Alan,
Bob Smoley's Gardenworld has Haqorthia cooperi for $3. It does not have the var. obtusa after it. May not be the same as what you are looking for.
Arid Lands Greenhouses has Haworthia cooperi var. cooperi 4-inch pots for $6. Looks simular.
Check out the others. Also Bob doesn't show pictures of all there stuff.

I don't have that one, but do have this one that is somewhat similar: Star Window Plant (Haworthia cymbiformis var. cymbiformis)

I've been getting more haworthias lately because they do well as houseplants for me. They multiply well too.

I have what I think is Haworthia gracilis growing in a coconut husk. It doesn't grow very fast but then it doesn't have much soil either. It's slightly transparent and has nice markings.

Well, I didn't have any small pots I liked when I got the plants but I had a bunch of coco shells. After this last rainy season the shells are coming apart a bit so I will probably have to move them before summer. We have a lot of Jicara gourds that grow here and they are a bit stronger than coconut shells so maybe I'll move them into one of those. I tried putting another Haworthia in the ground but the slugs destroyed it in days. Thumbs down When I was out looking at this one I noticed that one other that I have in a coco shell has been slimed and eaten by something. I couldn't find any slugs hiding nearby and they are sitting on a shelf of the BBQ which I had hoped would discourage slugs. I think it is a type of Haworthia cooperai from the faded tag but there is so little left I can't be sure. I hate slugs!

I love the way you plant them in coconut shells too.
