This little guy was labeled as 'Haworthia Variety'. Can anyone give an I.D.?

This is a plant that looks identical to one that came up a while ago on DG. No definite ID was ever found, but the general consensus was some kind of Gasteraloe... so a hybrid between a Gasteria and an Aloe.

I found this link : http://www.cactus-art.biz/sche...

In the page it seems to id it as Haworthia attenuata var. clariperia, but the edges of your plant is smoother..there is a resemblance though.

But it also looks like a Gasteria hybrid Shrug!

So maybe it is just playing safe with the label..it is a some variety of Haworthia

I think that is a very close match! That solves an ID question for me as well! Thanks!

I'm so glad I saw this thread because I think I have that very same plant and I thought it was a Haworthia of some sort! I'll have to go out tomorrow and find it to take a picture for comparison.
