Haworthia bolusii GM555

If H. truncata et. al. are at one end, surely these lovelies are at the other end. Delicate looking and soft to the touch, Haworthia boluii is an entirely different animal. (Pardon the mixed metaphors.) It's hard to believe they're even the same genus. But the proof is - of course - in the flowers.
During the winter, when the sun is in short supply, these little plants flourish... in the greenhouse of course. They're not prepared to weather our winter cold. But that's OK. They just provide another reason to go out and sit in the greenhouse ... as if I needed an excuse.
