Jay - It does look like that one, but the plant does not get very big. Not as big as the Plant Data says for Little Zebra Plant. Is there a smaller Haworthia that it could be? Or is mine just a little mini-mee?

It does look like Haworthia, how about Zebra Haworthia (Haworthia fasciata)

LOL!

Just call it Haworthia and move on with your life...

Whoops... Hit finished by mistake...

You can rule out any fasciata ssp, they will not have white dots on the inside of the leaf.
It's going to be a hybrid in the attenuate group... If I had to wager a guess, I'd say it's wide band zebra, but I'm not sure.
They're such a variable group of plants, without some provenance, all we can do is guess...
Please tree mail me for trades, I'm ALWAYS actively looking for more new plants, and love to trade!

I got to thinking about the name and Zebra something or other was a name that rang a bell. So I think that it very well might be "Little Zebra Plant". THANKS to everyone for your help!!! I have babies coming off the flower scape. It's so crazy to see these little baby plants. I had no idea that is how they proliferate! Pretty cool as I love the look of this plant! Thumbs up Smiling

Zebra plant is just the common name for haws with white bands.

It's almost certainly not subfasiata,
They have shorter more triangle shaped leaves, and much less white markings than your plant.
Fasciata alone is quite rare, subfasciata is even harder to come by, they're simply less attractive than many of the newer plants that are becoming more available all the time.

Yours also has the white markings inside the leaf and has a lot of white bands, more than normal, I'm sure it's a special select clone or cultivar, I can't keep up with them all, the world of haws is exploding!

I think the best place for that plant in the database is just the general page.

Those little babies on the bloom stem can indeed root and grow, but they're so tiny... I've not had good luck, the leaves root with ease!
It takes several years to get good sized plants from either method but it's a great way to increase your collection!
Of course you can just separate all those pups to make more too.
It's hard to have too many haws!

This is my wide band zebra for comparison
I have one I suspect may be subfasciata, but proving it would take an expert I think
