Let's see your windows

ctreeteac(Zone 8b; rain-spewing Oregon)April 16, 2013

Let's see your best windows. With a teeny bit of spring sunshine, they brighten the room...or the yard.

Here are a few of my own.

H. cooperi var. truncata

H. cooperi var. cooperi

H. cooperi var. leightonii

H. retusa var. suberecta (though often seen as H. turgida var. suberecta)

I'd love to see your guys' beauties looking like glass.

Sure, I can explain for you what I do. Not much! They're shade or part shade plants, and these that are windowed and have transparency I find to be more delicate--doesn't take much sunshine for them to start to turn red, which appeals to some and not to others. I have most of my Haws in the house, except during the really cloudy days of winter, when they go in the greenhouse to receive more light in order to avoid them starting to stretch and lose their form. These are by a south-facing window, and they receive nice soft morning light. During the hot days of summer we get a lot of direct sun coming in that window all day, and at that point I tend to shut the sheer curtains until the heat of the day has passed, because it's my preference to keep these guys looking green.

I water thoroughly when the soil is basically dry. Some Haworthia I find like a little bit more water than others, and these I never let go dry long. (Granted, they need good well-draining soil.) With other Haworthia I decrease watering a bit during the heat of summer--because these are winter growers--but unlike what most do, I just haven't done that that with these plants shown and, for me, they really haven't lost their plumpness during summer inside the house. The last plant pictured in particular I find has shriveled leaves when I cut back water at any point and let it go dry a day or so, so I know I give it more water than others might.

The first plant is just a gem. I wanted it so badly, I can't tell ya. I hope yours does well for you.

When I first saw the title, I said to myself, "Self, I don't have windows for plants so why bother." Needless to say, I am glad I ventured to take a look. You all have very nice Haws and the photography is wonderful. You have to love windows!!!!!

now, if anyone has some different names for these, please come forward. I won't be upset.... promise!



I believe this one sometimes is called H. truncata v maughanii





If someone might help with a name for this.... please!

The only thing in my windows are African violets,in the bay window,and some kind of tall thin leaved plants in the west window.I can never remember the name of them,or even if I know it.Will have to post a picture of them for an id.

I like all the ones shown here so far.Most of my plants are grown outside.

Oh, that's not what I mean, Kathi. :) I mean the windows of like a Haworthia. The translucent parts where light streams through and creates a glowing effect. No need to worry about what's inside or out.

I'd love to see your friends' Haw collection, Howard. A lot of us would enjoy that sometime.

I agree with teatree on the H. springbokvlakensis. And I like the H. retusa var. suberecta. I don't have dotted haworthias!

"Thou shall not covet thy neighbour's haworthia" is not in the list. I checked!

Okay, I'll take a shot, since it looks like the one in my short list when I went haworthia crazy last December. Probably a Haworthia turgida var. longibracteata?

Run of the mill?! Wantonamara, it has red bits! How does it do that? Is that a light thing or does that specific species just randomly turn red? The pictures are very good, showing the windows quite well.

Also, my H. cooperi dielsiana did something shocking---it flowered. It's almost done now and I don't know what to do. Should I clip off the stem or will it dislodge itself on its own?

I think the red is because they got winter sun and cool temperatures outside most of the winter for at least part of the day (morning and late afternoon).. They are under a porch roof but the sun is low in the winter and it gets more of it.

The stress color red is a lovely sunshine effect. Some find it delightful. I try to avoid it, but I'm a nut for green.

I usually hold on to the plant and gently yank out (I know "gently" and "yank" suggest two different things, haha) the expired bloom stalk when the flower show is about over. Alternatively, some people would rather their Haworthias not bloom, but instead put their energy toward growing, and they yank the flower stalk when it's first emerging (the flowers aren't impressive, and I admit I've done that before).

But it's probably safest just to wait until the stalk is dying out, as I suppose you could have an accident with the yanking and break a leaf on the plant while holding on. If you leave the flower stalk alone after flowering, it will eventually die out until it's brittle--hollow, almost--and can easy be pulled out of the plant. I know a lot of people cut off the majority of the stem once flowers have expired, and then wait for the remainder of the stalk to go brittle so it can be easily pulled.

Mara, I don't know how you could not want to post those pictures. The H. cooperi looks fantastic. It's not as though I have any super-special Haws, either. Mine are all pretty run-of-the-mill too.

I've been wondering, Mara, has your Haworthia you bought, oh, maybe last fall doing well still? I can't recall if it was a H. bolusii or similar in hairy-looking nature, but I remember it was adorable. I hope it has done really well for you.

And the 'toes' are so precious. I've never had the guts to get some, but with a greenhouse, I am really tempted now.

Nothing like your awesome collection, but TYVM! That's what the excellent advice given here said, seems to be working, for what such measures can do combined with this weather. There's some dead plants in this thing, but Haworthias in particular look OK, 6 diff ones (but not all window type - wow this forum is awful for enabling!) I haven't watered this for about 6-7 weeks now.

Tomorrow is designated for a drink - very warm nights predicted until Wed, a couple nights flirting with frost, then back to spring tease.

And BTW, the metal objects are to hold the sheet up above most of the plants a bit. It's hard to get a good pic of this thing with all the white paint around it.

Did you find anyone to wash your windows yet? That's no small task - wow!

Hi Sundewd, your H. mirabilis mundula might actually be a H. pygmaea (it's got the nice rough texture on the leaves). H. mirabilis mundula has smoother leaves with jagged-edged windows.

What're all those little Aloe (?) leaves you've got going in that last pot, Jeff? A. arenicola? I also wanna get closer to that Gasteria in the center, and to its neighbors, the silvery little Gasteria twins. And that gorgeous variegated H. maughanii? Impressing everyone.

My truncata needs to hurry up and produce some offsets. They get so awesome when they do.

Really sweet H. cooperi, Sundewd. A variety I'm keeping my eye out for. I could have 400 different H. cooperis and not tire of them.

That is some incredible collection, Salt. H. 'Mirror Ball' is the biggest dream for me. I've seen it make its rounds on eBay, and I gotta say it's painful not to bid.

I have just come to understand my lithops, having successfully grown them through a season and a half now. :) That seems to be the key with these rock plants... Have to keep them alive for a season or two so you can actually get a chance to learn about them. Unfortunately, all the literature on the web can't help you much with these plants, because while for me they may grow all year round, for you they may only grow during summer, spring or fall. Perhaps in the dead of winter. They are funny that way. The argyroderma still have ne stumped though... No matter what season it is, here's what happens: they shrivel to the point where I think "surely they need water". So I give them a few sprays from a mist bottle. They proceed to either. A.) Not respond. Or B.) Rot and die. I am convinced they don't really grow in the wild and some lab somewhere makes them as some sort of sick joke. D.

Paul, thanks for the compliments! The Bulbine bruynsii is about 3 inches tall... it's a winter-growing succulent that loses its leaves in the summer, and survives underground with tuberous roots. It's one of the more difficult species to grow. I only just got it this past fall and I sure hope it lives and comes back next fall!

With Lithops, you just have to keep them dry all winter until the new leaves emerge and absorb the old pair, then water them now and then during spring and early fall (just light spraying during the heat of summer, if it gets very hot where you live). And they need good air circulation all year.

I love how these windows look like Martian eyes.

Here's a few more. Looking a bit rough from being outdoors all winter.




This has been inside though. It got wet by accident. I'm gonna let it dry so those layers on the smaller one will fall away.

And more baby toes, young clustering division from the ones shown earlier.

Here is one of my Haworthia... not exactly "windowed". I am not certain that the name is correct, so any other suggestions are welcome. Thx, Howard
