I think there may be a *few* out there chomping at the bit, waiting for this letter to make its debut! LOL

Time to show us your 'H' plants, folks! We know there are hundreds! Genus, species or common name...have at it!

Starting off with:

Have fun with it! Can't wait to see everyone's plants!

RE: Alphabet: Letter H

Great Haworthia photos. Amazing colors. I don't have any H plants, so I'll have to enjoy everyone else's.

RE: Alphabet: Letter H

Rosemarie, I agree with rina, such plump plants, they have that expectant look on them LOL...

That's a good thing of course .

I would guess its also that nice San Diego weather also, " it isn't fair." : )

RE: Alphabet: Letter H

I'm not going to this party until I also see Colleen's plants - I know I'm already beat up silly-headed by Rosemarie's haudacious Haws, I want to know exactly how much I'll be wanting to expand my collection of them after teatree makes her contribution.

Well, OK, as long as I'm here taking up space

RE: Alphabet: Letter H

I AM spoiled with our weather, Greg!

I am DROOLING, Jeff! Love variegated anything. That one is especially nice. Yes, Colleen...we're WAITING!

(I have more, just no time right now.) I'm sure Geoff will help us out too! Anyone have some Hatiora, Hechtia, Huernia, Houseleeks, Hoodia or Hylocereus??

RE: Alphabet: Letter H

Yay, this puts a little shine on this cruddy week! I don't think I'll ever get my hands on something as beautiful as that plant there of yours, Jeff. I've yet to run across a truncata, let alone a variegate. Not that my largely grocery-store-find little hybrids aren't pretty, but I still don't feel like I have many of the "true" forms. Ah, well, one day.

Ah, shoot, too many pictures. At the risk of being rude (hopefully not), I'll go for it, as I know I myself like seeing the shots.

Little Haworthia pygmaea (thank you, Matthew), H. chloracantha var. denticulifera, H. cymbiformis hybrid, H. x cuspidata, H. limifolia var. limifolia, H. attentuata var. variegata, H. venosa subsp. tessellata, hybrid with pups never-ending (two pics), H. attentuata, H. coarctata, a H. cymbiformis form that I should recognize, H. cooperi var. truncata, the H. cooperi var. cooperi festival, H. turgida var. suberecta (two), H. turgida f.variegata, H. coarctata, small I'd assume H. retusa form (two), larger H. retusa form, compact H. retusa, and H. cymbiformis hybrid (two). There are a couple more sittin' upstairs, but I'll wait to photograph the Haworthia limifolia var. ubomboensis till it has grown into a nicer specimen.

That H. 'Chocolate' really couldn't look any better, Rosemarie. And the others--some really big clumps there! (Some I want to slip a shade cloth over...haha, I'm wimpy!)

RE: Alphabet: Letter H

Rina, forgot to say (in a hurry, you know) I'd suggest you put your Haw in a smaller pot. It's swimming in there. I think it would benefit from a smaller home.

Colleen, Queen of Pristine...your plants are in perfect condition! Are they all indoors-in a greenhouse? I can see why you'd want to put some of my plants under shade cloth. LOL Yes, I am mean to mine-stressing them so. You have Gorgeous plants, beautifully photographed!! I love to see the windows in them.
Beautiful collection you have!

Thanks, Colleen. 'Chocolate' is a fave of mine-I now have 2! I am fuming that a snail took a big BITE out of my older one while I wasn't looking!

If you want to check out the following tweaks (IMHO) to your plant names...
On the 1st: add var. pygmaea (can't tell if it's f. major or f. crystallina)
One you have as attenuata variegata, smooth upper leaf surface =fasciata (f. variegata)
Are there 4 pix of festival? (hope I didn't get mixed up on the name order)
H. turgida v. suberecta is now H. retusa v. suberecta
One you have as turgida variegata looks more like a form of cymbiformis
Your small retusa looks like retusa v. turgida (like my red stressed-I couldn't recall the name when I was messing w/pix)
Your larger retusa looks like retusa v. longibracteata
Your compact retusa looks like retusa v retusa (compact form)
Last 2 look like a type of cooperi, not cymbiformis

My plants are (what you call) grown hard, with lots of sun, little water..and in my case...most severely under-potted. I need to run a few months of emergency triage!! =D Yes, it's okay for you to feel sorry for them! :P I like their California tans.

RE: Alphabet: Letter H

OK, so here's my "H" contribution. I've only posted 13 pictures just in time for this Friday!!!!!! I must say I agree with the other comments about Jeff's variegated H. truncata. It is definitely gorgeous! I'd love to find other hybrids like this and not necessarily variegated. I know there are a ton of Japanese hybrids that are just unbelievable.

Just a note: Pictures 2 and 3 are the same, sort of, plant. They are in the same pot. One side grows as the regular H. retusa (magnifica) acuminata while the other side as the 'variegata'.

Pictures 5 and 10 I've been told are the same hybrid, but then what do I know.... I'm only a 'Doc'

IMHO, your honest opinion usually would ring true. :) I'm so dang tired, honestly, that the typing/thinking has gone so out of the window on a couple of those. With attenuata vs. fasciata, the variegate is rough up the outside of the leaf; smooth and pretty on the inner leaf. So you feel it's a fasciata? My vague understanding was that the majority of forms out there are attenuata and H. fasciata isn't come across much, aside from the chronic mislabeling between the two types. But what I hadn't understood was that the roughness takes into consideration the inside of the leaf in addition to the outside..?

