|I think this is Haworthia Maraisii, its very cute, I've placed a quarter for size...there is a little white speck that in the photo looks like sand but its a flower spike, these are very slow growing so it'll be awhile before it blooms but when it does I'll post photos |

|Cute and smallest I've seen..I love Haworthias; the ones I've had were happy inside the house. Sometimes I get tired of worrying about enough light for the semps and echeverias and sedum, etc. The Hawworthias and Gasterias and Adromishcus type succulents are a relief to take care of since they don't need much.|

|Hi Bev Haworthias are a really nice indoor plant! when I move them outdoors I always have to be sure to hide them a bit by other pots. This little guys though doesn't grow much at all, and I think "he's not happy, got to figure out where to put him" and then I'll realize that there's a bit of bloom and I think its just an amazingly slow grower |
Letting you know there is a new forum and you'd be welcome there its Pacific Northwest gardeners (PNW) which I know you're not that, but Zuzu just joined saying she's growing some plants that are appropriate to our Northwest climate, so feel free to check it out, its fun being a new forum we're introducing ourselves and people make me smile!

|Greg, Funny you mentioned PNW cause i moved to CA from 2 years of living Spokane, WA and let me tell you my semps froze their little "rosettes" off. There was a nite there in Oct that reached 4 degrees and I was piling all the shade cloth and N-sulate cloth I could find to protect them. Of course in Spring I lost a lot of them when 30% of them bloomed.|

Greg do you still have the baby Haworthia? It is really "cute."
Know this is very old post but am ready through this forum and saw it.

|Hi Marilyn yep I sure do have it...it is in too dim of light though so has gotten quite green but it is still only about the size of a Kennedy half - I'll update photos, but to me it doesn't look any different! It will bloom later during the summer, so I know its doing just fine, but I did think it was going to send out pups, and thus far that hasn't happened...just this one single plant in a pot that is little but probably still too large for it! |

So glad to hear it survived, maybe you will get seed if not pups.
