Haworthis venosa ssp. venosa

A question has been asked about the differences between Haworthia venosa ssp. venosa and ssp. tesselata. I don't have any ssp. venosa, but I'll post a habitat photo taken by David Martin. The main described difference is in the degree of reticulation.
Where the plants labeled "simplex" fall in this variable species I don't know.


  1. yo tengo la haworthia venosa. son muy lindas se parece a la de la foto pero no es la misma.
    cariños Marisol.

  2. Hi Marisol,
    Yes, H. venosa is quite variable. As soon as I can, I'll post a regular subsp. tesselata, a subsp. venosa we have in our collection, as well as the one other subspecies. All are quite nice.
    Always good to hear from you and I hope all is well with you. Peace. Luther
