Haworthia emelyae

OK, I would like some help, please. Have the two pictured Haws and both are labeled Haworthia emelyae. I know there are several "variations on a theme". The reason I'm asking is to get correct names and when I purchase other windowed Haws not to duplicate plants as I am strapped for room as it is.... I know all of you will offer to baby sit my collection.....LOL The thing I am learning about Haws, is that there are lots of synonyms, i.e, Haworthia emelyae var. emelyae is also called H. picta and so on. I am looking to get H. picta, comptoniana and laeta. So someone help me out here with some names.

Sure the second one might not be H. pygmaea?

RE: Haworthia emelyae

It certainly could be, Colleen. The plant on the right was purchased at a big box store and their supplier is Altman Plants in California. I know they have lots of people sticking tags in pots with total disregard as to tag and plant; so it could something other than the tag.

The plant on the left is looking mighty nice thus far.

Thanks Paul... and if it wasn't for your kind offering, I wouldn't have such a nice plant! I just would like more information about these because this naming thing is driving me....
