starting a Haworthia truncata collection

kuroc(z8 AR)June 20, 2014

On wednesday I got my first Haworthia truncata in the mail. I've been wanting one for a while. I got it from ebay.

At first I thought there was just one variety in the species. There was only one type on ebay when I ordered mine. When I looked a few days later there quite a few varietys available.

So I'm going to start collecting them and putting them on a table in front of a west facing window.

That's a nice variety of Truncata! Here is mine. It's a Truncata v. Tenuis.

Son't how much you are paying on ebay and I don't know if you've tried any of these vendors. I am not advertising or promoting any of the vendors listed below. They have various H. truncata hybrids for sale and I know they are first rate. I either purchased from online vendors or received them from friends. I've never purchased on eBay.
