I have been looking on the net for hours, and I cant find this exact haworthia anywhere. Maybe I am looking in the wrong places, or maybe it isn't a haw. Can anyone tell me what it is? Thanks.

If you haven't tried this one yet, here's a page that might be helpful. Or just overwhelming.

I'm not a Haworthia expert, but I'd say that was a hybrid involving H. truncata.

Hi Eclipse,

Shrubs is quite right, that IS a Hawrothia of some type of truncata or truncata hybrid.

I might add quite lovely, I've never seen one w/ rounded, curved leaves like that. The distinctive characteristic of H. truncata are those sort of chopped off looking leaves, mine are squared off, not round as yours & some folks refer to how they look as sort of the spines of books if you now what I mean.

Yours looks healthy & happy, I commend your good growing & suggest you keep doing exactly as you have been.

Yours is similar to the Haworthia cv. 'Whirlpool' truncata hybrid that I bought earlier this summer from the 2006 ISI at the Huntington. It's quite beautiful, as yours is.

Thanks everyone! Yeah, that last pic "whirlpool" does look like mine. I am thinking about checking with my brother who works at the greenhouse where I got it. Apparently some guy has a huge cacti and succulent collection in one of the buildings there. I wonder if that is where this came from, or if they ordered it? I guess I just have to go in and ask sometime. I am there all of the time, I just forget:o) Thanks again for the help.
