Alan,
Bob Smoley's Gardenworld has Haqorthia cooperi for $3. It does not have the var. obtusa after it. May not be the same as what you are looking for.
Arid Lands Greenhouses has Haworthia cooperi var. cooperi 4-inch pots for $6. Looks simular.
Check out the others. Also Bob doesn't show pictures of all there stuff.

I don't have that one, but do have this one that is somewhat similar: Star Window Plant (Haworthia cuspidata)

I've been getting more haworthias lately because they do well as houseplants for me. They multiply well too.

I have what I think is Haworthia gracilis growing in a coconut husk. It doesn't grow very fast but then it doesn't have much soil either. It's slightly transparent and has nice markings.

Looks right to me. Those succulents growing in coconut shells are so cool! Thumbs up

Well, I didn't have any small pots I liked when I got the plants but I had a bunch of coco shells. After this last rainy season the shells are coming apart a bit so I will probably have to move them before summer. We have a lot of Jicara gourds that grow here and they are a bit stronger than coconut shells so maybe I'll move them into one of those. I tried putting another Haworthia in the ground but the slugs destroyed it in days. Thumbs down When I was out looking at this one I noticed that one other that I have in a coco shell has been slimed and eaten by something. I couldn't find any slugs hiding nearby and they are sitting on a shelf of the BBQ which I had hoped would discourage slugs. I think it is a type of Haworthia cooperai from the faded tag but there is so little left I can't be sure. I hate slugs!

I love the way you plant them in coconut shells too.
