Some 1-2 month old Springbokvlakensis

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

Just googled them, they will be lovely, good luck with them.

Very much on a steep learning curve, just love the huge variety and how different succulents can be from one another.

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.

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.
