a tip, which I got from Bill Hildyard. I found this species tricky to grow until he advised me that it likes limestone. I added some to the compost and as top dressing, and my plant is now doing really well.
