I got these at the local succulent club, I'm pretty sure they said they were Haworthia gracilis. I'm looking at that type online and I'm not sure I have the right tag. It kind of looks like Haworthia translucens. Anyway, they are very small and there is a bud growing from one of them. I had a tough time getting a picture of the bud, but I think I did it. I'm kind of excited about it.

I have them growing in the top of a coconut shell, they have gotten slightly larger but they have not grown much. Anyway, here are the pictures.

the shelf of our BBQ so you can see how really small they are.

the Haworthia on the left in the larger part of a coconut shell, is (I believe) Haworthia cymbiformis.

I may have gotten the tags messed up and they are fading so I'm going by older pics of the plants with tags when i got them. The succulent club is having its big, annual show this weekend (I'll take pictures) and after that is over I'll carry my plants to a meeting and see what they say about their ID.

I just hope nothing happens to the bloom and that I get a good picture of it. Hurray!
