Possibly a Hawarthia.

The ridges are hard. It is growing long, not bushy. Possible wanted to be vertical at one point? Thinish leaves

Thank you!
Do those also grow long like mine? The pictures I have seen of a haworthia, they tend to be bushy.

I also think Haworthia. Not sure which one, only just started growing more than the token one of them. I am sure there are people on this forum who will know.

Some will do that, they tend end up creeping along the ground. It could imply a hybrid, as the base looks a little like some climbing Aloes, but the ridges on the leaves suggest Haworthia. The elongated growth could also be a response to limited light conditions, these plants like very bright light.

Yes its Haworthia.

It looks like Haworthia to me too but I'm not familiar with them so I'd have no idea which it might be.
