I have so much trouble comparing photos for identification and my vision isn't the greatest so I thought I'd see if anyone here recognizes these plants.

I had this one labeled as Haworthia reinwardtii but I'm not sure. We have a few varieties listed in the database: http://garden.org/plants/search/text/?q=Haworthia+reinwardti... but my eyes aren't cooperating.


This one reminds me of Gasteraloe (XGasteraloe 'Pauline') but I really have no clue if it's even xGasteraloe.

Does this one look like xGasteraloe?? Excuse the debris in the crevices, it's been sitting beneath a tree:

The first one, It's a Haworthia. Maybe this one? Haworthia reinwardtii var. chalumnensis

The first one definitely looks like Haworthia reinwardtii, which one I would not be able to say. One other alternative could be H. coarctata.
To me the other two both look like Gasteraloes. I do not think that he 2nd picture is the plant that it reminds you off. No teeth on the margin of the xGateraloe 'Pauline', which your plant has. Could convince myself that this is some kind of miniature Aloe.
The third plant reminds me of XGasteraloe 'Royal Highness', but as with most aloe hybrids there are many very similar ones out there so tracking down the exact cultivar/hybrid name is going to be tough.

@HamiltonSquare and @mcvansoest, thanks for taking a look!

My Haworthia does look a lot like H. reiwardtii but it also looks a lot like:


Since there are so many that look alike, I've just uploaded my photo to the general database entry for Haworthia.

I will also upload both of my xGasteraloe photos to the general entry for that plant and perhaps at some point some one will recognize the cultivar and be able to help me with a more exact ID.
