Parts are Pretty, Ever So Pretty

Here's a Haworthia hybrid - I've got it tagged as a hybrid of H. truncata x H. turgida. That may be wrong, it may be right; there's certainly truncata in the woodshed, I daresay. Regardless of its parentage, it's a pretty one, I reckon.

Yup, you reckon correctly: it's perty all right. Although, strangely enough, it also kind of looks like my toes when I stay in the bath too long... I'm wrinkling my brow in confusion right now, in case you can't tell from the tone of my writing.

But here's a question - did you grow this from seed?

Kind of interesting in a wrinkly way, has it flowered yet?

Dear Shelly,

Remind me never to suggest to you to stay in the bath too long, unless you have a secret ambition to become a herpetologist and grow some prehensile toes.

Nope, it's from a single head grown by someone else.

Dear GL,

I think it has - typical bland Haworthia flowers; the hummingbirds appreciate them more than I.