Yes, there are four pics of H. cooperi var. cooperi, the favorite child. And thanks so much, as usual! Good to know my guess of H. retusa v. longibracteata that I didn't have the guts to say may be correct there.

The Haws I keep in the house, partly in an attempt to keep them out of the pests' nest that the greenhouse can kind of become at its worst. Favorite cooperi is getting slightly stressed currently, but again, wimpy, so I feel badly for the poor thing and will usually move it back out of the harsh sunshine. I guess, I can't tan, so the plants need not, either. This is a non-tanning house! This is also a skin-cancer house, too, so. :o I'm careful with everybody.

Dang that snail!

Hi everyone! I am new to GW, although some of you may know me as Zone10 from DG. I am a certified C/S addict and am lucky enough to live in a place where I can grow outdoors all year. Looking forward to joining in the discussions here and there. I will attempt to post a photo of my favorite "H" plant, Haworthia cv. 'Hayashi'. I'll keep my fingers crossed that it actually shows up.

Welcome, Arid! Beautiful Haw!!

Howard, FABULOUS collection! I thought I had already replied to this! Must've been in my sleep! LOL (I know why-I made some notes on the names-will have to find it now. Eek!)

As usual the Haw's are spectacular. Welcome Arid or should I say Sue...she does not know the name game we played and I wanted her to join us here, because we have lots of fun.

RE: Alphabet: Letter H

Rosemarie, Nice Looking "H" displays,,one of my neighbors gave me some of these cuttings that look just like these, they didnt know the name and I thought this whole time they were an Epi.

The color on mine is simuliar but more darker magenta ( did I spell that right?) Do you happen to know what type mine would be, I know, I know you need a picture, I keep thinking that your sorta physcic Lol...

Arid

if you have any 'A' plants (or any other letter that a thread was started), you can still post them on that thread - it will come to the top & we all can see you plants.

Please do post any you have.

Hello Arid! Good job posting a photo your first time. It can be tricky until you get the hang of it. Good looking plants too! As Rina said, you can post on prior letters, so go for it!

RE: Alphabet: Letter H

Rian, your H. truncata var maughanii is very nice because it carries the 'maughanii' cross into the plant. Mine, picture 5 above, looks nothing like what I would have expected the cross to look like... and I purchased it from a very reliable vendor. Thanks for sharing.


 o
RE: Alphabet: Letter H

Doc, not certain what you mean - but mine is a true specie and nowadays one of the varieties of truncata. If you look at my blog link I actually have the locality of it there. Not certain what the hybrid would look like, but maybe it should be more truncata?
This one is H. magnifica var. acuminata jdv91/39, which means the clone amongst other things come from Gouritz river mouth near SE of Mosselbay.

RE: Alphabet: Letter H

Welcome again, Sue (Arid)! :) I will try to remember to add you to our recent gathering of people's names & handles list! And as others have said, you can add whatever plant you like to the other alphabet letters. There's no rule saying you can't bring the thread to the top again. Only...it cuts off at 100 responses (as we found out on the mugshots thread).

Greg, sorry I missed your earlier query! Yes, it would be best to see a pic...and no, I'm not quite that psychic! (Contrary to popular belief, I am NOT the spelling police. Or rather, only when it comes to spelling the plant's botanical Latin name correctly. And that would be so folks can easily find more info on their plants!) As to your plant...how large are the blooms? The ones in my pic are about the size of a silver dollar coin. I've never seen a darker magenta (yes, spelled correctly, BTW) bloom on these. Maybe yours IS an Epi!

Rian, all FABULOUS plants!! I have the 'Grey Ghost' as well. Love it. GREAT hair on the venusta!! Which Huernia is it? Or do I need to go to your blog for that? (Will do later, anyway.) :)

Howard, I would think along the same lines as Rian, in that your plant shows more of the truncata than maughanii. I have/had a similar looking hybrid. Also, as Rian said, maughanii is a var of truncata now. Maybe yours was a cross different by which parent was the "tickler" & which was the "ticklee". Hee hee! Nice plants!

Rian, in my Haworthia book by Rudolf Schulz, he says that Bayer suggested that var. acuminata (of magnifica) be put into H. pygmaea.

RE: Alphabet: Letter H

Even though the tag says one thing, I personally believe what I have is Haworthia truncata cv 'Sizunami'. And if you look at pictures 5 and 10 you'll see what I mean. I would love to get a H. truncata that used to be a separate species H. maughanii. Must admit, I'm not one for all the name changes, etc.... too old to keep up! So I trust all of you will put up with my nonsense...... please?


 o
RE: Alphabet: Letter H

Thanks for the comments.
Oops, sorry - Huernia zebrina. As for Haworthia, the names jump around like popcorn on a hot plate. Grey Ghost is also called various names and so we hop on...as for now plant list and Sibis say its accepted but tomorrow - who knows..hehehe.

You refer to this from bayer: H. pygmaea var. acuminata (Bayer) Bayer, comb. et syn. nov.: H. retusa f. acuminata Bayer in Haw. Handb.: 53 (1976): H. retusa var. acuminata (Bayer) Bayer (1982): H. magnifica var. acuminata (Bayer) Bayer (1999). Type: N of Gouritzmond, Bayer in KG 311/7 (NBG). *H. acuminata.

Do not take this the wrong way - but if I look at all the original people on the back of the names I see bayer, bayer, bayer --- maybe he want to do a new UPDATE - book!? LOL! For me, I am happy to know the origin so that I know the environmental conditions and understand the plant better (maybe - lol) It seems haworthia will re-write itself a few times long after I am not "here" anymore. I do keep an eye on it, but that is about it - for now.
