Haworthia truncata crassa

This is Haworthia truncata var. crassa. OK, the "crassa" part isn't accepted by many, but it serves as shorthand for "the big form" of the plant. These have been grown from seed produced from two of the larger plants in David Martin's collection. We've grown them on and they've really become quite nice. Thanks David.
It looks like we're in for another cold spell, but nothing like the forecast I mentioned yesterday. It may get down to 30F or so, and maybe a dusting of snow. No big deal. In the meantime, the daffodils are blooming, along with crocus, snowdrops, etc. And the Epis in the greenhouses are beginning to set buds.

  1. I killed my big Haworthia truncata so I started some new ones from seed. The seedlings are so cute. They look like little green Hershey Kisses.
