In honor of bikerdoc who drop-kicked me into growing haworthias seriously, I invite you to revive this show. We all know how these threads work, so I will start with this Tsurupika Green, one of Renny Wong's cultivars.
Yes, Rina. I’m pretty certain I still have one.
Great idea Pagan! Howard also really got me into Haworthia.
First one should be Aboukyu, from Japan. It is offsetting from the middle again which is a real challenge to separate. The others I'll have to skip on names for now otherwise I may never end up posting!
Damn, that Aboukyu is so glassy when grown well, Kevin. I'm pretty sure I have one languishing in the basement, looking horrific. I'll have to look for it.
Also, thanks to Jeff who just posted a bunch of photos on Haworthians Part 11. But mostly, all my haworthias are Howard's fault lol
Help: Fullsize fridge/freezer-Frigidaire, Electrolux or Thermador?
Help me make this space cosy
POLL: Are you hosting holiday dinners this year?
I don’t like my brand new kitchen. Is it dated ?
I’m not sure what the specific cultivar is but this was happy with whatever care I gave it
It could be one of the kerjillion varieties of H. cymbiformis, Chris. Nicely grown.
Thanks Pagan and Kevin for the wonderful comments, but I had nothing to do with your passion for Haws. Both of you grow some assume plants.
I think it’s time to divide!
Thanks to all for kickstarting this thread, again
I'm not a Haworthia grower. Only have a couple of common ones. But I LOVE IT when you guys spring forth with the exotic and esoteric Haws. Better photos from you than I would EVER find online, even at Pinterest. So enjoyable and beautiful! Thank you.
I have few, but not 'fancy' haws...just common haws easy to buy.
Friend of mine got some and is asking if they are OK - can you experts help pls? Not sure if photos are good enough.
This was named GOLD haw:
This one is supposedly Silver swirl:
Both look good. The first one is short on chlorophyll so may not grow well.
H. reticulata var hurlingii,
Sold to me as "Evening Glow" which (quick googling) apparently translates to "Yuyake"
H. obtusa cv "Black Obtusa"
H. obtusa cv "Yamada Black"
Doc, why don't I have Yuyake and Kuroomado? (here we go again)
Pagan, good question. When MiniGarden opens for sales next month maybe we can get you some beauties!
I always kill these every time I try to grow it, even though I feel I understand how. I wonder if it's because I always start with home depot plants in wet potting soil. Does anyone happen to have a picture of what HEALTHY roots look like on n these?
@Amynoacids (z6 MI)
I had just separated these two dielseanas last year. Active roots typically look plump, light-colored. The color gets a bit darker as they age but the plant cycles through old and new ones pretty rapidly, sometimes losing them all altogether if it's too hot AND too wet.
I've had this particular plant for about nine years and you can tell from the main stem that it has gone through significant number of root cycles. The active ones typically grow out of the most bottom leaves. Sometimes haworthias would shoot roots out from the middle of the rosette. No clue why, they just do.
When you get BBS haworthias, just wash off the roots and replant them in the most airy substrate you can mix up, like perlite with the powdery stuff sifted out. Most of us crazies get pumice for growing these things.
You can actually grow these things in pure peat but that is a different discussion.
Hope this helps! Let's start your accumulation lol
@bikerdoc5968 Z6 SE MI Your consistency in care has led to great growth and development of your plants. I can tell they have grown so much since the last time I visited. When things warm up again, I think I may dare to order some Mini Garden plants again this year.
@Chris (6a in MA) Nice clump. After many years, I find I struggle now with clumps for some reason.
@rina_Ontario,Canada 5a Your picture seems to match up with those I've seen online to Silver Swirl as well. Fancy you with the variegates. =)
When separating your Haworthia, do you do anything about the brownish/old root base part? It just gets thicker and thicker under the middle of the plant I find over many many seasons of growing/shedding roots.
Here are some separations I did earlier in the month. Well overdue but I hate growing teeny plants these days.
@rina_Ontario,Canada 5a Here is my closest variagate. It grew terribly for probably 2 years and now I have a better handle on it:
@bikerdoc5968 Z6 SE MI Do you still grow Vector?
I have a couple of Vectors, for some reason. I can't remember why I got two, but this is one of them.
H. emelyae var comptoniana
This one below had Haworthia breueri as one parent and a complex splendens-picta-wimii as the other
And..overtaken H. pygmaea var. argenteomaculosa
I was snapping pics of on-going problems on my haworthia bench. So here are some of them (there are always several active tantrum-throwers since these fits sometimes last for years).
H. chloracantha. I took it out of the basement so I can keep an eye on it. I am giving it more water now than usual. This is probably the wrong solution, it's hot where it is but I'm planning to unpot it to see what's up.
H. breueri, also no clue what's up.
H. archeri. WTH. this has been going on for years. Years!
On the left is a Gasteria armstrongii offset that was growing under the pumice. On the left, H. turgida var suberecta, ripped from the cluster by a bad fall.
On the other hand, this Maarten finally turned around. It only took three years! I have not been able to turn it red, though. It burned when I put it under the sun lol duh.
Here also a shout out to Howard, and in my case to Kevin too! The two of you got me into haws, and aided and abetted me along the way!
N111 from Mini Garden. Tiny, and a favourite.
H. cymbiformis var. cymbiformis (?).
H. bayeri sp.
Fat little H. cooperi truncata.
‘Green Dragon’ had all its roots broken off in a long transit, but it bounced back and is fine now.
