Haworthia turgida

This perfect little plant is intent on sending up an inflorescence in the dead of winter. Is it confused? It's been receiving natural light ever since I brought it in this fall. It also gets cool temps since it is in a window (south facing). I thought Haws bloomed in the spring!

It's normal, Amy. I have several in varying degrees of blooming right now, too. I think the only time mine won't bloom is in the hottest part of the summer. Otherwise, you can never tell when one will shoot a spike. A very nice specimen, BTW!

Thanks Denise. I've also got a small Gasteria in the basement that's sending up a spike. It amazes me how plants know when it's time to bloom, even if there are no windows in the room and the only available light is that from fluorescent bulbs on a timer!
