Haworthia Fasciata is a rarely sold plant. It is a Haworthia attenuata. Looks like var. Zebrina. Fasciata is a column growing plants with arms curving inwards not outwards like yours. So many plants are misidentified as Fasciata but are really Attenuata. I also made the same mistake and was showed. I have a hybrid fasciata x pumila and it had very stiff hard leaves that curve inwards.

My Agreement didn't all show up. I agreed with purpleinopp that the plant is H attenuata v zebrina. That is why I called attention to the first link I posted.

Well since I am new to this and know little to nothing about succulents, etc. I will explain a bit about this plant.
I bought it from eBay because I liked the colors Smiling and the person had it labeled as..... a haworthia Fasciata "Pearl Plant". I went back to my invoice and looked, that is how I came up the the name, and they came in a cluster, there were three, i just separated them because the pup came loose. That's all I can tell you Shrug!

Not a problem Stush. We were having ISP problems and half of what I typed did not make the "cut" *Blush*

Kim, The info below describes the differences. H fasciata Pearl Plant is rarely found in cultivation.

" The plants are generally small, less than 10 cm (4 in) high. The triangular shaped leaves are green with narrow white crested strips on the outside. At the end of the leaf is a non acute spine. The summer flowers appear in October and November, on the end of an inflorescence.
The species has similar markings to Haworthia attenuata, which is commonly grown as a house plant. The two are therefore frequently confused with each other, and a great many H.attenuata specimens are mislabelled as the rarer H.fasciata.

H. fasciata f. browniana

H. fasciata f. patensie
However Haworthia fasciata is rare in cultivation, and can easily be distinguished by the smooth upper (ie. inner) surfaces of its leaves. Its white tubercles occur only on the lower (outer) sides of its leaves; whereas H.attenuata has roughness or tubercles on both sides of its leaves. The leaves of H.fasciata are also stouter, more deltoid, and fibrous inside. They tend to curve inwards more. Unlike H.attenuata, older H.fasciata specimens also develop long columnal stems."

Here is a picture of the pup, better image. Hopefully you can make a definite determination for me. You can see the inside and outside.
