Small bumpy Haworthia from a very limited area in the Eastern Cape of South Africa. This variety of attenuata used to be a distinct species, but the leaves are not smooth, as the name would suggest (they have tubercles on both surfaces). Very prolific habit. Relatively common in cultivation. The former species H. glabrata used to have a var. concolor, which was apparently folded into var. glabrata when the species was demoted.
